WINFIELD – A Putnam County man is suing over claims he was injured when he slipped on ice in a Little General Convenience Store parking lot.
Forest Scarbro filed a lawsuit Dec. 10 in Putnam Circuit Court against Little General Stores Inc., citing negligence.
According to the complaint, Scarbro was in the parking lot near the gas pumps in front of the Little General Convenience Store in Hurricane on Feb. 15, when he slipped on ice and snow and sustained injuries, including torn cartilage in his knee that will require surgery. The defendant is accused of negligence in failing to remove the ice and snow or warn the plaintiff of the dangerous condition.
Scarbro seeks compensatory damages, interest and costs.
He is represented by attorneys Paul E. Biser of Fredeking and Fredeking Law Offices in Huntington, and Charles Amos of Barrett Chafin Lowry & Amos in Huntington. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Joseph Reeder.
