POINT PLEASANT - A Point Pleasant woman is suing a pharmacy that she claims caused her slip and fall during a March 2004 incident.

Louise H. Caynor claims that she slipped when her foot struck a display stand at 9 p.m. March 10, 2004, at Fruth Pharmacy in a lawsuit filed March 10 in Mason Circuit Court.

"The Defendant's negligence proximately caused the Plaintiff… to sustain serious and permanent injuries, including, but not limited to, damages to her bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and other tissues in her left knee and left shoulder along with a shock to her entire physical and nervous systems," the complaint says.

Caynor alleges that her foot was caught by one of the wheels sticking out from the bottom of the display stand. She says that all her injuries are likely to be permanent.

"The Plaintiff has suffered and will continue to suffer for the remainder of her life physical pain, discomfort, mental anguish and nervous and emotional damage and disorder and the inability to enjoy the normal pursuits of life, including recreational endeavors," the complaint adds.

Caynor seeks compensatory damages and court fees.

James M. Casey will represent Caynor. Judge Thomas C. Evans III has been assigned the case.

Mason Circuit Court case number 06-C-35
