HUNTINGTON – A woman has filed suit against a fast-food restaurant, alleging her finger was seriously cut while she was attempting to retrieve food passed to her through a drive-thru window.
Terri Thompson filed a lawsuit June 11 in Cabell Circuit Court against River Valley Management, doing business as Sonic Drive In. The fast food chain later removed the case to federal court.
In her complaint, Thompson says her finger was seriously and deeply cut on July 29, 2008, when food was passed to her through a drive-thru window.
Thompson does not specify on how her injury occurred, but does say she was rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled and suffered great physical pain and anguish of her body and mind due to the injury. In addition, she incurred medical bills and lost earnings, according to the complaint.
Because Thompson is a West Virginia resident and because River Valley Management is an out-of-state corporation, the store removed the complaint to the U.S. District Court of Southern West Virginia. In addition, Thompson is seeking more than $75,000, the company contends.
Thompson will be represented by R. Matthew Vital and Matthew R. Oliver of Vital and Vital in Huntington.
River Valley Management will be represented by Maria Marino Potter and Donna S. Quesenberry of MacCorkle, Lavender and Sweeney of Charleston.
