CHARLESTON -- A woman and her husband are suing Charleston Area Medical Center after she claims she was injured.
On March 31, 2008, Ernestine Conn was a patient at CAMC's General Division and was attempting to sit in a beside chair when the chair slipped out from under her, according to a complaint filed Feb. 1 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Conn claims she fell onto the floor when the chair slipped. She claims the chair, due to the lack of non-skid pad and/or unduly slippery floor, was unsafe for use.
As a result of the fall, Conn sustained injuries, including a severed coccyx, according to the suit. Conn claims she is permanently handicapped because of the injuries.
Conn's husband, Stanley Conn, claims he has lost consortium, society and companionship with his wife because of her injuries.
The Conns are seeking compensatory damages. They are being represented by Stephen P. Meyer of Meyer, Ford & Glasser.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey.
