Huntington woman sues Cracker Barrel for injuries

HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington woman is suing Cracker Barrel Old Country Store after she was injured by an employee of the restaurant.

Twenty-five unknown and unnamed individuals were also named as defendants in the suit.

On Aug. 2, 2010, Melda Trogdon was at the defendant's restaurant in Barboursville and was attempting to enter the bathroom when an unknown employee and/or agent of the restaurant exited the bathroom, causing the swinging door to strike her and cause her injury, according to a complaint filed May 1 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Trogdon claims the unknown employee acted carelessly, recklessly, negligently, willfully, wantonly, maliciously and unlawfully when he exited the bathroom without ensuring the doorway was clear of patrons.

As a result of the defendants' negligent manner, the unknown employee caused the door to strike Trogdon and caused her severe personal injuries to her upper and lower extremities, according to the suit.

Trogdon is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by R.R. Fredeking II.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
