CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County woman is suing McDonald's Corporation after she suffered injuries while in its South Charleston location's restroom.
Sarah Wiseman was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On April 9, Jennifer Rose was in the restroom of the South Charleston McDonald's when a metal toilet paper holder fell and slammed into her head, causing her serious injuries, according to a complaint filed June 25 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Rose claims the defendants failed to reasonably maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition.
The defendants also failed to fix or warn of hidden dangers and/or defects on its property, according to the suit.
Rose claims the defendants failed to reasonably inspect the premises for dangerous conditions and negligently decided to use an unsafe device without posting proper warnings.

Rose is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. She is being represented by S. Brooks West II.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Charles E. King.
