Woman sues after injury at Charleston Town Center

CHARLESTON -- A woman is suing Charleston Town Center Company after she was injured while on its premises.

On Aug. 19, 2010, Peggy Hall went to the restroom at Charleston Town Center when she slipped in a puddle of water that was created from a toilet that had overflowed and was injured, according to a complaint filed Aug. 9 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Hall claims the defendant had a duty to safely maintain its property in a reasonably prudent manner so as to prevent the fall and injuries she sustained.

Charleston Town Center Company's breach of duty caused Hall to suffer lost wages, medical bills and other incidental expenses and caused her to suffer injuries, according to the suit.

Hall claims the defendant's actions also caused her to endure physical and emotional pain and suffering; annoyance and inconvenience; and loss of her capacity to enjoy life.

The defendant's negligence caused Hall to experience burning, sharp lower back pain and was transported on a stretcher to St. Francis Hospital Emergency Department via EMS, according to the suit.

Hall is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Michael J. Del Giudice.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 12-C-1597
