Postal worker blames Classic Builders for icy parking lot

HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County man is suing Classic Builders, Inc., for injuries he allegedly sustained from falling on an icy parking lot.

Carl Bailey, Classic Fencing, LLC, and John Doe were also named as defendants in the suit.

On Dec. 6, 2010, David B. Davis, an employee of the United States Postal Service, was delivering mail in the 2500 block of Fifth Avenue when he slipped and fell on an ice-covered parking lot and was injured, according to a complaint filed Nov. 29 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Davis claims the defendants owned or controlled the parking lot and failed to monitor the condition of the parking lot.

The defendants failed to correct the unsafe, dangerous and hazardous condition and caused Davis to suffer injuries to his head, neck and shoulders, among other injuries, according to the suit.

Davis claims it was unknown to him that the parking lot was covered by a sheet of ice that was concealed by a dusting of snow.

The defendants’ failure caused Davis to be severely injured; incur substantial medical expenses; endure pain and suffering; sustain an impairment of his capacity to enjoy life; suffer a loss of wages; and suffer aggravation, annoyance and mental anguish, according to the suit.

Davis is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by John Kennedy Bailey.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
