CHARLESTON - A woman who allegedly slipped and fell in grease is suing Dragon Garden Buffet Corp. for her injuries.
On Dec. 10, Mary E. Carpenter was a patron at Dragon when she slipped on grease and fell, according to a complaint filed May 31 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Carpenter claims the defendant negligently allowed grease to accumulate on the tile floor near the buffet.
The defendant had a duty to keep its place of business free of conditions that could reasonably be foreseen to endanger customers and failed to do so, according to the suit.
Carpenter claims the defendants negligence was a breach in duty of care.
As a direct and proximate result of the defendant breach of duty, Carpenter suffered damages, including serious personal injury; ongoing pain and suffering; and mental distress, according to the suit.
Carpenter is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Harry F. Bell Jr. and Jonathan W. Price of the Bell Law Firm PLLC.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib Jr.
