WHEELING – A Ritchie County woman says a college she
attended allowed hazardous conditions on campus, causing her to suffer serious
injuries from a fall.
Lindsey Bush and her husband, Robin Bush, filed a lawsuit May
2 in Ohio Circuit Court against the West Virginia Northern Community College
Board of Governors, alleging negligence and loss of consortium.
According to the complaint, Lindsey Bush tripped and fell as
she was leaving the college’s Education Center building on May 5, 2014. The
suit says the nursing graduate tripped on an unmarked, raised ledge just
outside the building’s front doors, fracturing her kneecap and suffering a head
wound and other injuries.
The Bushes seek a jury trial, compensatory damages for
physical and mental injuries, plus interest and litigation costs. They are represented
by attorney William B. Summers of Summers & Associates in Parkersburg.
Judge James P. Mazzone is assigned to the case.
