CHARLESTON – A Charleston woman has filed a slip-and-fall lawsuit against Capitol Market.
Lucy W. Lewis filed her complaint against Capitol Market Inc. on May 1 in Kanawha Circuit Court. Capitol Market is a shopping destination with indoor shops featuring fresh fish, fresh meat, fresh produce, books, wine, chocolates and West Virginia-related items as well as a year-round outdoor market.
Lewis says she was visiting Capitol Market on May 31, 2013, when he tripped on electrical conduits that had been laid across permanent pedestrian walkways used by customers.
She “was injured when she tripped on the aforesaid electric conduits, causing her to fall violently to the ground, thereby injuring her left shoulder, sustaining severe and permanent injuries to her person, including, but not limited to, a permanent and debilitating fracture to the humerus bone in her arm,” the complaint states.
Lewis claims she has endured past and future pain and suffering, past and future loss of enjoyment of life as well as past and future medical expenses.
She seeks compensatory damages and other relief.
She is being represented by David H. Carriger and Stuart Calwell of The Calwell Practice LC. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib.
