HUNTINGTON -- A woman is suing after allegedly slipping and falling in a hospital cafeteria.

Frances Marcum and Harry Marcum filed suit June 30 in Cabell Circuit Court against Cabell-Huntington Hospital.

According to the complaint, on July 20, 2012, Frances Marcum went to the defendant's hospital to visit her grandson, who was a patient. During the visit, she went to the cafeteria and slipped on water that was discharging from a cooler, causing her to fall and sustain a torn labrum that eventually required surgery to remedy, the suit states.

The defendant is accused of negligence for failing to keep the walkway clear and failing to maintain the premises.

The Marcums are seeking compensatory damages, damages for future medical costs, interest and costs.

They are represented by Hurricane attorney David M. Adkins of the Adkins Law Firm PLLC. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Christopher D. Chiles.
