MOUNDSVILLE – A woman is suing a Walmart chain store over claims she tripped on a loose rug.

Melanie Jeanne Carr filed a recent lawsuit in Marshall Circuit Court against Walmart Supercenter and Walmart Stores East.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 31, 2013, Carr slipped and fell on a loose rug as she was exiting the store at 10 Walmart Drive, Moundsville.

Walmart Supercenter negligently failed to maintain the floor area from tripping hazards and failed to warm business invitees of the danger, the suit states, and failed to take proper measures to eliminate the danger.

Carr seeks damages for injuries sustained, along with interest and costs. She is represented by attorney Herman D. Lantz of Lantz Law Offices in Moundsville.

Marshall Circuit Court case number: 15-C-10K
