CHARLESTON – A Kanawha County woman blames a Charleston hotel after she fell on the icy parking lot.
Amy Fuller filed the lawsuit Jan. 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Holiday Inn Charleston House, located at 600 Kanawha Blvd E.
In the suit, Fuller says she was stepping onto the hotel's parking lot on Feb. 9, 2004, when she suffered a severe fall that was caused by ice on the lot.
The hotel, the suit alleges, had a duty to properly maintain its parking lot and to otherwise exercise due care for the safety of those lawfully on the property. The hotel breached that duty, Fuller claims in the suit filed by attorney D. Scott Tyree.
Fuller says she suffered severe and permanent disabling injuries, sustained medical expenses, severe pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, a loss of the ability to enjoy life, an impairment of the ability to care for herself as well as other damages.
Additionally, Fuller says she will incur further medical expenses for surgeries and other medical care and treatment. She says she also will suffer future severe pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of ability to enjoy life, impairment of the ability to care for herself and her family, loss of future earnings and earning capacity and other damages.
She seeks compensatory damages and other relief, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and costs.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Duke Bloom
