MOUNDSVILLE - A Moundsville woman says McDonald's Corp. is to blame for her slipping on a patch of ice.
Susie J. Darrah filed a lawsuit July 21 in Marshall Circuit Court against McDonald's, stating it is responsible for the "maintenance of the sidewalk to and from the restaurant."

As a result, she says she has suffered serious personal injuries like: Medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, the loss of the ability to enjoy life and becoming an increased industrial risk.
She seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
