Woman blames Wal-Mart for fall

By John O'Brien | Nov 3, 2006

CHARLESTON - A Braxton County woman says her slip and fall is Wal-Mart's fault and is suing the company in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Cathy Dennison filed the suit Oct. 26, alleging that she and husband Kelly were both damaged by the fall.

On Nov. 12, 2004, she claims to have been visiting the Summersville Wal-Mart "when she slipped and fell on a wet floor."

The complaint does not specify what injuries she sustained.

"The defendant and its agents and employers knew or should have known of the unsafe and dangerous condition that would have been caused by failing to warn the consumers of the hazardous condition," the complaint says.

It also says Kelly Dennison "suffered a loss of spousal consortium, including but not limited to the loss of society, solace, companionship, services, support, affection and kindly offices of his wife."

Charleston attorney Phillip Stowers is representing the Dennisons.

Judge Charles King has been assigned the case.
