CHARLES TOWN - A Jefferson County man blames a restaurant for his injuries after he says he was thrown out of the establishment.
David and Rosemary Hooe filed a suit April 16 in Jefferson Circuit Court, against VDS Food and Beverage Services, Inc., doing business as Cliffside Bar and Grill.
David Hooe claims that on April 17, 2005, while "having an enjoyable time," he was roughly thrown out.
According to the suit, an employee of Cliffside Bar and Grill used force to remove Hooe and pushed him out the door and into a rusted metal railing.
The suit says the railing gave way and Hooe fell eight to 10 feet to the ground. He says he suffered injuries to his head, hip, wrist and back, including a concussion. Hooe claims he has accrued more than $8,000 in medical bills.
Hooe claims the owners of the establishment have a duty to maintain the entire property on which the restaurant is located. He also claims he was forced to miss work because of his injuries and suffered a significant loss of income.
David and Rosemary Hooe, through attorney Kirk Bottner, seek compensation to cover their injuries and losses.
