The Greenbrier is located in White Sulphur Springs.

CHARLESTON - A Greenbrier County resident has filed a suit against the state's most recognizable hotel after she was injured when she fell on a temporary dance floor the hotel has installed.

Susan Adkins filed a suit Oct. 30 against CSX Hotels, also known as The Greenbrier.

Adkins attended an event Dec. 3, 2005, in the Colonial Hall ballroom at The Greenbrier, which had a temporary dance floor in place.

"While dancing on the temporary dance floor, (Adkins) fell due to a hidden defect on the floor and sustained serious bodily and emotional injuries," the suit says.

According to the suit, Adkins claims The Greenbrier failed to properly install the dance floor, so that is did not fit together properly, creating a hidden defect that caused an unsafe condition.

Adkins seeks damages for bodily and emotional injury, future injury and pain and suffering, annoyance and inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages and future medical bills.

She seeks compensatory and punitive damages.

Attorney R. Brandon Johnson is representing Adkins. The case has been assigned to Judge Charles King.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number 07-C-2355
