Falling umbrella store display results in lawsuit

By Cara Bailey | Mar 17, 2008

CHARLESTON - A Putnam County woman has filed a suit against Value City after she was injured at the St. Albans location.

Barbara L. Tucker filed the suit Feb. 11 in Kanawha Circuit Court after she was injured Feb. 12, 2006, when a display of large patio umbrellas fell on her, causing significant injuries.

According to the suit, Value City breached the duty of care by negligently creating a dangerous condition, specifically placing the umbrellas in an inappropriate and unsafe display rack.

Tucker claims Value City's negligence caused her injuries and therefore the company is responsible for damages to compensate her injuries.

Attorney Robert B. Warner is representing Tucker. The case has been assigned to Judge Jennifer Bailey Walker.
