CHARLESTON - A Kanawha County woman has filed a suit against a national home improvement store after she was injured when walking into the store.

Sue Mills filed the suit June 27 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Lowe's Home Centers Inc.

According to the suit, Mills and her husband were entering the Lowe's at Nitro Market Place in Cross Lanes.

Mills claims that before she reached the front door, her foot got tangled in a foreign substance and she fell to the ground, injuring her head, ankle, knee, wrist and other areas of her body.

According to the suit, Mills has suffered severe physical and mental injuries, pain of the body and mind, mental anguish, emotional distress, anxiety, suffering, annoyance, inconvenience, transportation cost and other miscellaneous expenses.

Mills claims Lowe's was negligent by failing to monitor the outside front main entrance area of their store when they knew, or should have known, that the area would be more likely to have excessive debris, causing dangerous walking conditions.

Mills seeks unspecified damages.

Attorney Michelle L. Johnson is representing Mills. The case has been assigned to Judge Paul Zakaib.
