HUNTINGTON -- A woman is suing Applebee's Neighborhood Bar & Grill after a fall in the restaurant.
Sonia Wellman was at Applebee's on Jan. 25, 2008, when she slipped and fell, according to a complaint filed Oct. 13 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Wellman claims Applebee's had a duty of care to keep the premises at a reasonably safe condition so that business invitees could use them in an ordinary and reasonable way without danger.
Applebee's breached the foregoing duties and was negligent by failing to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition, according to the suit.
As a result of the restaurant's careless negligent acts, Wellman suffered injury and damages which have caused and will continue to cause her physical and mental pain and suffering; has incurred permanent injury to her body; has incurred medical expenses; and will continue to incur medical expenses in over $28,000.
Wellman is suing for $28,000 worth of medical expenses and then $28,728.26 paid in part or in full by Medicare, for a total of $57,456.52. She is being represented by William L. Mundy of Mundy & Nelson.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
