CHARLESTON -- An Elkview woman is suing Appalachian Power Company and an unknown employee for negligence.

On Nov. 20, 2009, the unknown Appalachian Power Company employee was working on service lines to Regina L. Jarrett's business, the County Cottage Hair Salon, when he negligently connected the service lines, resulting in a service overload to the busines, according to a complaint filed April 6 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Jarrett claims Appalachian Power Company was vicariously liable for the acts and omissions of its employees, including the unknown employee.

As a result of the negligence of the unknown employee, Jarrett suffered economic damages, annoyance and inconvenience, according to the suit.

Jarrett claims she previously attempted to resolve the matter with Appalachian Power Company, but received no response.

Jarrett is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by James R. Akers II.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis Bloom.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 10-C-658
