CHARLESTON -- An Ethridge, Tenn., woman is suing Logan's Roadhouse after a server knocked her down and injured her.

On Aug. 18, 2008, Dorma Robards was attending lunch with a companion at Logan's Roudhouse's Charleston location, according to a complaint filed Aug. 3 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Robards claims after entering the premises, she and her companion were escorted to a table by the hostess and were about to be seated when John Doe negligently began hurriedly walking backward away from his table.

While not paying attention and walking backward, Doe struck Robards, knocking her off of her feet and onto the concrete floor, according to the suit.

Robards claims as a result of the blow, she suffered a broken hip and wrist and was hospitalized for approximately one month.

The defendants owed a duty to exercise reasonable care and breached its duty, according to the suit.

Robards is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Travis A. Griffith and Michael A. Olivio.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis Bloom.
