CHARLESTON -- A St. Albans man is suing A Scooters & RV, LLC and two employees after he claims he was injured on an ATV.

On Sept. 8, 2009, Adam Jay Meadows went to the defendants to purchase an ATV, according to a complaint filed May 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Meadows claims Ronnie Lee Prater offered for him to ride on an ATV with him, so he agreed to.

Prater then began to operate the ATV in a negligent and/or reckless manner, causing it to flip over and land on Meadows' leg, according to the suit.

Meadows claims Dimitri Chaber and A Scooters & RV were not properly supervising Prater.

The defendants also failed to provide necessary and appropriate training to its employees, according to the suit.

Meadows is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Robert D. Cline Jr., Robert A. Campbell, R. Chad Duffield and Eric M. Hayhurst.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 11-C-834
