HUNTINGTON -- A man is suing Pathology Services Group, Inc. after he fell and was injured on its premises.
On Nov. 15, 2009, David E. Daniel was walking from the residence of his daughter and son-in-law and was attempting to cross the defendant's driveway when he tripped and fell, seriously injuring his right shoulder, as well as his right knee, right elbow and other parts of his body, according to a complaint filed Aug. 26 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Daniel claims Pathology Services Group allowed the condition of the sidewalk and driveway to fall into seriously disrepair to the point where it became a hazard to pedestrians.
The defendant had a duty to take reasonable steps in order to avoid risks of harm, injury and loss to patrons who came onto its premises, according to the suit.
Daniel claims the defendant caused his injuries and caused him to require extensive medical treatment, surgical repair and physical rehabilitation.
The defendant breached its duty to maintain its driveway in a condition free of hazards and defects, according to the suit.
Daniel is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Paul A. Ryker.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
