CHARLESTON -- An Eskdale woman is suing Big Lots after she fell and became injured at one of its stores.
On Aug. 3, 2010, Tina M. Browning was at Big Lots when she fell and became injured due to the defendant's negligent maintenance and upkeep of its facility and its failure to maintain a safe environment for customers, according to a complaint filed Jan. 23 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Browning claims Big Lots had a duty to maintain a safe environment for its customers and failed to do so.
Big Lots caused Browning to suffer damages,including permanent physical injury, medical expenses, mental anguish, and pain and suffering, according to the suit.
Browning is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by G. Patrick Jacobs.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.
