Ky. woman sues Target for injuries

By Kyla Asbury | Jun 27, 2012

HUNTINGTON -- An Ashland, Ky., woman is suing Target Corporation after she fell and sustained injuries while at its Barboursville location.

On June 14, 2010, Jolinda Howard was at Target in Barboursville when she slipped and fell and injured her right leg, according to a complaint filed June 13 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Howard claims the defendant had a legal duty to keep and maintain its business premises in a reasonably safe condition for its business invitees.

In breach of its duties, the defendant negligently failed to inspect and/or maintain the floor of Target's premises in such a manner so as to constitute a dangerous and unsafe condition for the customary use of its business invitees, according to the suit.

Howard claims the defendant failed to warn her of the dangerous conditions at its Barboursville location.

The defendant's actions caused Howard severe and permanent injuries to her body and mind, according to the suit.

Howard is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by John F. Cyrus.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.

Cabell Circuit Court case number: 12-C-382
