CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County man and his wife are suing Advance Auto Parts for injuries sustained from a fall at its Cedar Grove store.
On Feb. 13, David W. Aldridge was on the defendant's premises and was shopping for merchandise when he encountered a foreign substance or a wet floor and was proceeding in a careful and prudent manner unaware of the hazardous condition of the floor when he slipped and fell, according to a complaint filed June 25 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Aldridge claims the defendant was negligent and careless by breaching its duty in permitting a hazardous condition to exist and/or failing to warn him of the hazard.
As a result of the defendant's negligence, carelessness and breach of duty, Aldridge sustained serious injuries to his body and mind and suffered loss of enjoyment of life and lost wages, according to the suit.
Aldridge claims he also incurred medical expenses in excess of $15,000 for care and treatment of his injuries.
Aldridge and his wife, Brandi Aldridge, are seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. They are being represented by Bruce L. Freeman.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
