HUNTINGTON -- A woman is suing PSG & R Industries, Inc., after her daughter fell from one floor of a Huntington parking garage to the floor below, which caused her death.

Patricia Dawn King entered into an agreement with the defendant to rent one or more parking spaces at its Huntington parking garage, according to a complaint filed Oct. 9 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Sandra Kay King, Patricia King’s mother, claims that on March 23, her daughter rightfully entered the parking garage, exited her vehicle and fell through an opening in the floor and was injured and died.

As a result of the defendant’s negligent, careless, wrongful and unlawful conduct, Patricia King was caused to fall from the fourth floor of the Central Huntington Garage to its third floor and was subsequently killed as a result of the injuries she sustained from the fall, according to the suit.

Sandra King claims the defendant was negligent in the maintenance of the facility in its dangerous and hazardous condition and its failure to warn Patricia King of the dangerous and hazardous condition.

Patricia King was injured and suffered physical and emotional pain and suffering and died, according to the suit, and her estate and beneficiaries of her estate suffered severe and great sorrows, mental anguish, solace, society, companionship, comfort, guidance, kindly offices and advice of the decedent; loss of income of the decedent, services, protection, care and assistance provided by the decedent; expenses for the care, treatment and hospitalization of the decedent; reasonable funeral expenses; and all damages recoverable under West Virginia code.

Sandra King is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest.

She is being represented by Marvin W. Masters and Kelly Elswick Hall.

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

Cabell Circuit Court case number: 12-C-670
