CHARLESTON - A St. Albans woman is suing the Kroger Co. for injuries she allegedly sustained in a fall.

Kroger Limited Partnership I and KRCP Inc. were also named as defendants in the suit.

On Dec. 8, 2011, Betty Coleman was an invitee of Kroger's grocery store in St. Albans when she slipped and fell, according to a complaint filed May 2 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Coleman claims Kroger had a duty to provide a safe premises for invitees and failed to take reasonable actions to maintain safe premises for invitees.

The defendants allowed the area to become unsafe and dangerous; failed to inspect the premises for unsafe and dangerous conditions; failed to warn its invitees about the unsafe and dangerous condition; and failed to keep and maintain its premises in a safe condition, according to the suit.

Coleman claims she was injured and her injuries are permanent and lasting in nature and have caused her to incur medical expenses.

The defendants' actions caused Coleman to incur medical and medically-related expenses and have caused her to suffer great pain of body and mind; loss of enjoyment of life; and other impairments and disabilities, according to the suit.

Coleman is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by G. Patrick Jacobs of the Law Office of G. Patrick Jacobs.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.
