CHARLESTON - A Charleston woman says Family Dollar Corporation's premises were unsafe and caused her to sustain injuries.

On Oct. 21, Stephanie S. Minor was at the Family Dollar in Charleston when she fell and became injured, according to a complaint filed Aug. 21 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Minor claims the defendant negligently maintained its store.

The plaintiff "fell and became injured due to defendant's negligent maintenance and upkeep of its facility and its failure to maintain a safe environment for its customers," the complaint states.

Minor claims Family Dollar had a duty to maintain a safe environment for its customers and failed to do so.

As a result of the defendant's negligent and careless conduct, Minor sustained serious injury to her mind and body, according to the suit.

Minor claims she suffered damages, including permanent physical injury; medical expenses; mental anguish; pain and suffering; annoyance and inconvenience; and loss of enjoyment of life.

Minor 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 Paul Zakaib Jr.
