CHARLESTON – A Poca woman is suing King's Way Christian Church Inc. after she claims she was injured on the job.
Brittany Crary was an employee if King's Way, which is a daycare center for infants, toddlers and young children, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Circuit Court.
On June 7, 2013, at approximately 5 p.m., Crary was helping a mother with her children, who were ages 6 weeks and 2 years, and was attempting to hand the toddler across the metal gate to the waiting mother when her leg touched the metal gate and it gave way, causing her to fall to the ground and become injured.
Crary claims the defendant was negligent in not properly installing, maintaining or educating its personnel in proper operation of the gate.
The defendant breached its implied warranty of safe employment premises in that the gate was in fact defective and this failure caused Crary's injuries, according to the suit.
Crary claims King's Way breached its contract of employment with her by not providing her with a safe workplace.
Crary is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Larry G. Kopelman.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
