CHARLESTON – The estate of a woman is suing Charleston Sleep Solutions for injuries sustained on its premises that led to her death.
Sleep Medicine WV PLLC is doing business as Charleston Sleep Solutions. Dr. Lo’ay M. Al-Asadi was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On Dec. 1, 2013, Louise Chaffin was on the premises of Charleston Sleep Solutions and fell and was injured, according to a complaint filed Nov. 30 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Chaffin’s estate claims the defendants’ negligence caused Chaffin to fall, become injured and ultimately die.
The defendants owed a duty to keep its patrons safe while occupying the premises and the defendants breached that duty, according to the suit.
Chaffin’s estate claims the defendants breached their duty by leaving cords or wires tangled in walking paths and by failing to have the premises properly lighted and staffed.
By leaving cords or wires tangled in the walking path and/or by failing to have the premises properly lighted and staffed, the defendants are liable to the plaintiff’s estate under the doctrine of premises liability, according to the suit.
Chaffin’s estate claims the defendants were negligent and caused Chaffin to suffer harm and, ultimately, her death.
The estate is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. It is being represented by D. Adrian Hoosier II of the Hoosier Law Firm PLLC.
The case is assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
