WHEELING — A woman is suing Wal-Mart Stores Inc., a retail store operator, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Victoria Schweizer filed a complaint on June 30 in Ohio Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. alleging that the retail store operator breached its duty to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 2, 2014, she was an invitee at a Walmart and used the restroom. The suit says that when she attempted to use the grab bar to lift herself from the toilet, it became detached from the wall and hit her head, causing her injuries and leading to medical expenses, pain and suffering. The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently allowed and maintained the dangerous condition to exist.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for all damages to which she may show herself justly entitled. She is represented by Gail W. Kahle of Law Office of Gail W. Kahle in Wheeling.
