Woman alleges homeowners association negligent after she fell on wooden walkway

By Philip Gonzales | Oct 14, 2016

WINFIELD — A woman has filed suit against her homeowners association for alleged failure to warn after insufficient measures were taken to prevent an injury.

Jeanette Oxley filed a complaint July 19 in Putnam County Circuit Court against Oakbridge Condominium Owners Association Inc. and Oakbridge Townhomes Owners Association Inc., alleging they breached their duty to protect its residents.

According to the complaint, on July 22, 2014, Oxley was walking on the wooden walkway of the defendants' premises when her crutch slipped through a board and she fell, causing her to sustain severe injuries. The suit says Oxley suffered physical and mental pain, emotional distress, anxiety, annoyance, inconvenience, medical expenses and diminution of her ability to enjoy life. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, failed to repair or replace the defective wooden board and failed to take any action to prevent an accident.

Oxley seeks trial by jury, judgment in an amount to fully compensate her injuries and damages and all other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorneys Shawn R. Romano and Miles B. Berger of Romano & Associates PLLC in Charleston.
