Man blames county commission for fall on Logan courthouse steps

By Philip Gonzales | Sep 2, 2016

LOGAN — A man is suing the Logan County Commission, a public corporation, citing alleged failure to warn and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

Jack Waters filed a complaint on Aug. 17 in Logan Circuit Court against tjhe defendant, alleging failure to maintain the concrete steps on its premises.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in August 18, 2014, while he was exiting the Logan County Courthouse, he slipped and fell on the steps causing him to sustain injuries to his left hip, elbow, arm and shoulder. He was caused to incur medical expenses in the approximate amount of $4,000. The plaintiff holds The Logan County Commission responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain said steps in a non-slippery condition and failed to warn or place a notice that the steps were dangerous.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in the amount of $20,000 to compensate his damages, pre-judgment interest, and such other relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by Mark Hobbs of Mark Hobbs Law Offices in Chapmanville.
