FAYETTEVILLE – A Fayette County woman alleges she was injured because of ice on a hotel's premises.
Joanne Sorrell filed a complaint on Dec. 5 in the Fayette Circuit Court against Jay Enterprises Inc., doing business as Comfort Inn, alleging breach of duty of care.

She alleges she incurred medical expenses of more than $90,000. The plaintiff holds Jay Enterprises Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently maintained its premises and failed to provide a safe environment.
