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.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 27, 2016, she sustained serious and permanent injuries after she slipped and fell on ice at the defendant's premises. 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.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages in such amount as justified by evidence. She is represented by Greg A. Hewitt of Hewitt & Salvatore in Fayetteville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul M. Blake Jr.
