LOGAN – An individual working as a contractor at the Southwestern Regional Jail alleges she was injured in a fall caused by shampoo left by inmates on the floor.

Sheila Harless filed a complaint on July 5 in Logan Circuit Court against West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority, doing business as Southwestern Regional Jail, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 8, 2015, she was on defendant's property to perform her duties with a third-party contractor when she slipped and fell from the slippery substances on the floor that were left by the inmates. As a result, plaintiff alleges she fell and suffered an injury to her shoulder.

The plaintiff holds West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain the facility in a clean, orderly and safe condition and failed to warn plaintiff of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for injuries and damages, plus costs of action and interest. She is represented by Donald C. Wandling of Wandling Law Office in Logan. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Joshua Butcher.
