WINFIELD – A woman is suing Tidewater Grill after she claims she slipped and fell on its premises and became injured.
Charleston Town Center Company was also named as a defendant in the suit.
Real Seafood Company of Charleston is doing business as Tidewater Grill Restaurant.
On Aug. 10, 2015, Leah Michelle Shamblin was walking on common property on the premises owned and managed by the defendants, according to a complaint filed July 26 in Putnam Circuit Court.
Shamblin claims at the time, the floor in the area had not been properly cleaned and had the tendency to be slippery. She claims the area was wet with an unknown substance, which caused her to slip and fall.
The plaintiff sustained severe injuries from the slip and fall, according to the suit.
Shamblin claims there is evidence that the substance was seen on the floor with no attempt by staff to clean it up.
Solely as a result of the failure of the defendants to properly clean all common areas of the unknown substance, Shamblin sustained serious and severe injuries to her person, including injuries to her right leg, hip and lower back, according to the suit.
Shamblin claims she incurred medical expenses and lost wages.
The defendants were negligent in failing to clean up the unknown substance, according to the suit.
Shamblin is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by James B. Atkins of Atkins & Ogle Law Offices.
The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Philip Stowers.
