RIPLEY – A Jackson County woman alleges that she was injured while shopping at a Dollar Tree store because of a damaged walkway.

Loleida Workman filed a complaint Aug. 1 in Jackson Circuit Court against Dollar Tree Stores Inc. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 14, she was shopping at the defendant's Charleston store and tripped and fell because of a hole in an aisle.

The plaintiff holds Dollar Tree Stores Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently created and allowed a dangerous condition to develop and failed to warn its patrons of the existence of such condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $75,000, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and expenses and such other relief that this court deems proper. She is represented by Robert B. Warner and Christopher Schumacher of Warner Law Offices PLLC in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Lora Dyer.
