BECKLEY – A Beckley woman alleges she was injured at a college in Raleigh County because of poor lighting in a walking area.
Angela Dews filed a complaint Oct. 20 in Raleigh Circuit Court against New River Community and Technical College and its president/CEO Dr. L. Marshall Washington alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 10, 2015, she was a business invitee at defendants' premises when she fell while walking on a poorly lit sidewalk. She alleges she sustained severe and permanent injuries in and about her body resulting in medical related expenses, disabilities and pain and suffering.
