Barboursville Kroger shopper alleges liquid on floor caused fall

By Philip Gonzales | Jan 23, 2018


HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County woman alleges she was injured while shopping at the Kroger in Barboursville because of liquid on the floor.

Carol Rice filed a complaint on Dec. 20, 2017, in Cabell Circuit Court against Kroger Limited Partnership alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 29, 2015, she was injured at defendant's Kroger store located at 6360 US Route 60 East in Barboursville when she slipped and fell due to a liquid on the floor. She alleges she suffered emotional distress and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff holds Kroger Limited Partnership I responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn of the known unsafe conditions and failed to adhere to an acceptable standard of care.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and all other relief as the court may deem appropriate. She is represented by Timothy F. Lupardus of Lupardus Law Office in Pineville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Gregory Howard Jr.
