Man seeks damages from Huntington after falling on sidewalk

By Lhalie Castillo | Mar 13, 2018

HUNTINGTON – A man alleges the condition of a sidewalk in Huntington caused him to fall and is seeking damages.

Don Handley Jr., as administrator of the estate of Don Handley Sr., filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against the city of Huntington alleging that the city violated its duty to use reasonable care.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 13, 2013, he was walking on the sidewalk maintained by defendant when he tripped over a raised bolt and fell. The suit states the plaintiff sustained injuries that resulted in pain and suffering, lost wages and earning capacity and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff holds the city of Huntington responsible because the defendant allegedly allowed the condition in the sidewalk to exist without warning the plaintiff or others.

The plaintiff seeks all damages in an amount that will sufficiently and fully compensate him for his injuries, plus interest and costs. He is represented by Scott G. Stapleton of Stapleton Law Offices in Huntington. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Gregory L. Howard Jr.
