HUNTINGTON — A Huntington woman is suing Wal-Mart, alleging negligence in failing to keep a store premises safe.
Pamela L. Bailey filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores East, LP, doing business as Wal-Mart Supercenter, and store manager Tennyson Thornberry, alleging the defendants exposed business invitees to danger.
According to the complaint, June 15, 2016, Bailey was a business invitee at a Wal-Mart in Huntington. The suit says Bailey slipped and fell hard, sustaining severe and permanent injuries. Her fall, the suit alleges, was due to an unseen liquid that came from a dog shampoo.
The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart Supercenter and Thornberry failed to remove the hazardous condition and failed to warn invitees of the slippery floor.
Bailey seeks trial by jury, plus compensation that will fully and fairly compensate her for the injuries and damages. She is represented by attorney L. Timothy DiPiero of Ditrapano, Barrett, DiPiero, McGinley & Simmons, PLLC in Charleston.
