RIPLEY — A Point Pleasant customer is suing a Ripley store, alleging negligence caused her to fall in the parking lot.

Jennifer Newell filed a complaint in Jackson Circuit Court against PARCS Superstore Inc., alleging the equipment distributor negligently maintained its business premises.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 24, 2017, Newell was walking in the parking lot at the PARCS Superstore in Ripley when she fell into an open grate. Newell says she  suffered injuries to both knees and right shoulder and a fracture to the right wrist. 

The plaintiff alleges PARCS Superstore failed to exercise reasonable care to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition and failed to give adequate warning of the existing danger.

Newell seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages, with interest, court costs, attorney fees and all other just and proper relief. She is represented by attorney Matthew L. Clark of Kayser Layne & Clark PLLC in Point Pleasant.
