HUNTINGTON — Two Huntington homeowners are suing a Putnam County home improvement contracting company, alleging conversion, loss of consortium and negligence in injuries to the one of the plaintiffs.
Donald Triplett and Janet Triplett filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Home Project Pros LLC and Darren G. McComas, alleging they knowingly and intentionally wrongfully exerted control over the plaintiffs' property without consent.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 26, 2017, the Tripletts' property, 4759 Prices Creek Drive, Scott Depot, was entered by the defendants' employees and without permission. The suit says the employees took possession of numerous pieces of personal property belonging to the Tripletts while constructing a handicap ramp on the property.
The lawsuit also states the defendants destroyed a curio cabinet, removed a deck from the home without instructions, causing a tripping hazard to Janet Tripplet. She fell, the suit says, resulting in physical injury that led to medical treatment. Donald Triplett alleges he experienced loss of consortium.
The plaintiffs allege Home Project Pros and McComas failed to supervise their employees during the course of the project at the Triplett home and failed to restore, repair or replace either the deck or the curio cabinet.
The Tripletts seek trial by jury, punitive damages, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs, attorney fees, and any other just and appropriate relief. They are represented by attorney B. Luke Styer of Huntington.
