HUNTINGTON — A Lincoln County woman is suing Sears, alleging negligence led to injuries to the plaintiff.
Dawn Conner filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Sears Roebuck and Co., Sears Holding Corporation, et al, alleging failure to maintain their department store premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 2, 2016, Conner was a customer at the Sears retail store in Huntington Mall in Barboursville when she slipped on leaking water on the walkway. The suit says Conner sustained serious injuries, resulting in pain and suffering, medical and hospital expenses, emotional trauma and lost wages.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to remediate the water leak from the restroom, failed to keep the floor clean and dry and failed to provide adequate warning of the existing danger.
Conner seeks trial by jury, judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, sufficient to compensate for her injuries, damages, plus costs, interest and attorney fees. She is represented by attorneys Matthew P. Stapleton and Scott G. Stapleton of Stapleton Law Offices in Huntington.
