CHARLESTON — A Charleston woman is suing Piggly Wiggly, alleging negligence caused injuries to the plaintiff.
Martha Quigley filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Piggly Wiggly, alleging the supermarket failed to follow applicable safety guidelines and regulations.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 13, Quigley was at the PIggly Wiggly supermarket, 5003 MacCorkle Ave. SE in Charleston, when she slipped and fell while walking down the aisle to the checkout area due to a liquid substance on the floor.
As a result of the incident, the suit says, Quigley suffered injuries to her lower back, arm, neck and head that required long-term medical treatment. The suit says she also sustained permanent psychological and emotional injuries.
The plaintiff alleges Piggly Wiggly failed to provide a safe and suitable environment for its customers, and failed to warn customers such as Quigley of the hazardous condition of its establishment.
Quigley seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages, attorney fees, court costs and all just relief. She is represented by attorney Michael M. Cary of Cary Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
