Resident alleges facility operator's negligence caused injuries

By Philip Gonzales | Dec 13, 2018

CHARLESTON — A Charleston man is suing a St. Albans residential living facility operator, alleging negligence led to severe injuries to the plaintiff.

David Brandon Ball filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Dimas Charities Inc., alleging the residential living facility operator failed to maintain the bathroom and shower area in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 30, 2016, Ball was a resident at the defendant's facility in St. Albans when he slipped and fell in standing water in a dimly lit bathroom. The suit says Ball sustained severe and permanent injuries resulting in pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges Dimas Charities failed to install adequate drainage to prevent slipping hazards and failed to provide adequate lighting in the area.

Ball seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages with interest, court costs and all other just and proper relief. He is represented by attorneys J. Christopher Cormany of Cormany Law PLLC in Charleston, and by Kevin Paul Davis of Charleston.
