CHARLESTON — A customer is suing a retail store operator, citing alleged negligence and premises liability.
Stacy Marie Harrison filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores East LP alleging that it failed to provide a safe place for its customers to shop.
According to the complaint, Harrison alleges that on Nov. 26, 2016, she was a customer at the defendant's store in Nitro when she fell due to a foreign substance on the floor. She suffered injuries resulting in pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, loss of earning capacity and loss of household service. The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores East LP responsible because it allegedly negligently permitted the accumulation of a foreign substance on the floor and failed to give adequate warning of the existing danger.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, costs and such other just and proper relief. She is represented by Thomas H. Peyton of Peyton Law Firm PLLC in Nitro.
