Woman sues First Community Bank after tripping on mat

By Kristine Gonzales-Abella | Mar 5, 2019

PRINCETON — A woman is suing First Community Bank, citing alleged negligence and premises liability as the cause for her fall on the premises.

Shelley Cutlip filed her complaint in Mercer Circuit Court, alleging that the bank breached its duty to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 5, 2018 she was entering the defendant's premises at 1 Stafford Drive in Princeton when she tripped over a mat and fell to the floor. Cutlip's suit states that she sustained severe injuries and incurred medical expenses in excess of $14,990.36.

The plaintiff holds First Community Bank responsible because the defendant allegedly wrongfully placed an unsecured mat in a high-traffic area and negligently allowed the mat to flip upward, causing an unsafe and dangerous tripping hazard. Cutlip requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, with interest and costs. She is represented by Charles M. Love IV of The Love Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
