WILLIAMSON – A Baisden couple is suing the seller and manufacturer of their mobile home over allegations the home was damaged during transport and the company failed to repair the damage.

Terry Salmons and Carmella Salmons filed a complaint in Mingo Circuit Court against CMH of KY Inc., doing business as Oakwood Homes No. 1022 and Norman's Mobile Home Movers & Towing LLC alleging negligence, breach of contract, fraudulent inducement, breach of express warranties, breach of implied warranties, breach of duty of good faith and unfair or deceptive acts or practices.

The suit states that on Aug. 8, 2018, the plaintiffs purchased a manufactured home from Oakwood Homes in Kentucky and contracted it to deliver the home. The suit states Oakwood contracted Norman's Mobile Home Movers to transport the home.

On Aug. 15, 2018, the suit states Norman's crashed the mobile home into Horsepen Mountain, resulting in damages to home. The suit states the damages from the crash became apparent to the plaintiffs after their home was installed, but Oakwood Homes has failed to take responsibility to repair the damages.

The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Greg K. Smith of the Law Office of Greg K. Smith in Williamson.

The case has been assigned to Judge Miki J. Thompson.
