CHARLESTON – An Elkview senior citizen is suing a Charleston paving company for allegedly leaving uneven spots in her driveway that caused her to fall and break her nose.
Joy Holbert filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Reeds Paving Co. and Sherry Reed alleging negligence.
The suit states that the plaintiff paid Reeds Paving to pave her driveway on July 18, 2017. The plaintiff's driveway was paved but the suit states the defendant left tripping hazards.
On July 30, 2017, the suit states while the plaintiff was walking on her driveway, she tripped on the uneven pavement and sustained a broken nose. The plaintiff alleges the defendants owed a duty of care to do their job in a manner that would not put her at risk of falling.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Kevin P. Davis in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Tera Salango.
