HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County woman who tripped and fractured her hip while picking up a prescription at a pharmacy alleges the business failed to maintain the premises.
Margie Browning filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Fruth Pharmacy Inc. alleging premises liability.
According to her complaint, Browning was at Fruth Pharmacy on Sept. 28, 2017, on Route 60 in Cabell County to pick up a prescription when she tripped over a metal trim on a raised carpet area and fractured her hip. She alleges the transition between the carpet area and tile was greater than a half an inch and had been damaged due to wear and tear.
Browning seeks a trial by jury and all other general relief the court deems just. She is represented by Chad Hatcher of The Hatcher Law Office in Huntington.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Christopher D. Chiles.
