CHARLESTON – A Charleston man alleges he was injured after slipping on pesticide at a hospital's property.

James Adkins filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Charleston Area Medical Center Inc. alleging negligence.

He alleges in his complaint that the area where he slipped had been sprayed for a wasp/hornet's nest and that Charleston Medical should have known of the hazardous area. He alleges the defendant is responsible for its employees' actions.

Adkins seeks special and general damages, a trial by jury, interest and all other proper relief. He is represented by Kevin Davis in Charleston.
