A Wal-Mart in Charleston, West Virginia has asked that a personal injury lawsuit filed in Kanawha County, West Virginia be moved to a federal court.
The suit was originally filed on May 16, just over two years after the accident occurred, by Eugenia Comer after she was allegedly injured by a store employee who landed on her after falling off of a ladder.
According to Comer, while shopping at the Wal-Mart on May 19, 2006, she was near an employee who was working on a ladder. He shifted while on the ladder, fell, and struck Comer.
According to Comer, she sustained physical and mental pain, suffered from mental anguish and anxiety, and became disabled from the injuries she sustained. The complaint says that she is now required to take medicines and undergo treatments, examinations, and therapies.
