Two cities in West Virginia have been sued in Slip and Fall lawsuits for incidents that happened on city property. The first lawsuit involves the city of Ronceverte and the city’s pool. A couple rented the pool for a party in 2005. The wife allegedly fell and is seeking damages for her medical bills.
The suit claims Mary Ralston “slipped and fell” while using the bathhouse and picnic areas of the pool. The suit claims the city was negligent by not keeping the area dry and clean and failed to provide handrails and “warn approaching traffic of areas that may be slippery and provide a non-skid surfaces” in the area.
The second lawsuit is against the city of Lewisburg for a fall at a city park. A woman was attending a game and allegedly fell on a set of bleachers. She is seeking repayment for her medical bills.
