Trip Over Rug Could Cost Kirkland's

Comments Off

This week a personal injury lawsuit was filed against the popular home decor store Kirkland’s. The suit alleges that the store was negligent in allowing a rug to remain in lying in a walkway, which ultimately caused Waneta Clark to trip and injure herself.

The lawsuit claims that Clark suffered serious injuries resulting from the fall and that she is still undergoing medical treatment almost two years after the event. The plaintiff’s attorney claims that defendant should have been aware of the dangerous nature of the situation and the failure to remedy the condition constitutes negligence.

In addition to medical expenses and exemplary damages, Clark is suing for past and future mental anguish, impairment, lost wages and disfigurement.
