Lawsuit: ‘Pipe came loose … struck plaintiff’May 24th, 2007 by josh farley
A Kitsap County couple is suing Home Depot over an incident in October 2005 in which a woman was perusing an isle at the Silverdale store and a pipe fell from a shelf and struck her in the head, according to court documents.
The woman was at the store the afternoon of October 25, 2005, with her then 3-year-old daughter. She was standing in the middle of the “fencing” isle, “looking straight ahead,” when “a 7 foot piece of galvanized pipe came loose from the shelf and struck Plaintiff in the head,” court documents filed May 18 say.
The couple is seeking damages from the store, including for the health care of the “severe physical and mental pain, suffering and humiliation, both past and future,” and for the “loss of capacity and ability to enjoy life, the lawsuit says.
