A shopper has filed a lawsuit stating that she suffered severe mental anguish and injury after being bitten by a bat at a Home Depot in Longview.
The accident happened in January of 2013 while the woman was shopping at a Home Depot store. The woman stated that she was bitten by a bat after she picked up a cinder block from an in-store display. According to the lawsuit, there have been previous infestations of bats and other wild animals at the Home Depot store.
Home Depot is being sued under premises liability law for failing to ensure the safety of their store for customers. The woman is seeking an award of damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, physical impairment, interest and court costs.
Home Depot is required by law to ensure that their properties are safe for their employees, customers or guests. Premises liability law holds property owners responsible when someone else is injured on their property. If hazardous conditions result in personal injury, then property owners can be held liable for their negligence under premises liability law.
