A woman who claims she was injured during a staircase fall at Texarkana Country Club in January filed a lawsuit last week in Miller County.
The suit alleges Shumate suffered “severe personal injuries” which required medical treatment. With the help of Texarkana attorney Mark Burgess, Shumate filed a personal injury complaint Friday in Miller County Circuit Court.
Shumate is seeking to recover damages for her past and future medical expenses related to the injuries she allegedly suffered at the club Jan. 16. Shumate is also asking the court to award a judgment for past and future lost wages, loss of earning capacity, past and future mental anguish and past and future pain and suffering.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carlton Jones. Texarkana Country Club has not filed a response to Shumate’s complaint.
