MARSHALL - A Denton business is facing a lawsuit for more than $75,000 after a restroom stall door fell and broke a customer's toe.

Linda Clark filed suit against Affinity Holding Group Inc., doing business as Camping World RV Rental, on March 24 in the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division.

According to the lawsuit, Clark was injured on Nov. 4, 2009, while she was a customer on the premises owned by defendant Camping World. Clark states she entered the customers' restroom and attempted to hang her purse on the hanger on the back of the bathroom stall door, when the door to the stall fell to the floor hitting the big toe on her left foot.

The defendant is accused of failing to correct the condition and of negligence for failing to warn customers of the unreasonably dangerous condition presented by the bathroom stall.

The plaintiff is seeking damages for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, physical scarring and disfigurement, court costs and interest.

Clark is represented by Melissa Richards Smith of Gillam & Smith in Marshall. A jury trial is requested.

U.S. District Judge T. John Ward is assigned to the case.

Case No. 2:11-cv-00191
