Kmart Automatic Door Fractures Woman’s Ribs

Automatic doors in one West Virginia Kmart went haywire, attacking a customer.

“Margaret Chrislip was visiting the store Feb. 23, 2006, when the automatic doors she was going through malfunctioned, struck her and caused her to fall.” The door fractured her ribs, among other things. She’s suing for “compensatory damages from Kmart and Boley as well as pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and further and general relief.”
