A Chambersburg, Pa., couple is suing the manufacturer of a hospital bed for $59,500 after the woman was injured when the bed shocked her, according to a lawsuit filed in Washington County Circuit Court.
Tonya L. and Sheldon P. Richmond, of 7385 Talhelm Road, are suing Flex-A-Bed Inc., Flex-A-Bed of Georgia Inc. and Wonderbed Mfg. Corp. for the loss of work and companionship due to Tonya Richmond's injuries, according to the lawsuit.
Richmond was a caregiver for Hagerstown resident Edyth Young when the injury occurred on Oct. 20, 1994, said Richmond's Baltimore attorney, Franklin Freeman. The hospital bed belonged to Young, he said.
