Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Filed By Woman Injured After Falling Branch In San Diego


injured after falling branchA 31-year-old woman filed a lawsuit after being seriously injured when a eucalyptus branch fell on her while she was walking on a city sidewalk near Mission Bay in 2013.

The woman was seeking a $25 million in damages claiming the walking path was in dangerous condition and the city should be responsible.

According to reports, the woman sustained a damaged spine, a broken leg, and fractured five bones in her face.

Unfortunately, the judge dismissed the lawsuit after the city claimed they had no liability due to statutory immunity.

This incident sparked encouragement for city officials to open up spaces like parks and trails to the public.
