A Trip (not Slip) and Fall Print
Wednesday, January 23 2013

A Texas woman is suing her city after allegedly tripping over a loose board on a suspension bridge in the local park.

Port Arthur (TX) resident Pati Paulino was walking her dog across a suspended bridge when a floor board came loose and caused her to fall. Two years after the alleged accident, Paulino is suing the city for failing to inspect and maintain Herman Park and warn visitors of the hazard.

Paulino's lawsuit fails to identify the nature or extent of her injuries, but does state that she seeks exemplary damages on the grounds that the city acted in malice. Paulino seeks an unspecified amount of damages for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

"She proceed (sic) to walk across a suspended bridge when one of the floor boards came lose (sic), causing her to fall," the suit states. "Due to defendant's negligence serious injury resulted."
