A 22-year-old woman is seeking $27 million from the City of Bellingham for falling at a park that caused her to be paralyzed in 2005. She was just 16 when the accident happened.
A Whatcom County Superior Court jury is now deliberating in the lawsuit.
She slipped on a wet spot on a trail near a swimming area at Whatcom Falls Park and fractured her spine. She is now in a wheelchair. It must be decided by jurors whether the city should be liable.
