Quadriplegic files negligence suit against Perot Museum

Denton County, Texas resident Myung Oh filed a premises liability lawsuit against the Perot Museum of Nature and Science on Thursday, April 10 after a fall from the museum’s concrete stairs in 2013 made him a quadriplegic.

According to the lawsuit, Oh and his wife are claiming that the museum failed to ensure that the steps outside of the museum, where he fell, were safe for anyone visiting the museum, especially older adults and children. The lawsuit also states that it Oh incurred grave injuries to his neck, causing him to become quadriplegic and necessitate 24/7 care in a nursing home.

This is not the only case of an individual claiming to injure himself on the Perot Museum’s premises.

After the museum’s opening in December 2012, a man, who had lost his finger in a mishap at the Sports Hall exhibit, said he would sue the museum, but a lawsuit was never filed, making Oh’s filing the first lawsuit against the Perot Museum.
