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.

League City couple sues McDonalds for personal injury

League City resident Beth Garcia, along with her spouse, Michael, filed a personal injury lawsuit on September 4 in Galveston County District Court against Kacoms Communications Inc. and McDonald’s Corp. The lawsuit is based on a fall that occurred at a local McDonalds that allegedly required her to undergo surgery.

According to court documents, Beth Garcia was dining at the restaurant on Sept. 23, 2011 when “she slipped and fell in the dining room of the store next to the drink and condiment dispensing station” because of “liquid and other material that was left on the floor.”

The fall made Beth Garcia strike the door jamb near the playpen, necessitating a call to 911, Garcias said. League City emergency medical personnel took her to the nearby Clear Lake Regional Hospital, where she was found to have fractured her right humerus and dislocated her right shoulder.
