Resident wants city to pay $3,000 for sidewalk injury

A Huntington Beach woman wants $3,000 after she tripped over a section of uneven sidewalk.

Alysia Labonte, 55 , filed a claim with the city Dec. 20 alleging it is responsible for her fall, according to the public documents.

Labonte's foot caught on a portion of uplifted sidewalk on Laurelhurst Street at about 6:30 p.m. Sept. 1, according to the claim.

She broke her elbow, sprained her wrist and bruised her shoulder, knees and hands, according to the claim. Labonte has no health insurance, according to the claim.

Labonte is holding the city responsible for her injuries because it failed to maintain a safe sidewalk, according to the claim.
