Court Reviews Whether Bank Created or Maintained a Dangerous Condition that Led to Plaintiff's Fall into Curbside Shrubbery

KATHY YOUNG ET AL. v. FIRST BANK OF TENNESSEE (Tenn. Ct. App. January 31, 2011)

Kathy Young ("the plaintiff") stepped backward onto an elevated curb as she opened the driver's door of her vehicle to leave the parking lot of First Bank of Tennessee. She was injured when she tripped over the curb and fell into the shrubbery that bordered the parking lot. She and her husband filed this action alleging that First Bank was negligent in creating or maintaining a dangerous condition. First Bank filed a motion for summary judgment which the trial court granted. The plaintiff appeals. We affirm.
