FAIRFIELD — The lawsuit filed by a 78-year-old woman who said she tripped on a steel utility box at Dixon High School while attending her granddaughter’s graduation and suffered two fractured wrists as well as a broken nose returns Thursday to Solano County Superior Court.
The premises liability lawsuit filed against the Dixon School District by Elizabeth Rosario in 2012 followed the June 8, 2011, high school graduation that took place at the school’s football field.
Rosario caught her shoe on the raised edge of the steel cover when walking back from the event, according to the lawsuit. She tried to catch herself as she fell, the suit states.
The half-inch of space between the cover and asphalt surface created the optical illusion of an even surface, according to the suit. Construction of Dixon High School was completed in 2007, the suit adds.
