Barragan v. County of Los Angeles, B217398

In quadriplegic plaintiff's suit against the County of Los Angeles under the Tort Claims Act, arising from the allegedly dangerous condition of a road where her single-car accident occurred, trial court's denial of plaintiff's relief from the TCA filing requirements is reversed as the rule mandating an injured party attempt to obtain counsel within six months in order to establish excusable neglect is not absolute, and may instead, be overcome by evidence of disability.
