Survivors of Segway Accident Sue City
The recently-filed lawsuit was based on the death of San Diego resident Jeff Hassett. Hassett was riding his motorized Segway vehicle on a sidewalk near the Old Town Transit Center on March 1, 2016, when he hit a stub of concrete that was sticking up three to four inches from the sidewalk. Hassett suffered broken ribs, damage to his internal defibrillator, and an injured toe. When doctors were forced to amputate the injured toe, Hassett incurred an infection. He then suffered cardiac complications and ultimately succumbed to his injuries on May 13, 2016.
