In two separate claims filed late last year, Geraldine Alexander and Carol Liu both alleged that they were severely injured after falling over crooked sidewalk slabs. Liu seeks $150,000 from the city for her injuries, including a broken ankle. Alexander is asking for $1.5 million, which she described as a "very conservative estimate" for what she deserves, although she did not specify her injuries. Both plaintiffs are being represented by attorneys in their claims against the city.
