On October 22, 2015, the city of Mercer Island, Washington came to an out-of-court settlement with plaintiff Susan Camicia stemming from injuries she sustained while cycling on a city trail in 2006. Camicia was traveling on the trail in Mercer Island when she collided with a wooden bollard while attempting to avoid construction fencing which extended onto the trail. As a result of the accident, Camicia was rendered paralyzed.

Mercer Island attempted to argue immunity in the case because the trail was to be considered a park, however the plaintiff argued the trail was a travel corridor which would negate any immunity. The case was litigated extensively, including a decision by the Washington State Supreme Court not to grant summary judgment in favor of Mercer Island.

The case is: Camicia v. Howard S. Wright Construction Co. & City of Mercer Island
