    J.B. was 18-months old when visiting the Comerica Bank building in Waxahachie, Texas, with family members. While the family was standing on the second-floor balcony of the building, JB lost her balance and slipped through the gap in stair's railings. Her family tried to catch her but only caught her foot, and her shoe came off in their hands as JB fell 15 feet to the brick floor below, landing headfirst. JB was life-flighted to the hospital and diagnosed with a fractured skull and multiple bleeds on her brain. She suffers from a traumatic brain injury and will require lifelong monitoring and care. The gap in the stair railing measured in excess of 12", more than three times the amount allowed under the requisite building codes.
