Jamie Foxx
's sidewalk is a death trap in the making -- at least according to a woman who says she took a nasty spill on Jamie's pavement ... and it's all the actor's fault. 

A woman named Catherine Jones filed the lawsuit against Jamie in L.A. County Superior Court -- claiming she attended a party at his house last year ... and fell head over heels on the sidewalk, seriously injuring herself.

Catherine says the sidewalk was negligently maintained by Foxx ... and that's the reason she busted her ass.

She's now suing for hospital expenses and other damages -- a sum totaling at least $10,000.

Calls to Jamie's camp were not returned.

Truth    

SEE, THIS IS PARTLY THE RESULT OF NOT HAVING UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE ---> YOU GET ALL THESE STUPID ASS LAWSUITS. IF UHC EXISTED IN THE STATES, THE BITCH WOULD HAVE MOST IF NOT ALL OF HER EXPENSES COVERED AND JAMIE FOXX WOULDNT HAVE THIS ANNOYANCE ON HIS FRONT LAWN. THE MOST THE BITCH COULD GET IS A FEW HUNDRED BUXX FOR TIME AND LOST WAGES. SINCE SHE WAS PARTYING ON A F*CKING WEEKEND WHICH WOULD AMOUNT TO SQUAT. RESULT? LAWYERS MAKING ALL THE PAPER CAUSE OF INEPT GOVT POLICY. #TRUTH!!

She's suing because she was too stupid to notice the sidewalk so she's suing. Only in America.

You'll have to excuse me if I refuse to believe a mufti-million dollar mansion has crumbling cement like a brownstone in Harlem. More likely she got drunk or high out of her mind and accidentally made a right turn at Saturn and tripped over the rings because she thought she was stepping onto Mars.

"Wah, I've fallen and I can't get up now give me money!!11!1!!!!!11!1"

She probably was drunk and being clumsy.

I hope the judge laughs at her and throws the lawsuit back in her face.

I have fallen and tripped at places on a few occasions. Not one of them times did I say " I wonder how much money I can get do this" I was always more concerned about if anyone seen it happen. Just another Ridiculous lawsuit to clog up court system!

Doesn't the sidewalk belong to city? I think she is sueing the wrong person.

well Duh, that is what homeowners insurance is for. It covers liabilities such as this one. Fox has nothing to worry about. If he has no insurance pkg, then he may have to pay up.

Last year she seriously injured herself. lol lol Serious injuries wouldn't cost less than $10K, they would cost more like $25K & up. She made it into the party crossing the sidewalk, so it's her own problem she couldn't cross it while leaving especially with some booze in her.
