Approximately six months before the accident, in early 2008, plaintiff became a support manager with Target. She wanted to become a supervisor.

As support manager, she was responsible for trouble shooting all departmental positions. She did computer work and generally worked from the middle afternoon until 11:00 p.m. when the store closed.

At the time of the accident, Ms. Anderson was earning $9.80 per hour. She wanted to enter the Assistant Manager Training Program. If she successfully completed that program, she testified that she would earn $14.00 per hour.

Universal admits liability.


Plaintiff and her passenger were transported by ambulance and taken to Sacramento Regional Medical Center. She broke her right ankle and doctors wanted to perform surgery on it. However, she knew she was allergic to certain metals and did not want any metal inserted into her foot. Doctors performed a test and determined that was allergic to Titanium. Therefore, rather than performing surgery, they put her foot in a cast. Sometimes she stills wear a brace on her ankle to give it support.

It has been more than five years since the accident, and the plaintiff has never gone back to work. Twice since the accident, she has undergone surgery, once on her right knee and once on her left. In all likelihood, the surgery on her right knee, performed in February of 2009 is related to this accident. It is the position of these defendants, however, that the left knee surgery performed in October of 2009 is not related to the accident. (See Part 3 of 7.)
