He picked her up and carried her out to safety. Unfortunately, in his haste Bubba was not careful. Ruby’s ankle struck a doorway and was broken in several places. This required extensive surgery, so that Ruby was in the hospital for several weeks. On July 1, 1993, Fireman Bubba went to visit her in the hospital. While he was talking to her, he accidentally bumped the intravenous needle in her hand, causing her hand to bleed. Infection subsequently developed. The statute of limitations for acts of negligence is two years. On June 18, 1995, Ruby files suit against both the city fire department, for injury to her ankle, and Fireman Bubba, for injury to her ankle and for causing the infection in her hand.

The sovereign immunity defense would likely relieve the city of liability for Ruby’s broken ankle since the provision of fire protection is governmental in nature. b.
