Many people in Ohio greatly enjoy outdoor festivities, such as carnivals, fairs and picnics. These special events often feature rides and other attractions, including trampolines or bungee jumping, for the amusement of attendees. Unfortunately, these attractions occasionally lead to serious injuries suffered by unsuspecting riders.
Many people expect that when they attend an event, both the event promoter and operator of the attraction have taken steps to ensure safety and address any hazardous conditions. There are some instances, however, in which this is not the case. Either negligence or inadequate training of attraction operators can contribute to dangerous conditions that result in injury.
Recently, news reports chronicled the situation faced by a man who was injured while participating in a bungee jumping attraction at a company picnic. The result was serious, and the gentleman not only endured a great deal of pain and suffering but also continues to experience aftereffects from his injury. Eventually, the parties involved settled for a significant sum of money to help compensate the plaintiff for the numerous losses he suffered as a result of the accident.
Individuals who have experienced similar injuries may benefit from consulting with an experienced property liability attorney. A lawyer may be able to review the client's case and medical records in order to determine whether it is a good idea to take legal action against the property owner or attraction operator. In some cases, the attorney may be able to assist the client in getting the financial compensation necessary to fund appropriate medical care and resume living their life.
