TWO GIRLS HURT IN CARNIVAL RIDE IN HINKLEY
M v Magel's Carnival-Midway
Case: Personal Injury
M and her cousin looked forward to the carnival coming to Hinkley each year.
The Zipper ride was one of their favorites.A carnival employee is responsible for securing the door on the ride before the ride begins. The passengers have no control over the exterior lock.
The carnival employee neglected to put the pin in the door and began the ride.
M and her cousin fell out of the ride when the Zipper door opened landing on the ground sustaining severe injuries.
These injuries included severe head trauma with brain injury, fractured lumbar vertebrae, numerous cuts and bruises. We negotiated a settlement with the insurance carrier for all parties involved.
It is believed to be one of the largest monetary settlements for amusement park negligence in Minnesota.
