Fifteen-Year-Old Girl Dies in Amusement Park Accident

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 21-Oct-2010

One 15-year-old girl died and two other people were hospitalized with severe injuries after an amusement park ride in Barcelona, Spain, broke in midair, reports say.

 

The accident occurred when the mechanical arm of "El Pendulo" broke and the seats carrying the teens toppled onto another ride located nearby, reports say.

 

Witnesses reportedly said that about three hours before the accident maintenance workers were called to the ride because it was making strange noises. Workers evidently examined and tested the ride for 10-15 minutes, then reopened it after they could not detect any problems. It was then that the ride malfunctioned. A young boy also suffered minor injuries, but walked away from the twisted metal on his own, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
