Woman Killed on Christian Festival Park Ride

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 7-Jan-2011

A woman attending a Christian festival in Oshkosk, WI, died recently after plunging about 45 feet from an amusement ride.

The incident occurred at the Lifest when the Air Glory ride -- a ride whose mechanism is similar to bungee-jumping - reportedly failed and the woman fell to the ground. Lifest is an annual Christian music festival that also features rides and sports.

Reports say two people went up in the ride; when the workers pulled the release apparently a snapping sound was heard. One person fell and the other remained swinging in the ride.

The woman who fell, whose name and age was not released by Oshkosk police, was pronounced dead at a local hospital several hours after the accident.

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.
