Local Amusement Park Settled Three Personal Injury Lawsuits Before Opening This Year

Now that summer is here, we’re sure to see news articles related to amusement park injuries. Recently, Six Flags St. Louis settled three personal injury cases prior to their opening in 2018.

Two of the three cases involved the park’s Boomerang roller coaster, and the incidents happened in 2016. The ride got stuck in the middle, causing injuries to some teenagers who were on it at the time. The third case involved a falling tree branch that was located near the Old Chicago Train Station in the park. That case resulted in a settlement of $10,000.

Missouri laws are very strict about injuries that take place on amusement park rides. The State Fire Marshall must be contacted immediately, and the ride cannot be operated until it is deemed to be safe for the public to use.

If you’re planning on going to Six Flags St. Louis this summer, please use extreme caution. If you or a loved one is injured, please be aware that you have rights. You should contact your St. Louis personal injury attorneys immediately.

St. Louis personal injury attorneys understand what the law says about your situation and what you’re entitled to. You’ll want their representation if you decide to go forward with a claim. You deserve to be compensated, and the right experienced attorney will fight hard on your behalf.
