Founding Partner Scott Murray and Paralegal Cecilia Del Aguila recently secured a settlement on behalf of a 12-year-old boy who fractured his ankle in multiple places due to a water park employee failing to follow a simple safety protocol.
An employee released the young boy from a water slide before the pathway was cleared causing him to slam into the back of another patron at a high rate of speed. Our client was taken by ambulance to a hospital where he underwent major surgery. He spent weeks in a wheelchair, with a full leg cast. Not to mention, he missed almost a month of school.
Our client spent over six (6) months in physical therapy and could not bear any weight on his leg for weeks. He suffered a complex fracture that required a long recovery process.
The team at Murray Guari spent months negotiating with the waterpark’s insurance company before reaching a fair settlement for our client.
Thankfully, our client has made a near full recovery and is back being a typical teenage boy!
Businesses, like this waterpark, owe a duty to exercise a reasonable standard of care to prevent foreseeable risks, like this one with our client. Our goal is always to fight for fair compensation on behalf of our clients, but also to prevent others from suffering the same fate. By holding businesses accountable for negligent actions, we encourage a safer community for everyone.
When you or a loved one are injured due to the fault of another, you need attorneys who have the knowledge and skillset to hold negligent parties liable.
