When a day at the amusement park turned into a nightmare, the victim of a serious injury turned to our firm for help.While coming down a water slide at a New York amusement park, our client was seriously injured, suffering a badly fractured ankle which required extensive surgery.
The law in New York, known as Primary Assumption of the Risk, generally serves as a bar to lawsuits or claims for injuries arising out of sporting or recreational activities. Our firm successfully argued that the park operator unreasonably increased the risks associated with the water slide and thus did not get the benefit of the Primary Assumption of the Risk doctrine.
