A jury ordered a Six Flags theme park to pay an injured park-goer $4 million after a roller coaster accident left him with a permanent hernia condition.
A roller coaster accident lawyer immediately prepared the client’s case for trial, and after six weeks in court, a jury determined that Six Flags was 100% liable for the accident on one of its roller coasters.
Following the accident, park management finally added safety belts to the ride that could have prevented his injuries. The case was ultimately settled for $2.85 million after Six Flags filed multiple appeals.
The offer to settle this lawsuit before trial was never greater than $250,000.
