In this sad and tragic case, Disney clearly should have known the safety hazards with this fountain. The pressure per square inch was too much for the purpose of which the installation was intended
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Vocus) April 27, 2010
Fort Lauderdale based Boone & Davis, a firm experienced with theme park accident s, is currently working on 2007-CA-1003-34 in Orange County, 9th judicial circuit, Stone vs DWD Hospitality Recreation Corp. The firm is currently litigating the case of a 5 year old girl injured by a powerful jet of water at Downtown Disney. Water from the fountain, which is designed for children, blasted at a high speed, ripped through the girl’s bathing suit, and perforated her large intestine.
The argument being pursued is that the water pressure was too much for the fountain’s purpose. The Disney World accident case is being handled by attorneys that are skilled at winning cases of theme park accidents throughout Florida. Their goal is to find the causes of such accidents, such as poor maintenance, failed safety belts, improperly calibrated cables, and malfunctioning motors. The training and background of ride operators are also examined. Injuries from theme park rides have risen 87% in the last five years, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
“In this sad and tragic case, Disney clearly should have known the safety hazards with this fountain. The pressure per square inch was too much for the purpose of which the installation was intended,” said Michael Davis, Senior Partner at Boone and Davis.
Any accidents resulting in injury or death, including Disney World accidents, are handled by Boone & Davis’ accident lawyers, who are often able to recover financial damages due to the accident. These damages go toward payment of medical expenses and compensation for pain and suffering and mental anguish.
In theme park accidents like the one that occurred in Downtown Disney, attorneys at Boone & Davis are paid on a contingent basis, meaning that clients only pay if the case is won. Attorneys handle every aspect of the case, provide notification of any developments in the case, and most importantly, are available to answer any questions that arise.
