So we settled a case involving a young woman who was visiting an amusement park in Orange County, and she was using a rock climbing wall. The amusement park had a poorly trained brand new young man in his teens who was responsible for taking care of our our client and he put her into the harness but did not strap the safety harness to the rope. Our client climbed to the top of the rock wall, got to the very top, looked down at her family, and then, as most people do, held her arms up and fell back. She fell 40 ft seriously injuring her spine and her leg.

Costa Mesa Personal Injury Attorneys
