Comments for Woman Seeks $100,000 After “Life-Changing” Injury at Universal Park

  1. I’m not sure if she will be successful with this lawsuit. She broke the rules of the slide, you aren’t supposed to go head first. In fact, the rules specifically say to “Lie back with your head and torso against the slide surface with legs crossed below the knee”.

    When you don’t follow the safety rules of the park you should not be entitled to compensation of any kind despite how injured or entitled you feel.

      So why didn’t the ride attendant advise her of that? Or are there no ride attendants, which would be hard to believe?

    Read before you post, it’s a mat ride that is designed to go head first. That being said all 3 of my underr 100 lbs kids went down many times without any issues.

    1. I actually did read before I posted. The exact rules for the slide say “Lie back with your head and torso against the slide surface with legs crossed below the knee”.” That does not sound like head first to me. That is from Cedar Point’s website.

        Cedar Point is a different theme park than Universal Volcano Bay.

        1. I typed Cedar Point but meant Universal. I looked up the rules for this specific ride and quoted what it says.

            Read the entire article. Near the end, they said they recently changed the rules to make it safer. You used to go head-first with mats. Now you lie back without mats.

            I concede but in my defense I can only go with what I read.

    So about 8,000 people a day, 56,000 a week visit Volcano Bay. A few hundred injuries in months does not sound dangerous for water slides, pools, and fast rivers. Quite safe really.

      Your statistics are leftover from the ridiculous claims the anti-Covid people used to make. “So what if millions got sick and possibly died. AS A PERCENTAGE, it was a very small number of people.”

    Isn’t the statute of limitations 2 years for personal injury? Why wait 4 years to file a lawsuit?

    1. Yes it’s 2 years. Why this person waited four years is beyond me. That combined with the rules of the slide, I don’t think this will go far.

    A 78 year old woman felt ‘elbow pain’? That’s a good one!😀😀😀

    I hit my head on a universal ride too. I can no longer do the dishes or laundry, cook, vaccum, wash the car, mow the lawn, do any type of repair, or take the dog out. I am learning to live with these limitations, but my wife is devestated.

    Seems like she was brain dead before the accident. Why do people choose to defy the rules. The I’m so special and victimization card will probably be denied.

    1. Cindy johnson

      Those kinds of injuries can get more money unless she was negligent.
