I've opened and closed a car door quite a few times to make sure it closed all the way... or pressed against it to see if it gave way or not.

Here she was pressed against it and it flew open.

Strange. I guess the kid gets tired of people who express doubts.

Somebody is gonna own an amusement park. Lawyers
all over the country are losing sleep tonight.

Why? Because they didn't get the case?

Her size has NOTHING to do with it, legally.

Were she deemed "too big," Six Flags should have prohibited her from riding.

I just hope some half-wit defense attorney raises her size as an issue; he'd walk into a buzz saw.

Of course. I knew a lawyer years ago who constantly
bitched about cases other lawyers got. A case like this
will have them crying themselves to sleep because
it didn't happen in their town.

Thats it in a nutshell. The bigger she was the better.
Six Flags let her on the ride with their blessing, thats
all the jury needs to see.

Poor Sam Bernstein.



Of course the lawyer from the park already
had the family on the phone within the hour
trying to give them a settlement check.

I have to admit, it probably won't look good in court for Six Flags. An out of court settlement, perhaps?

Quote:

The woman was accompanied by two children, who were "hysterical," Kelley said. "They were saying that their mother flew out of the car."

"It was sad. It was very sad," she said. "We kept telling them to let them out because they were hysterical. The daughter and the son said, 'We have to go get my mom. We have to go get my mom.' We were kind of in disbelief, and we just said a prayer for her."

Like I said, the lawyers for the park are already
on the phone to the family talking settlement.
I had a similar thing happen to me, I got hit
by a truck as a pedestrian 20 years ago. Broke
my arm and wrist in 3 places. When I got home
from the hospital hours later, there were 5 calls
on my answering machine from the companies
lawyer wanting to talk to me about a settlement.
I went to court instead.
