Premises Liability at Amusement Park

A recent case result caught my eye.  It was an incident occurring at a theme park in Georgia and involved a situation where 3 young men who had been at the park earlier in the day were waiting for a bus- while still on park property- and were assaulted and beaten severely by park employees who had just ended their shift.

Surveillance in cases

It is not unusual for an insurer to retain an investigator to perform a surveillance and perhaps take video of an injured person.  I had one case where the supposedly injured person was videotaped carrying a heavy air conditioner up a steep flight of steps;  needless to say, when plaintiff's attorney found out about the video, his negotiating position was compromised greatly and the value of the case decreased dramatically.

Remembering your Case

We attorneys take certain things for granted in a lawsuit;  for example, we know there is a difference between the truth and the provable truth.  We also know that even the most simple case takes alot longer to resolve than most laypersons can imagine.  For this reason, it is critical that the aggrieved person maintain a log or journal which chronicles important issues, i.e., conversations which you had with the other party or witnesses to an occurrence;  dates/types of treatment and names of medical providers;  pain/discomfort and activities you either can not do or can only do on a limited basis;  days missed from work or schoo; other out-of-pocket expenses such as prescription medications, public transportation, etc.;  inability to sleep;  and the impact which an incident/injury has had on your emotional and mental well-being.
