Dworak Settles Zip Line Injury Case for Half a Million Dollars
Dworak represented the family of a four-year-old girl that suffered a skull fracture after falling off a neighbor’s backyard zip line while under the care and supervision of her babysitter. Dworak hired a prominent expert from Connecticut to examine the zip line. Together, they were able to show that the zip line was non-compliant with industry safety standards and the owner’s installation and safety manual and thus presented a hazard to the neighborhood children. Dworak sued both the owner, operator, and installer of the zip line under premises liability theories of negligence and the babysitter for negligent supervision. After deposing the defendants, the parties agreed to settle the matter for a combined $500,000.00.
