Reverse Bungee Ride Accident Lawyer

Table of Contents

    Over the years, amusement park attractions have gradually evolved to become more and more extreme. One of the most extreme is arguably the reverse bungee, also known as the slingshot, catapult, or ejection seat. These attractions work by placing riders into a cage-like sling or harness before flinging them upward into the open sky. The sheer speed and energy involved with these rides make them potentially dangerous to passengers if any accidents should occur.
    When accidents do happen, the occupant is unlikely to escape the incident without sustaining injuries. In some cases, amusement park patrons have even been wrongfully killed in incidents with these rides. The victims of these preventable disasters are often left to cope with terrible physical injuries, emotional trauma, and ongoing financial hardship as a result of medical bills combined with lost time from work. If you were hurt by a catapult ride, you may potentially have a claim to compensation for the damages against you.

    Catapult Ride Accidents and Fatalities

    These attractions take velocity to the extreme, projecting riders through the air at speeds which can reach approximately 100 miles per hour. In addition to extreme speeds, these rides also involve extreme heights, with some flinging riders nearly 500 feet into the sky. This combination can lead to catastrophic injury if an accident should take place.
    Multiple catapult ride accidents, some fatal, have taken place in recent decades. In 1998 in Canada, 21-year-old Jerome Charron was killed when he was thrown out of a ride called the Rocket Launcher after a cord snapped and fell away from the ride. After the accident, operating company Anderson Ventures was found guilty of making unapproved alterations to the ride, and received a record fine. In 2000, mobile slingshot rides were banned in Ontario after being deemed too dangerous.
    In the United States, serious catapult accidents involving patrons and ride operators alike have occurred in parks and fairs around the country, including Florida, Texas, Oregon, New York, New Jersey, and Wisconsin.
    Falls from catapult rides and other accidents involving ejection seat rides can cause devastating injuries and ongoing medical effects, such as:

    • Back Injuries
    • Bone Fractures
    • Disfigurement
    • Head Injuries
    • Paralysis
    • Spinal Cord Injuries
    • Traumatic Brain Injury

    In some cases, these injuries and their repercussions can last for years, decades, or a lifetime, and the victim may require around-the-clock supervision and care. For example, if a patron falls from a defective catapult and becomes fully or partially paralyzed by the impact, he or she may require physical assistance in daily tasks and may have to undergo physical and/or psychological therapy and miss work and income. If the injury victim was previously providing for a family, the financial damages can be devastating to multiple people. Not only do such accidents hurt the person who suffers directly — they hurt that person’s entire family.
    If you or someone you love was hurt in a bungee ride accident at an amusement park or carnival, an attorney can help you fight for justice and fair compensation. To schedule a confidential legal consultation free of charge, call The Reiff Law Firm at (215) 709-6940, or contact us online today.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
