News - Foley & Small Settles Claim for $600,000

Back to News

Foley & Small recently settled a claim on behalf of a woman who suffered severe injuries while using a zip line at a private residence.  The client suffered vertebral fractures, rib fractures, a fractured finger and pelvic bruising.  The settlement was for a total of $600,000.  It was asserted that the client fell because the pulley device on the zip line caught causing her to lose her grip, falling nearly 20 feet to the ground.  The reason for the failure, it was asserted, was that the pulley device on the zip line had been improperly placed on the line.  When it was used, with weight applied to the line, the pulley device would catch on the wire, stopping abruptly and unexpectedly, which caused our client to lose her grip, falling to the ground and suffering severe injuries.
