foam blocks

From extensively representing clients in personal injury lawsuits, Berkowitz and Hanna LLC knows that faulty equipment, negligence in property upkeep, or even a lack of safety procedures can lead to an injury. Recently, a Georgia football coach filed a lawsuit against an entertainment park alleging he was paralyzed in a foam pit accident at the park.

As reported by 11 Alive, Jonathan Magwood jumped into the foam pit at Rockbridge Adventures in Peachtree City, landed on his neck, and breaking two vertebrae. The lawsuit claims that Magwood had asked the pit attendant if he could jump into the pit and then was told to proceed. His lawyer is arguing that Rockbridge Adventures did not have an adequate number of foam blocks in the pit. The facility is also said to have failed to place a safety net seven feet from the ground and to have a backup safety protection system.

With Magwood most likely requiring long-term care, Berkowitz and Hanna LLC notes that his lawyer may seek significant monetary damages for Magwood’s medical bills, lost earnings and pain and suffering.

Please note: Berkowitz and Hanna LLC does not represent any of the parties in this case.
