HUNTINGTON – A Kentucky woman has filed suit against Camden Park after she says she suffered from whiplash on one of the amusement park's rides.
Tracy Bradley claims she was riding on The Little Dipper at Camden Park on Aug. 16, 2008, when it malfunctioned and threw Bradley backward and forward, causing her to experience whiplash.
Because of the incident, Bradley sustained severe pain and suffering, incurred medical expenses, lost wages and has an increased likelihood of future medical complications, the suit states.
She says Camden Park failed to properly maintain and operate its ride in a safe manner.
Bradley is seeking an unspecified judgment, plus costs and other relief to which she may be entitled.
Christopher A. Dawson of Hensley and Dawson in Flatwoods, Ky., will be representing her.
The case has been assigned to Cabell Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
