WAYNE - A woman is suing Camden Park for injuries she allegedly sustained while attempting to enter the amusement park in the third recent lawsuit filed against it.
On Aug. 11, 2012, Linda Rogers was on the premises of Camden Park when she attempted to enter the amusement park and she tripped and fell on broken and cracked blacktop, according to a complaint filed Aug. 15 in Wayne Circuit Court.
Rogers claims the defendant failed to maintain the blacktop entering the amusement park in a reasonably safe condition; failed to warn Rogers of the danger presented by the cracked and/or broken blacktop; failed to maintain the blacktop in a manner which allowed the entrance into the amusement park to be flat; and failed to otherwise exercise due care.
As a direct and proximate result of the negligence of the defendant, Rogers tripped on the resulting hazard created by the cracked and/or broken blacktop and fell while attempting to enter the amusement park, according to the suit.
Rogers claims as a further direct and proximate result of the negligence of the defendant, Rogers sustained serious injuries to her leg, ankle, knee and back.
The defendant's actions caused Rogers to sustain serious injuries, including medical and hospital bills; physical injuries; severe and significant emotional distress and mental pain and suffering; fear, humiliation and embarrassment; annoyance and inconvenience; loss of physical health and well being; loss of enjoyment of life; disability and disfigurement; and loss of homemaker and household services, according to the suit.
Rogers is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Jon D. Hoover of Hoover Andrews PLLC.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Darrell Pratt.
In July, two personal injury lawsuits were filed against Camden Park. The first alleged an arm on the Spider ride broke off while Jennifer Ooten was on it, causing her to fall to the ground.
The second lawsuit alleged the motor on the Flying Scooter seized up, sheared its mounting and fell to the ground, which caused the ride to come to a complete stop and cause injuries to Elizabeth Harless and her son.
Both of the July lawsuits were filed by Charleston attorney Troy N. Giatras of the Giatras Law Firm.
