Irwin Mitchell has successfully claimed compensation for a West Bromwich based man injured following a day trip to West Midlands Safari Park with friends.
Our client was riding the River Rapids ride at the resort when suddenly without warning the carriage in which he was riding overturned and capsized. Our client was trapped in the water underneath the over turned carriage and was required to lift the carriage off him to free himself. As our client lifted the heavy carriage they suffered a sharp pain in their back.
Mr S suffered with intense pain in their back and neck for several weeks after their accident and had to take pain killers to address his symptoms.
Reiss Matthews, a personal injury specialist based in our Birmingham office, dealt with the claim. West Midlands Safari Park admitted liability for our client’s accident and a five figure out of court settlement was agreed.
