A jury in Orange County determined that Walt Disney World does not in fact owe damages to a woman who sued the park after she was attacked. Aimer Krause was standing in line for the Mad Tea Party ride when she was assaulted by another guest, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Her attacker was Victoria Walker. Krause filed the lawsuit against Walt Disney World in 2008.
Krause claims that Disney was negligent in their staffing on the ride and failed to provide adequate security. Disney was able to show the jury that Krause has a history of violent and unpredictable behavior dating back to her youth.
“We’re pleased we won this case,” said Walt Disney World spokeswoman Andrea M. Finger. “Our attraction host and security cast members responded appropriately and quickly in this situation.”
With virtually unlimited resources, filing a law suit against Walt Disney World or any major theme parks can be a daunting task for any law firm, even if they were obviously negligent. If you were to find yourself in a situation like this, you need a law firm experienced in theme park safety and tourist injuries in your side.
