Kentucky Kingdom defends against injury allegations
Management of Louisville-based amusement park Kentucky Kingdom recently contended that the two personal injury lawsuits filed separately by Felicia Evans and Brandon McLellan against the park were false and are simply an attempt to extort the company, The Courier-Journal reported on October 22.
Kentucky Kingdom’s chief investor Ed Hart made known to the public a signed affidavit from a friend of the plaintiff which claimed that Evans intended to purposefully get injured in order to receive money. In her lawsuit, Evans alleged that she struck her head on the park’s Voodoo Express water slide ride due to the ride’s lack of stability, and now she is experiencing seizures. Hart, however, claimed the two plaintiffs did not follow the park rules and went down the slide together without listening to the lifeguards present.
Evans’ legal counsel said since they filed the lawsuit, his legal office has gotten calls from at least five people who said they were also hurt while using the Kentucky Kingdom rides.
