I think I remember the property manager at AOP saying that those waivers don’t mean much, especially if they can prove negligence by the park (e.g. lack of culvert maintenance at DT). Pretty sure he also said they would file bankruptcy in a similar type of situation. s***ty situation for all but it definitely sounds like these lawyers squeezed as much as they could out of the situation.Well it depends on how it was awarded. If the teen wouldn't settle with the insurance company, which I'm sure durantown has, then more than likely they will file bankruptcy and the teen and his family will get no where near the jury delivered settlement.
Sadly, he was likely acting irresponsibly, and the first rule is never admit guilt or they'll eat you alive, so duramtown was in a no win situation. And since it's taken 5 years, I'm saying they tried to settle but the lawyers wanted to get the big payday. But what none of those money hungry fools tell clients is that you can't get blood from a turnip. They might get limits on the policy, which after 5 years of lawyers fees are paid won't be much, probably less than a million left to split. And there's no way the park has a cool $16 mil just setting there. The only assets would be the park itself and I seriously doubt it's worth that kinda cash, and if they file bankruptcy, then even less to be had...
Bad bad deal all around. Likely (don't know that for sure) shared fault, park should have fixed culvert, kid should not have been being stupid. Duramtown will likely go away in name, someone else will buy it and it will re-open under new management with a new name.
More Interesting thing to me is that if the rider signed the waiver, how did they go after the park. Kinda makes you wonder what that piece of paper is worth...
