When the father of a 13 year old boy agreed to let him go on vacation with his son’s friend’s family to Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee he thought he would be properly supervised. Unfortunately, the resort they were staying at allowed the families to rent jet ski’s without showing them safety training videos and did not require riders to sign disclosures limiting riders to appropriate ages. The parents who were in charge let 3 kids under the age of 13 to ride jet ski’s unsupervised. That’s when one of the children lost control of her jet ski and ran into our 13 year old client, causing very serious injuries. Because we felt the resort was partially responsible, we brought a law suit in Picket County, Tennessee, where we sued the supervising parents and the resort. Just before jury selection the insurance companies agreed to settle the case for a total of $1,317,000. After we placed the settlement on the record in open court, the presiding judge told us this was the largest settlement that has ever occurred in Picket County. This case was handled by trial attorney Brian Acard and managing attorney David Gross.
