United Parks & Resorts Earned a Defense Verdict After Nearly Seven Years of Litigation

A Gentry Locke trial team earned a defense verdict for United Parks & Resorts after nearly seven years of litigation in both state and federal court. The Plaintiff was injured on the Aquazoid waterslide while boarding a family-style raft. Her medical damages of over $260,000 were not contested. She had two surgeries on her left knee. Plaintiff sued for $1.5 million and asked the jury to award $868,000 in closing argument. After three days of evidence, the jury found that our client’s lifeguards were not negligent, vindicating our multi-year effort to defend the Plaintiff’s claims.

Status of the case:

A jury of eight returned a defense verdict for our client, United Parks & Resorts in the Eastern District of Virginia, Newport News Division.
