Orlando Walt Disney World sued by female tourist saying Tower of Terror caused stroke. By: Daytona Beach personal injury lawyers
Daytona Beach, FL (JusticeNewsFlash.com)–A lawsuit was filed by plaintiff’s attorneys in a Florida state circuit court last Friday claiming a ride at Walt Disney World caused a 19 year-old British tourist to suffer a stroke. Leanne Deacon and her mother along with their lawyers filed a suit in court alleging Deacon suffered a brain hemorrhage on July 12, 2005 after her heart stopped soon after she rode the Tower of Terror theme park ride.
Court documents say the Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios caused the young girl’s heart condition with its high speeds and plunging drops. The suit says Disney didn’t alert tourists and riders of the risks and safety precautions. The Tower of Terror’s design and operation are also in question raising additional negligence accusations.
