State fair halted after accident

North Carolina residents may understand how dangerous carnival rides can be. That message was reinforced on July 26 when one person was killed and seven others were injured at the Ohio state fair. According to authorities, the incident was reported at near 7:24 p.m., and authorities also said that three of those who were injured were in critical condition.

It was reported that three people had been taken to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Another three patients were taken in by OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, and two of the patients there had been released the following morning. The accident took place on a ride called the Fire Ball, and it had reportedly been inspected on several different occasions prior to the accident taking place.

Gov. John Kasich ordered that all rides be shut down until a full investigation could be conducted into what caused the accident. According to a video taken at the scene, seats had broken off of the ride, which resulted in bodies being thrown 20 to 30 feet by some estimates. The fair had been scheduled to run until Aug. 6, and in 2016, there were more than 900,000 people who attended the event.

Property owners have the obligation to keep their premises free of hazards. If a person who has the right to be on the premises is injured by a dangerous condition, then a personal injury attorney might find it advisable to file a premises liability lawsuit on the victim's behalf seeking compensation for the losses that have been incurred.
