$3 Million Settlement for Paralyzing Accident
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A Brainerd man has settled his lawsuit against a St. Cloud trampoline park where he suffered a paralyzing injury in 2015.
Attorneys representing Anthony Seitz say that AirMaxx Trampoline Park will pay Seitz $3 million to settle the case. The St. Cloud Times reports the settlement was reached during mediation.
Seitz was paralyzed in August 2015 after he jumped into a foam pit at the trampoline park. He was playing there with his 11-year-old son when he jumped into the pit and landed on his neck, breaking it.
Seitz signed a waiver of liability before the injury, but his lawsuit contended that AirMaxx was grossly negligent.
Michael Hutchens, an attorney for AirMaxx, says the park is safe but the settlement avoided a trial and a potentially much larger award.
