GALVESTON – A trip to a local attraction more than a year ago allegedly resulted in injuries for a young girl from Colorado.
James and Diana Foster filed a lawsuit against Willie G’s Post Oak, Inc., doing business as Pleasure Pier; Landry’s, Inc.; and Fertitta Entertainment, Inc. on Jan. 12 in Galveston federal court on claims their daughter, Ava Renee, was hurt while riding the Pirate’s Plunge.
Recent court papers describe the Pirate’s Plunge at the Pleasure Pier in Galveston as a log flume ride that consists of twists, turns and two drops measuring 40 and 22 feet.
On May 29, 2016, the original petition explains, Ava was injured when her head slammed in to the front of the passenger compartment of the log flume at the bottom of the 40-ft. drop of the ride.
The then-12-year-old subsequently spent more than 90 days in a restrictive neck brace and her neck was fused on Sept. 16, 2016, the suit states.
Consequently, the Fosters seek unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Robert L. Sayles of the law firm Sayles | Werbner in Dallas serves as the plaintiffs’ lead counsel.
