Injuries on a Canoe Trip - Who is at fault?

Posted by Alexander Wolff | Nov 26, 2018 | 0 Comments

We recently filed a lawsuit against Big Muddy Adventures for injuries sustained by our client after she was instructed to exit a river in the dark.  Our client's group was meant to be off the river before dark, but the guide failed to have them at the right exit point on time.  After dark, the guide instructed the whole group, including our client, to get out of the river on a dirt path that had no lighting.  The path also led to a public park that was closed after dark.  The park was also not the right place for the group to exit the river.  Despite all of this, our client was told to get out of the river.

The lawsuit seeks damages for terrible injuries she sustained, including a broken knee.

When a company invites customers to float a river, that company takes responsibility for the safe passage of those customers.  Why was this group still on the water after dark?  Why didn't the guides keep on schedule?  Why was this group asked to exit the river into a closed park when they should have exited at the designated exit point?  Who could have prevented this from happening?
