Flying Tractor Wheel Causes Injury at County Fair
During a tractor-pull event at the Addison County Fair and Field Days, a broken hub led to a flying wheel causing serious injury to an audience member. The 500-pound wheel flew from the tractor, striking a spectator who was rushed to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington. Remarkably, only one person was struck.
When asked about liability, Jim Foster Jr., president of the board of directors for the fair, remarked that participants in the tractor-pull event are required to hold their own insurance. However, if history is any indication, negligent parties holding insurance is far from a guarantee of swift or fair compensation.
While this type of accident is rare, personal injury sustained during county fairs is not. When you or a loved one are harmed on a ride or during an event, you need an experienced attorney on your side to make sure you are treated fairly and provided the full compensation you are due.
