“In the past five years, hundreds of commercial zip-line parks have opened in the United States. At least 400 are open nationwide, and more are on the way. You can zip-line across ski runs in the off-season at Hunter Mountain in New York or over giraffes at the Columbus Zoo. In Paso Robles, California, you can ride the Pinot Express zip line over the Santa Margarita Ranch vineyard. You can even zip-line in your own backyard using DIY kits from companies like Slackers and Ripline,” Outside Online reports. “As adventure parks make their way across the Pacific and open in every U.S. state, the question to ask: Is anyone regulating them?”

Following the tragic deaths of two children, WRAL reports, North Carolina “families are pushing for greater oversight for the industry that currently has very little.”

Rides at the State Fair undergo state inspections each year. So do ski lifts, elevators and moving walkways at the airport. But zip lines and ropes courses don’t get the same treatment….In North Carolina, inspections are self-regulated by the aerial adventure industry.

In July 2018, a “new ropes course at [a lodge]” was temporarily closed “after a child fell,” according to Ozarks First. The young victim was transported to the hospital in “stable” condition.

In September 2018, CBS Boston reports, Duxbury firefighters rescued a 12-year-old girl, who was found “dangling 30 feet in the air by her ankles” on a “a high angle ropes confidence course at [a local camp].”

Victims of Adventure Course Accidents: Know Your Rights

Adventure course patrons have a right to be safe and secure while enjoying the property. By law, adventure course owners have a duty to protect patrons from any foreseeable harm. This responsibility is particularly critical when overseeing the safety of children. Should an adventure course property owner fail to implement proper security precautions, safety training, or equipment inspections, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or deaths which occur as a consequence.

Could the senseless loss of this young man have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Miller’s family?

Local News

20-year-old Robert Bellamy Miller, III was shot and killed outside a mobile home community “at 4713 E Hillsborough Ave.” Wednesday, September 26, 2018, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Mr. Miller was transported to St. Josephs Hospital with “upper body gunshot wounds,” per ABC Action News reports. Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries.

Our Legal Take

Mobile home community residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, bright lighting, fencing, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Miller at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Robert Bellamy Miller, III may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Our Legal Take

Nightclub and concert venue patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
