State Inspector Lied And Conductor Was Speeding In Amusement Park Accident

An inspector for South Carolina’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (LLR) has admitted to investigators that he falsified the annual inspection report for an amusement park train ride that overturned Saturday, killing 6 year old Benjamin Easley and injuring two dozen others. Donnie Carrigan, who has since resigned from LLR, said he issued a clean inspection report despite being unable to actually test the train due to a dead battery.

Despite the falsified inspection, perhaps the blame for this tragic accident really lies with the driver of the train, Matthew Conrad. Conrad told police that he was going too fast and that “he knew better than to drive the train that fast.” He also admitted that he drove faster on his second lap and that he “opened it up” on the final lap.

The list of prior client settlement results and client reviews/testimonials, do not constitute a promise of any particular result in any particular case, as each and every case is unique. Each case was handled on its own merit, and the outcome of any case cannot be predicted by a lawyer or law firms past results.

If a recovery or settlement by trial is made, the client will be responsible for costs advanced in addition to attorney fees. Client remains responsible for costs, expenses and disbursements, including medical bills, within the scope of representation. The attorney’s contingency percentage will be computed prior to the deduction of expenses from the total recovery.
