Author: Auger Law | October 20th, 2014

m01229A year after the tragedy at the North Carolina State Fair, safety is a word on everyone’s tongue. Especially it would seem for Steve Troxler, Agriculture Commissioner for North Carolina, who used it numerous times in his speech on Monday.

“We’re catchin’ hell left and right – they’re double- and triple-checking everything,” said Omar Knight.

After last year’s accident that left several people injured, some severely; this year’s safety inspectors are paying even closer attention than usual. One of the victims of last year’s incident is Anthony Gorham who is still unable to work. Cases are still pending, both civil and criminal, against the owners of the ride that injured Gorham.
