While the new Skyslide is a significant tourist attraction, there is a hidden risk for visitors. Many seek out the “Skyslide.” And at least one woman has been severely injured while riding it. So some L.A. personal injury attorneys may have found a new cottage industry here. A new lawsuit shows the risk presented to the public and the insufficient safety checks done to prevent harm from coming to visitors.
Even though it’s just open a month at the U.S. Bank Tower, the slide already claimed a victim. Gayle Yashar, 57, of New York claimed that she broke her ankle while using the slide. She and her husband filed a complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court, the company that owns the U.S. Bank Towner, Our, and Legends Hospitality, the operator of the slide.
The lawsuit says that the slide accelerates so fast that visitors cannot correctly slow down in time to prevent injury. Yashar and her attorney even posted the video of her trip down the Skyslide on Youtube.
