An Anderson County jury found in favor of a Lawrenceburg charity club after a man broke his leg at the club’s charity haunted house. The grand finale of the haunted house featured an unexpected narrow chute opening, plummeting visitors down a fifty-foot slide. The man didn’t particularly enjoy this ride, as he broke his leg on the descent. The Plaintiff alleged the club neglected to construct a reasonably safe haunted house. In defense, Christopher O’Bryan successfully argued that the man was liable because he did not keep his legs together while sitting as instructed.
