A 15-year-old boy suffered blindness in one eye, loss of the quality of life, and emotional distress, from a bungee cord accident. He was on a school field trip involving a zip line. He was struck by a broken bungee cord which acted as a brake for the zip line. It was carrying another student between two trees while the boy was waiting for his turn.
Weitz & Luxenberg attorneys Nicholas Wise and Edward S. Bosek argued that the bungee cord in the break system was too short and negligently designed.
