ANGELS CAMP, Calif. (AP) — The family of five children injured in a Northern California carnival ride collapse has reached a settlement of nearly $3.4 million with ride owners and the manufacturer.
The Record of Stockton reports that Robert and Deena Milligan have settled with Brass Ring Amusements, Chance Rides Manufacturing and North American Amusements over the May 2008 accident.
Lawyers for the Milligans say one of the couple’s children suffered permanent brain damage and orthopedic injuries in the accident. Plantiff lawyers will receive more than $1 million of the settlement, approved by a judge Tuesday.
The collapse of the Yo-Yo chair ride at the Calaveras County Fair injured a total of 21 children.
Last year, California regulators found that the ride was not properly maintained.
