Mt. Olympus has announced that it is permanently closing its indoor roller coaster following an incident that left a Fremont resident in serious medical condition after being ejected from one of the ride’s cars, an online report stated Wednesday, April 2.
Despite the closure, the company asserted that it followed appropriate safety precautions, including the ride’s weight limitation per car and the proper inspection of its parts. This is in contrast with the results of the investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, which showed Mt. Olympus’ Opa! Rollercoaster exceeded the ride’s weight limitation per car, and that its worn-out parts prevented the lap bar from locking.
Unfortunately, the negligence of property owners like this all too often results in the serious injury of innocent people in Lake Geneva.

A settlement agreement signed by Toyota recently will require the car giant to pay $1.2 billion over safety concerns, an online report by CNN stated on Wednesday, March 19.
The agreement was made based on the car company’s admission that it deceived the public and the U.S. safety regulators over issues of sudden acceleration. The agreement requires Toyota to be subjected to government monitoring for three years, at the end of which the charges could be dropped.
At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we believe residents in Lake Geneva who have suffered unduly because of a defective vehicle should be entitled to compensation for all their losses.

Knowing if your loved one is experiencing mistreatment in a long term care home is essential for his/her safety and overall health. It is, therefore, important to know of some indicators that might suggest your loved one is being neglected or abused in a nursing home.
To determine if your loved one is being mistreated, make sure to do the following:
- Ask – The best way to know if your loved one is being abused or neglected is to directly ask him/her questions. Allow him/her to tell you his/her experiences, and what he/she feels.
- Inspect – Pressure sores, malnutrition, dehydration, and unexplained cuts might all indicate nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Identify – Determine if the nursing home bears any records of abuse and neglect. Know the staff. Notice if the staff interact with the residents with perceived sympathy and kindness.
If, while evaluating all these indicators, you have found that your loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home in Lake Geneva, a lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can help you explore the legal actions available to you. Call us at 800-242-2874 to discuss your options for filing a lawsuit.

An online report published on Thursday, February 20 revealed that General Motors (GM) has long been aware about the ignition trouble that sparked the recall of some of the company’s compact cars last week.
Last week, GM recalled over 778,000 Pontiac G5 and Chevrolet Cobalt compact cars following reports of injuries and deaths due to ill-designed ignition switches that might cause engines to turn off and airbags not to function. A lawsuit filed against the company revealed GM acknowledged the problem in 2005 through a bulletin advising the dealers to fix the problem with a key insert. However, GM failed to carry-out the improvement for new Cobalt units before they were sold.

30-year-old Alexander R. Ritcher of southeast Wisconsin was sentenced to 145 years of imprisonment after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a 2-year old girl and five other children, as the Associated Press reported Friday, December 13.
Investigations revealed that Ritcher convinced families to allow him to babysit their kids, giving him the chance to sexually assault the children. Ritcher was arrested after a 6-year-old victim told his parent that he and his 4-year-old sister had been sexually abused.
In his arrest, authorities also recovered videos of Ritcher sexually abusing six kids aged between two and six. The plaintiffs’ lawyers stated that Ritcher had been committing pedophilic misconducts since he was a teenager, and there might be other cases of sexual abuse left unreported.
Our attorneys from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® believe that perpetrators of sexual assault in Lake Geneva should be held accountable to the fullest extent permitted by the law, both criminally and civilly. Call us at 800-242-2874 to learn more about filing a civil claim for financial compensation in such a situation.
