Sports injury lawyer Doug Landau has zip lined on professionally supervised courses, and encourages anyone thinking of using a “home” kit to carefully inspect the equipment and follow all manufacturers instructions. Even when doing so, however, defective or faulty equipment can cause harm to innocent users.
If you or someone you know or care for has been injured while using defective recreational sports equipment like a zipline kit, and there are questions as to what laws apply, email or call Abrams Landau, Ltd. at once (703-796-9555).
