Attorney Diaz to Represent Man Injured at Hawaiian Falls Water Park

Attorney Tony Diaz will represent a Travis County man who was injured at Hawaiian Falls water and adventure park after he was knocked unconscious on a water slide, suffering severe injuries.

The plaintiff, 53-year-old Lauro Castrejon, was visiting the water park with his family when he was permitted by employees to enter an enclosed water slide with several twists and turns. About halfway through the tube, Castrejon became stuck due to a stoppage of water flow, forcing him to use his elbows and heels to push himself forward. Moments later, Castrejon heard a loud yell before being slammed into by an overweight man, knocking him unconscious and causing serious injury to his shoulder, head, back, neck, leg, and spinal column. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

According to the lawsuit, the employees' decision to allow the overweight man to enter the tube impeded the flow of water and created a dangerous condition that caused Castrejon to become stuck, resulting in his injury. Park employees did not check to confirm that he had exited the slide before sending another person through the slide.

The lawsuit also states that Hawaiian Falls has been largely uncooperative following the incident, offering Castrejon two free tickets to return that expired in 2015. An insurance representative from the park even went as far as to claim that he never even visited the park, and that they do not pay claims "to people that are illegal aliens." Mr. Castrejon is indeed a legal resident.

The plaintiff seeks up to $100,000 in damages and expenses.
