Can I sue for my teen for being traumatized on a carnival ride? 5 Answers as of July 23, 2014My son was on a carnival ride that spins in the air on its side when his safety bar unlocked and opened up. He grabbed the seat and held on so he would not fall out. Now he won't go on a ladder or even the back deck. He says he will never go on a ride again and he says he will never go in the car if it is a long drive. What do I do? This is not him!

Begin by seeing your doctor and following any recommended course of treatment/counseling. You may have a case, but proving it is more difficult than in your typical injury situation. Was there a report made, information taken about the company involved and the sponsor of the event, etc.? Further guidance and evaluation of the claim would have to be through a consultation in which all the facts can be thoroughly examined. Any answer given here is going to be limited. Act promptly to preserve any possible claim.
