Wrongful Death Lawsuit Stemming From Whitewater Rafting Accident Settles For Undisclosed Amount.

Tragic accidents occur on far too frequent a basis. When they do occur, the natural inclination is to try and understand how such a thing could have happened, and what conditions allowed it to happen. In essence, we want to know whose fault it is that an accident took place. Sometimes there is no blame to be assigned; but oftentimes, horrible accidents are the result of negligent behavior, and the accident could have been avoided altogether had someone acted reasonably. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.

In the summer of 2015, Brian Niedermeyer employed the services of Geyser Whitewater Expeditions for a whitewater rafting trip on the Gallatin River, a tributary of the Missouri. According to reports, the raft flipped over, causing the guide and all seven passengers to fall into the water. After being pulled ashore and receiving CPR, Brian Niedermeyer tragically died, prompting his wife Angela to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Geyser. Among many allegations, the suit claimed that Geyser failed to properly prepare the raft for the conditions, failed to properly train its employees, and gave Mr. Niedermeyer an old and ineffective life jacket.

Although Geyser denied nearly all of the allegations, the two parties eventually settled mid-trial, for an undisclosed amount. Both parties have expressed their happiness to “have the case behind them.” Niedermeyer was represented by attorney Devlan Geddes of Goetz, Baldwin and Geddes PC.
