My family went to Sequoia National Park for camping in August. As for one of the activities, we decided to go to Crystal Cave. This is a guided tour and a lot of people go there during summer. We were waiting by the entrance of the cave where the tour guide told us to wait. All of sudden, a big marble rock fell down from top of the cave entrance and hit my daughter's head. Luckily for us, my daughter (11 years old) wasn't badly injured, but the paramedics came and took her to emergency to make sure she didn't have any internal bleeding or anything.
It's obvious that Sequoia National Park did not take proper steps to prevent accidents. While we were waiting for paramedics to come, small rocks, tree branches and leaves continued to fall. It was basically accidents waiting to happen. I believe that Sequoia National Park should have taken more steps to make sure that the waiting area is safe, but they failed miserably.
Yesterday, I received a bill from the ambulance company that I need to pay over $2,000 for the service. Who is responsible for paying this? I haven't contacted Sequoia National Park yet, but if the park refuses to pay, do I have a case here?
