Dan Meers, who was the Chiefs mascot, KC Wolf, and was seriously injured in a zip-line accident last November, has reached a confidential settlement in a lawsuit regarding the incident.
In a pre-game rehearsal before the Chiefs’ home game against the San Diego Chargers, Meers fell into the upper deck seating at Arrowhead Stadium when the rigging of the bungee cord attached to the zip line failed. The result of the fall left Meers with serious spinal and pelvic injuries that required surgery.
Due to the confidentiality of the agreement, we do not know who was identified as the party at fault or the settlement agreement, but Meers’ attorney, Tim Dollar, tells the Kansas City Star that the party was not the Chiefs.
Here’s what Dollar told The Star about Meers’ future:
“You can expect him back on the sidelines interacting and doing his thing. The only difference is you’re not likely to see him flying off four-wheelers or tackling the bad guys or doing any bungee jumps anymore.”
That’s a bummer, but probably a wise decision. Also, how awesome is Meer’s lawyer’s name – Tim Dollar. Fantastic.
I’m glad Meers is okay and will be back on the sidelines this season.
