Haunted House Litigation is a Ghost Area of Law

If someone suffers a heart attack or other health problem while visiting a haunted house, is the company liable for their medical bills? According to the Law Blog of the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), this area of law is still unclear. America Haunts reports that there are more than 1,500 haunted attractions and amusement facilities that have Halloween-specific attractions and none of them has ever been embroiled in any sort of major litigation. “They all come of their own free will,” Stephen Hummel of America Haunts told the Law Blog. “And they want to be scared, so complaining wouldn’t make sense.”
