Gersowitz Libo & Korek P.C. Filed Suits Against Adventure Bound Camping Resorts for the Wrongful Death of a 3-Year-Old Girl Who Died After a Tree Branch Fell on Her

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park On October 23, 2020, the legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey against Bound Camping Resorts. The lawsuit alleges wrongful death and negligence causes of action against the defendants after a 3-year-old girl was killed by a falling tree branch at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Campground.

Attorney Michael A Fruhling, a senior partner at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is officially representing Plaintiff, Jose Martinez as the Administrator of the Estate of Ellys Martinez.

The plaintiffs have filed suit against H. Wayne Klekamp, Inc., doing business as Adventure Bound Camping Resorts, for wrongful death caused by the defendants’ negligence in maintaining the campground. Three-year-old Ellys Martinez was inside a tent at the Yogi Bear Park Campground at Tall Pines in Elmer at 2 p.m. on July 6, 2019, when a falling tree branch struck her. The little girl was taken to Inspira Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. The toddler was fatally struck by a tree branch as a result of the campground owner’s failure to properly maintain the premises. The wrongful death of Ellys Martinez resulted in the emotional distress of her parents, Jose Martinez and Bianka Ramirez.
