Families injured in Lancaster tent collapse seeking legal representation


LANCASTER - Two families injured in the Lancaster Fair tent collapse Monday have already sought out legal representation to file charges against the circus company, Walker Brothers and the Lancaster Fairground Association.

Concord attorney and former Federal Prosecutor Peter McGrath told NH1 News he will be filing liability charges on the families' behalf.

The state's Fire Marshal's office says the circus company did not have proper permits and the fire department was never notified, as required, that a tent was being erected.

McGrath would not elaborate further on the extent of injuries sustained from the families he is representing.

41-year-old Robert Young and his eight-year-old daughter, Annabelle died in the tent collapse and at least 32 people were injured.
