Precisely. Idealism is fun, but I'm pretty sure we'll never see any company come forward after such an incident and nobly admit fault.

If I am correct, the victim's family was suing for a $1 million. Either one party or both settle with the victim's family. The family gets compensated while each organization doesn't admit guilt.

I don't feel it's always that clear cut. If Six Flags didn't maintain or operate as was recommended by the manufacturer, then the liability doesn't completely fall onto Gerstlauer.

Basically, it seems that they should both have to pay the family of the victim some amount. Not convinced as to who is more to blame at the moment, but all will be told in time

This is what's wrong with this country. Your first statement supposes facts not in evidence (That there was any maintenance failure, which there wasn't). Then you leap to both sides need to pay. logic fail.
