KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A settlement has been reached for Dan Meers who wore the KC Chiefs’ mascot suit, KC Wolf after a zipline accident seriously injured the man.
Tim Dollar of Kansas City, Missouri, law firm Dollar, Burns & Becker, has reached a settlement, for an undisclosed amount, in the case of Dan Meers, better known as the Kansas City Chiefs’ mascot, KC Wolf. Meers suffered serious injuries while rehearsing a zipline routine last season.
Meers has been KC Wolf since the mascot’s inception 24 years ago. He is still recovering from the injuries he sustained on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013, prior to the Chiefs vs. Chargers game.
Although the injuries were critical and severe, Meers is expected to recover, and is in discussions with the KC Chiefs about a modified role as the mascot going forward.
The Meers family wants to express its sincerest gratitude to the Chiefs organization, the fans and the greater Kansas City community for their continued prayers and well wishes.
“The get-well wishes and support have been overwhelming, and have sustained my family and me during this difficult time,” said Meers.
Meers’ attorney, Tim Dollar, explained that, “As part of the agreement, the amount of the settlement and the parties involved in the case are confidential. The matter has been resolved to everyone’s satisfaction and we are delighted Dan can continue recovery without the burden of a trial.”
