Theme Park Accidents
Amusement Park Injuries are More Frequent than You Think
In lieu of investigations by the Bureau, major theme parks in Florida are required to file quarterly occurrence reports that detail all major accidents and incidents for the year.
This means anything that required overnight hospitalization or resulted in death. If you have been hurt in an accident at an amusement park in Miami Dade or Broward County, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries.
Who is Liable For An Amusement Park Accident?
Depending on the facts of your case, the legal liability may lie with either the amusement park’s owner, the manufacturer of the theme park ride, the concession stands owner, or whatever company is directly responsible. In some cases, more than one party will be required to pay compensation to the injured party.
Common Types of Theme Park Injuries
- Slip-and-fall accidents that occur due to protruding obstacles or, more commonly, water spillage that was not addressed.
- Broken or damaged amusement park rides, which can lead to traumatic brain injuries or other serious injuries.
- Unsafe or improperly maintained rides, such as water rides or roller coasters can result in drowning, amputations, and decapitations.
- Untrained or inebriated ride operators, which can lead to malfunctions, injuries, or improper operation.
