Theme Park Injury
Theme Park Injury Lawyer
Each year, millions of people attend theme parks for vacation or a day of adventure. However, theme parks can be dangerous and wreak havoc on visitor’s well beings. A theme park injury lawyer can help you get money for your injury.
Some of us remember Action Park in New Jersey. In the early 1980s, Action Park was one of the most popular theme parks in the country. Additionally, Action Park was the most dangerous theme park of its time. Serious safety problems plagued Action Park.
Insurance companies would not insure the park after countless injuries and several deaths. Action Park was permanently shut down in the 1990s. Modern-day theme parks are much safer than those of days past. Yet, accidents still occur.
Safety Problems At Theme Parks
When rides aren’t maintained or inspected, malfunctions occur. Safety testing and staff training are important to public safety. If you have a theme park injury, you deserve money for the theme park’s negligence.
Possible Injuries at Theme Park
There are many injuries that can occur at a theme park. Here are the main injuries that have been reported:
- Slip and fall
- Wrongful death
- Spinal cord and brain injury
Theme Park Negligence
It is the responsibility of the theme park to maintain the property and rides. in line with standard protocol and safety procedures. Their duty is to routinely inspect and replace all faulty parts and maintain the grounds.
To file a lawsuit for negligence, a plaintiff must prove:
- Someone else had a duty of care to keep the victim out of harm’s way,
- A person/company breached their duty of care,
- That breach caused the victim’s injuries, and
- The extent of the injuries the victim suffered.
Let’s examine several of the main reasons injuries can occur at theme parks:
New Jersey and Pennsylvania each have mandatory testing requirements. More than 1,000 state-trained engineers and inspectors regularly inspect the rides. Other states may vary, and that may be part of the problem at large.
People get hurt when inspectors and theme park workers do not follow ride maintenance protocol. Bolts may become loose and tracks may become rusted. This can be a recipe for disaster.
Damaged Walking Paths
Each year, many people are injured on broken or cracked walking paths. It is quite easy to fall on a sidewalk that has not been properly maintained and paved. Our legal team has seen a wide range of injuries from damaged walking paths. Broken bones, fractures, head injury, even wrongful death happen on damaged paths.
Unsafe Theme Park Rides
Many rides may be appealing but host a variety of problems. Although rides appear safe and are safety-tested, they still may be unsafe for certain riders and ages. Elderly and smaller riders may risk injury due to not fitting the seat and protection equipment.
Remedy For Theme Park Injury
Injuries happen. When a rider is injured at a theme park, they have the right to seek compensation for their injury. Consult an experienced lawyer to understand your options.
