Jun 24, 2021 - Personal Injury

Florida is famous for some of its wonderful theme parks. Many people throughout the state of Florida visit these theme parks every year, and without issue. However, if you are someone who recently visited a theme park and sustained a serious injury due to no fault of your own, there is a very good chance that you are now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Please continue reading and speak with our seasoned Jacksonville personal injury lawyers to learn more about theme park accidents and how our legal team can help fight for the compensation you deserve after being injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of theme park accidents?

As you can imagine, there are several potential causes and types of theme park accidents. Some of the most common are as follows:

  • Food poisoning
  • Negligent security
  • Poorly designed rides/mechanical parts
  • Unsafe hotel conditions
  • Negligently trained ride operators
  • Failing to ensure all rides are safe
  • Negligently maintained premises
  • Swimming pool or water ride accidents

Who is responsible for a theme park accident?

After sustaining a serious injury in a theme park accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the facts surrounding the accident, as this information can help us determine the liable party. For example, if our firm can prove that the property owner or staff at the theme park either knew or should have known about the unsafe theme park conditions, failed to fix them, and you were injured as a result, there is a very good chance that we will file a premises liability claim. However, if we can prove that you were injured because of a defective ride or another piece of machinery, we will most likely file a product liability claim. Ensure you take legal action within the state’s statute of limitations, which is four years. Waiting any longer than four years from the date of your accident will most likely result in you losing your right to sue.
