Central Florida Theme Park Accident Attorneys
WERE YOU HURT AT A FLORIDA AMUSEMENT PARK?
Chad Barr Law Can Help
We all love the theme parks in Florida. They’re some of the main sources of both entertainment and tourism in our state. Millions of people walk through the gates every year. Unfortunately, some of those guests are injured during what should have been a fun and happy day.
Amusement Parks have several rules, regulations, policies, and procedures to keep their guests safe. When the employees fail to follow those practices, guests can get hurt and end up with severe and even life-changing injuries. In 2016 there were over 30,000 people treated in emergency rooms due to injuries sustained on amusement park rides.
If you or a loved one were injured while at one of Florida’s theme parks, then you should contact an injury lawyer experienced in handling these types of accidents. The attorneys of Chad Barr Law have handled cases with amusement parks and have helped our clients receive the compensation they deserve.
Some common Amusement Park injuries include:
Many theme park rides jerk the riders back and forth and sideways, usually at high speeds. Of course, this is thrilling most of the time, unfortunately, it can also ravage your spine and internal organs if you’re in the wrong position or improperly restrained.
- Broken Bones
- Scratches, scrapes, bumps, bruises
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Head and neck injuries
- Soft tissue damage
- Drowning (on water rides)
People have also been known to experience strokes, heart attacks, and even brain aneurysms as the result of more stressful rides.
Compensation May Be Available if You Were Injured at a Florida Theme Park
If theme park employees don’t follow the protocols they’re supposed to, or if the park’s management isn’t ensuring those procedures are adhered to, then they may be found responsible for the injuries. In that case, they would also be responsible for the cost of any recovery.
Those costs typically include:
- Lost Wages
- Physical Therapy Costs
- Medical Expenses
What to do if You’re Injured at a Florida Amusement Park
If you’re injured while attending one of Florida’s Amusement Parks, then you need to make sure you’re health is your top priority. For your health and well-being, you need to make sure to you:
- Seek immediate medical attention.
- Follow your physicians’ orders and recommendations including any and all follow-up appointments.
- Document your treatment and keep copies of all bills and medical records.
- Contact an experienced and qualified Amusement Park Injury Lawyer.
It may take several days and even weeks for the symptoms of some theme park injuries to appear. That is why it is important to seek out medical attention immediately to document the injury and your medical treatment even if you are not immediately experiencing pain or other warnings signs.
Reasons to Hire an Experienced Florida Amusement Park Lawyer
When an Amusement Park is responsible for an injury to one of their guests, they will ask their insurance company to handle the claim. To protect the park’s interest and its reputation they will typically try to shift the blame to the injured person. Rarely will they accept responsibility for what happened.
While their goal will be to dismiss the injury and any legal proceedings that follow, the job of your Amusement Park Injury Attorney is to make sure the park is held responsible for its actions. That’s why it is important to contact and hire a lawyer experienced in dealing with the theme parks, their insurance companies, and the lawyers they hire.
