AMUSEMENT PARK ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

AMUSEMENT PARK ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Amusement Parks and Theme Parks are becoming increasingly popular, with more springing up every day all over the country.  There is pressure to make the rides more and more exciting to compete with other parks, they are creating “extreme rides” which are increasingly dangerous.  When there are accidents at amusement parks, they are often claims for catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.

Amusement Park Accident Attorney attorneys Wittenstein & Wittenstein have been helping injured people for more than 60 years.  We have the experience necessary to hold the responsible parties liable for negligence when they cause serious injuries.  We have the resources and knowledge to obtain the greatest amount of compensation possible under the law.

Some parks are safer than others.  Common sense dictates that a more well-established high-end park is safer, and statistically, this is true.  Traveling fairs are the most dangerous, and there is substantial wear and tear on the rides from setting them up and taking them down, and the quality and training of the staff is not as high.  Disneyworld, Disneyland and Great Adventure have the highest standards.

TYPICAL CAUSES OF AMUSEMENT PARK, THEME PARK AND WATER PARK ACCIDENTS

  • Failure to post warnings about dangerous conditions
  • Slip and Fall accidents on poorly maintained walkways
  • Negligent operation of rides
  • Malfunctioning lap bars or safety restraints
  • Exposed wiring
  • Mechanical failures
  • Structural damage to rides
  • Missing or damaged safety equipment
  • Improper assembly
  • Improper or insufficient maintenance

You need an amusement park accident attorney that has experience with this type of case to help you get compensation for your present and future medical bills, lost earnings, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering and out of pocket expenses resulting from the accident.

TYPICAL AMUSEMENT PARK ACCIDENT INJURIES

THEORIES OF LIABILITY

Like all owners and operators of property, amusement parks are subject to premises liability, and are responsible for any dangerous conditions on their property.  They are also liable for negligence for negligent hiring and training of their staff.  A product liability claim can be made if it can be shown that even with inspection and maintenance the design of the ride was so poor that it is “inherently dangerous.”  A wrongful death claim arises if the injuries sustained result in a fatality.  These complicated intersections of law require an experienced amusement park accident attorney to navigate successfully to hold the responsible parties liable for their negligence.
