Orlando, Florida, is home to some of the most wonderful amusement parks in the country. Though these places are usually a fun getaway for the entire family, the unfortunate reality is that they are not always safe. If you are someone who has been injured in a theme park accident, you are most likely now seeking compensation to help you recover from your injuries. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Florida personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you.
What are some of the most common causes of theme park accidents?
Unfortunately, there are several potential causes of theme park accidents, though most of them go back to negligence. Some of the most frequent causes and types of theme park accidents can include poorly maintained rides, food poisoning, slip-and-fall accidents, failing to train ride operators, hotel accidents, including poor hotel safety conditions, animal bites, and more.
Who is liable for theme park injuries?
This is a tricky question, which is why it is always best to hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the theme park injuries claims process. For example, in many cases, if your attorney determines the theme park staff, employers, or property owners caused the accident, you will file a premises liability lawsuit against them. However, if, on the other hand, your attorney ascertains that the theme park ride or equipment was either improperly designed, manufactured, or labeled, you may have a valid product liability lawsuit. No matter the party responsible, you will need an experienced attorney on your side who can gather and present evidence on your behalf to win you the compensation you deserve.
How long do I have to sue a theme park in Florida?
In Florida, individuals have a certain amount of time to take legal action against theme parks–this timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is four years, individuals are granted four years from the date their accident to sue the negligent party. That being said, the sooner you bring your case to our attention, the better. We are ready to help you–all you have to do is ask.
