What are the most common causes of theme park accidents?
There are many potential causes of theme park accidents, though unfortunately, they are almost always due to some form of negligence. Some of the most common causes of theme park accidents are as follows:
- Hotel accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Animal bites
- Slip and falls
- Defective mechanical parts
- Not maintaining rides
- Food poisoning
- Absent or insufficient security
- Negligently trained ride operators
Who is responsible for a theme park accident?
If you are injured at a theme park, your attorney will have to determine the liable party. For example, if your attorney can prove that you were injured due to the negligent design or manufacturing of a certain ride, you will most likely file a product liability lawsuit. However, if your attorney can prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe conditions, failed to take action to fix them, and that you were seriously injured as a result, you will most likely file a premises liability lawsuit. Our experienced Orlando personal injury attorney can take you through every step of the process ahead.
How long do I have to sue for a theme park accident?
The state of Florida has a statute of limitations in place that dictates the amount of time the wrongly injured have to file a lawsuit. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, generally, four years, you will, generally, have four years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. That being said, the sooner you bring your claim to our firm’s attention, the sooner we can help you. We are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve today. All you have to do is ask.
