Causes of Theme Park Accidents
Much of the Orlando area is comprised of theme parks, as they must accommodate and provide entertainment for millions of guests each year. Ensuring the safety of each and every guest is a major component of working at a theme park and while staff typically does its best, things may still fall through the cracks trying to manage such a large park. There are many possible causes of theme park accidents. Some of the injury cases that our firm handles involve the following issues:
- Failure of mechanical parts on rides
- Inadequate security
- Inadequately trained ride operators
- Failure to maintain rides
- Food poisoning
- Hotel accidents

Who is Liable? The Property Owner vs. Ride Manufacturer?
In a theme park accident case, you will be required to prove liability of the negligent party. It can be challenging to determine exactly who is liable, depending on your situation. Typically, the property owner is liable for any accidents you have on their property. If you were injured on a ride in the park, however, you may have the challenge of determining whether the property owner is liable or if the manufacturer of the ride should be held responsible. If there was a defective product that caused the ride to malfunction, ultimately resulting in your injury, they may be the ones who are responsible. In a situation like this, you may be facing a product liability case. An experienced attorney from Florida Personal Injury Law Team will be able to assess your situation and determine exactly who is responsible for your accident.
If you have been seriously injured in a theme park accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation, which is also referred to as damages. Damages can be recovered for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that you have faced as a result of your accident. Economic damages may include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, the need to hire in-home assistance, and more. Noneconomic damages may include compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
