What are the most common causes of theme park accidents?
Unfortunately, there are several ways in which theme park accidents could occur. Some of the most common causes and types of theme park accidents in Florida are as follows:
- Unsafe hotel conditions
- Lack of security
- Food poisoning
- Swimming pool accidents
- Water ride accidents
- Animal bites
- Negligent ride operators
- Poorly designed/manufactured rides
- Neglecting to ensure theme parks and rides are safe before opening them to the public
Who is responsible for a theme park accident?
After a theme park accident, our Florida personal injury lawyer will have to determine the liable party. For example, if we determine that the property owner/staff either knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to fix it, injuring you as a result, we will most likely file a premises liability claim. That being said, if we can prove that you were injured due to an unsafely designed or produced theme park ride, we will most likely file a product liability claim.
To win a personal injury claim, we will have to satisfy the burden of proof. This means that we will have to gather and present evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful types of evidence include pictures of the accident, videos of the accident, witness statements, and medical documents regarding any injuries sustained in the accident.
