How do most theme park accidents happen?

- Unsafe hotel conditions
- Insufficiently trained ride or theme park operators
- Food poisoning
- Animal bites
- Negligent security
- Negligently designed or manufactured rides/ride parts
- Failure to maintain all rides and every other amenity on their premises
- Swimming pool or other water-related accidents

Determining the Liable Party
After someone sustains an injury in any sort of accident, it is critical that they document the facts surrounding the incident, as our firm can use this evidence to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. Some of the best forms of evidence include pictures of the accident, videos of the accident, medical documents pertaining to the injuries you sustained in the accident, a copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident, and more. From here we will have to determine whether we will file a product liability claim or a premises liability claim. If we can prove that the property owner/staff knew or should have known about an unsafe condition, failed to fix it, and you were injured as a result, we will file a premises liability claim. If you were injured because of a poorly designed or negligently manufactured product, there is a very good chance that we will instead file a product liability claim.
Ensure that you file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, generally, four years, meaning you will have to file your personal injury claim within four years of the date of your accident.
