Fort Lauderdale Lawyers Assist Victims of Theme Park Accidents
Representing those injured at theme parks, amusement parks, water parks and zoos
From Busch Gardens to Epcot, SeaWorld to the Magic Kingdom Park, Universal Orlando to Walt Disney World, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom to Legoland, theme parks, amusement parks, water parks and zoos draw huge crowds throughout the state of Florida. While amusement parks are a desirable destination for tourists everywhere, their extensive grounds, rides, water slides, animals and other attractions are full of possibility for an accident to occur.
Our personal injury lawyers at Boone and Davis, PA represent Florida residents and tourists from around the world who are injured in theme park accidents caused by the negligence of park owners and operators, construction companies, park employees, visitors and others.
Types of accidents that may occur at theme parks
Using their legal knowledge and skills developed over more than 30 years in practice, our dedicated attorneys help victims of all types of amusement park accidents, including:
- Unsafe rides: Rides may be unsafe because they are poorly designed, poorly constructed or negligently maintained, because they lack adequate warnings or instructions, or because they are negligently operated. For example, they might have improperly calibrated cables, malfunctioning motors or failed safety belts. Equipment used in rides may be defective, resulting in manufacturer liability. Water rides may also cause accidents because of water overflow that causes slips and fall accidents, or because of inadequate safety precautions that cause drownings.
- Slip and fall accidents: Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents can occur for any number of reasons, including uneven pavement, negligent maintenance, wet paint, the use of slippery cleaning products without appropriate warnings, spills, water rides overflowing onto slick pavement, loose wiring, debris, uncovered holes or construction. If you have been injured in a trip or slip and fall accident at a theme park, our attorneys may be able to help you recover compensation from the negligent parties through a premises liability lawsuit.
- Zoo accidents: In addition to property conditions that may cause falls, drownings or other injuries, many zoo accidents are caused by animal attacks. When enclosures are unsafely designed, lack warnings or fall short of legal requirements, or when employees fail to follow safety precautions, zoo animals may cause serious injuries to visitors.
Types of injuries that can be sustained
When an amusement park accident occurs, you or a loved one may suffer serious, long-lasting injuries. Falls and unsafe rides may cause whiplash and other serious back and neck injuries, head injuries, lacerations, amputation injuries and broken bones. Animal attacks at zoos and theme parks may result in scarring and disfigurement, and even in fatal injuries. At Boone and Davis, we understand how painful and traumatic it is to suffer severe injuries at any time, but especially when you are on vacation at an amusement park. Using our years of experience and resources, including our network of engineering, financial, medical and vocational experts, we thoroughly investigate your accident, help you determine who is at fault and guide you through your personal injury claim to obtain the compensation you deserve.
