Amusement Park Injuries
From the rides themselves to the walkways to the restaurants, amusement parks present a lot of opportunities for you and your family to get injured. We recently blogged about a lawsuit against Knott's Berry Farm over a malfunctioning ride that caused injuries to multiple children. Injuries can range from somewhat minor to death. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may have a viable case against the amusement park. Here's a look at some of the legal theories your personal injury case may rest on:
- Negligence: An amusement park makes money off of their visitors and because of that they also owe them a duty of care related to the safety and upkeep of their park. When that duty is not met, their negligence can be the source (or partial source) for injuries and deaths for which they should be held financially responsible for.
- Premises Liability: Premises liability cases refer to those injuries and death that occur when there is an unsafe (known or should have known) of the property that causes an accident. Amusement park premises liability examples include falls on uneven sidewalks, or not keeping a ride in a safe condition.
- Product Liability: Was there a feature of a ride that caused an injury or death? For some amusement parks (particularly those that are "pop-up" style) the ride manufacturer might be a different entity from the group putting on the amusement park, in which case you might have multiple defendants.
So what do you do if you or a loved one was injured at an amusement park? Of course your attention should be on getting better-- physically and emotionally. During this recovery period it is also important that you get in touch with Walch Law immediately to begin discussing your legal options. You do not want to take a low ball settlement offer from the amusement park-- those are designed to make you quickly go away and may not take into account the full extent of your injuries. And you also do not want to wait too long and completely miss the statute of limitations and your opportunity to file a lawsuit.

We know you don't want to be dealing with anything legal in the wake of an injury which is why we take care of everything for you while keeping you constantly updated on your case as we go.
