Causes of Theme Park Accidents
In order for you to have a safe and fun time at a theme park, the park has to provide structures that are sound and stable and maintain operational protocols that are properly observed. That’s why they have operators at every ride. It is to ensure the smooth and safe operation of the attractions at the theme park.
Injuries can happen just about anywhere and more often than not, they happen for the following types of reasons:
- There may be an issue with the mechanics of an attraction. Cables could break. The ride could become stock. The seatbelts and restraints can have issues and fail. And the brakes on the attraction can have failed which leaves people in a world of hurt if this causes an accident and injury.
Do You Need Legal Help?
- If a structure were to fail because of corrosion or otherwise, the injuries for that can be catastrophic.
- There are also issues with human errors such as mistakes made by the operator. If you were not given enough space in between departures on an attraction, then there can be issues with safety that cause an accident. If you were not properly restrained into an attraction and you had an accident that way, it can be absolutely tragic. Other errors that someone might make include not engaging safety features or not stopping the rides properly.
- Other types of injuries that we see happen because of a collision with an attraction or other people or vehicles on the scene of a theme park. People have been known to be thrown from rides and swings or slides. If the riots have a poor design and even if someone’s wearing all the proper restraints, hazardous injuries can happen.
- In some cases, it’s because of the choices that people make when they arrive at a theme park. Faking someone’s height or not listening to safety warnings, such as going on a ride not meant for someone with heart conditions, can cause someone to have issues.
- If there was a water park that had inflatable devices that don’t involve any restraints and people get hurt in those attractions, we see these types of cases a lot. Especially if people are not warrant of the safety risks before they get on this attraction.
If you are unsure whether or not you have a case, we hope you reach out to our Orlando theme park accident lawyers today to set up a free consultation and get to know your rights.
Regulations for Theme Parks
Florida has regulations for amusement parks and theme parks such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, etc. This is meant to keep you safe in a world where profit is valued over safety sometimes. When rules and regulations are ignored and people get hurt, then liable parties must be held accountable, which we are dedicated to doing for you as Orlando theme park accident lawyers.
Unfortunately, if you were injured at a theme park or amusement park such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens or Sea World and you get hurt badly, then you need to understand that these places have an exemption from having to submit an accident report or conduct an investigation. This might make our case difficult, but it’s nothing that we are not familiar with.
Rest assured we know what we are doing when it comes to handling these cases and providing you with the justice that you need. When you suffer an injury in a theme park, it is often due to negligence and carelessness, as well as ignoring safety rules and regulations. While they might make it harder for us to actually win this case, we will not let that hold us up in our fight for your justice at all.
Reporting Your Accident at Universal Studios
If you suffered an injury at Universal Studios, you are going to have to deal with the aftermath of the event and have to document your accident and injury. If you are not in mortal peril after your accident, you likely have time to address making a report. Keep in mind, however, that this is still a very busy place and trying to stop the running of the park to address you and your injuries can be challenging.
Let’s say, for example, while you were on a ride you got a huge cut on your arm because of a protruding edge on an attraction and, while you aren’t bleeding to death, it is a serious cut and you’d like to get some proof of this sharp edge that you got hurt on. Trying to get this evidence in an amusement park like Universal Studios can prove to be pretty challenging when they are trying to continue to run people through the attraction like business as usual.
That’s when we come in to help you with the challenging part of your case. Essentially, our Orlando theme park accident lawyers want to help you make this all easier. Every step of your case should be smoother because you had a lawyer by your side. We want you to call as soon as you possibly can to set up a free, first consultation to address your accident and any possible liable parties that may have been involved in you having this injury that you now need to suffer through. We can help you with evidence collection and ultimately fight for results that are fair.
When we determine your results, they are going to be based on what happened to you and the accident you were involved in. Our Orlando theme park accident lawyers are going to be thoroughly investigating the incident that happened to you to try to find out what your legal rights are. We are going to see some hang-ups because of the nature of the accident. You were hurt at a theme park and oftentimes that means a big one like Universal Studios that might have a strong defense for these types of cases.
Depending on what happened to you at the theme park, whether it was an injury that happened on a ride that required extreme medical intervention or a milder incident, your compensation will be based upon those facts. More often than not you are going to be seeking compensation for medical bills and expenses. These can create very significant financial losses after an accident.
The pain and suffering that you feel after your accident is also a huge factor in your compensation award after an accident at a theme park or amusement park. These are your damages and we will fight against even the largest of insurance companies to provide you with results that are as fair as we can possibly make them. Even if we are going up against a huge insurance company that represents a place like Universal Studios, we want you to have fair results.
You might seek compensation for reasons besides pain and suffering, as well. We have seen a lot of people include in cases like this the value of the wages they lost if they had to miss work to recover from their injuries. It can be an especially significant loss when injuries occur out of town and you can’t get home to get to your job until you are recovered enough to travel. If you suffered a permanent damage that leaves you unable to work after this, then we want to pursue the damages for that as well.
You can receive compensation, too, for both past and future damages. If you are going to be living with any of the previously mentioned damages for quite some time or even forever, then we want you to be able to see that reflected in your results.
Our Orlando theme park accident lawyers are dedicated to being able to provide you with this compensation for all the financial and physical damages you’ve had to suffer. We are here for you, even if it is a challenging fight.

If you have suffered a serious injury at a theme park, we want to hear from you right away. Too many people have been injured because of the negligence and carelessness of theme parks
“In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”
