By their very nature, many of the rides at an amusement park are intended to provoke an adrenaline rush. After all, the thrill of plunging down a water slide or racing through the corkscrew on a roller coaster ride is precisely what attracts people to theme parks. While visitors accept that a ride or attraction may appear scary, they trust that the ride is, in fact, safe. The vast majority of the time, theme park rides and attractions are safe; however, injury accidents do occur and can cause serious injury. Common theme park accident injuries include:
A theme park accident can happen at any time and a variety of factors may cause or contribute to the accident. Most of the time, however, an Orlando theme park accident is caused by one of the following:
When an accident occurs at an Orlando amusement park, several parties may be held legally liable for those injuries in a product liability, premises liability, or negligence lawsuit.
If a design defect or mechanical failure contributed to injuries sustained in a theme park accident, anyone involved in the “chain of distribution” may be liable for injuries. In a products liability lawsuit, defendants in the chain of distribution may be responsible for a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or a failure to adequately warn visitors.
When hazardous conditions on the property caused or contributed to an amusement park accident, the owner/occupier of the property may be held liable in a premises liability lawsuit. Because visitors to the property are there for the financial benefit of the owner, the owner is held to a duty of care under the law commensurate with the nature of the attraction and can be held legally liable for injuries that occur because of known hazardous conditions as well as hazardous conditions that the owner should have known about and repaired or addressed.
If operator error was responsible for a theme park accident, the owner of the park may be held accountable in a negligence lawsuit. The owner owes a general duty of reasonable care to visitors. If that duty of care is breached, the owner may be liable for injuries sustained in an accident. For example, if an employee was not properly trained or was distracted while operating a ride, that would likely be considered a breach of the duty of care owed to the visitor for which the theme park, as the employer, can be held legally responsible
When a theme park accident results in injuries or death, the victims often suffer physical and emotional injuries as well as financial hardship. When the victim is a British tourist on holiday, the victim is also faced with trying to understand the legal system of a foreign country to determine if they are entitled to compensation and, if so, from whom.
The Orlando theme park accident lawyers for British tourists at Bailey Fisher can help you navigate the legal system and pursue the compensation which you are entitled to for all your injuries and financial hardship. Typically, compensation may be available for your medical and hospital bills, lost income, psychological trauma, and travel expenses incurred because of your injuries.
For the surviving family member of someone killed in an Orlando amusement park accident, compensation may be available through a wrongful death lawsuit for things such as the loss of companionship, lost future income, and expenses related to the funeral and burial of your loved one.
When a much-anticipated holiday to an Orlando theme park turns into serious, even fatal, injuries, a British tourist often does not know where to turn for help.

Despite a veritable maze of local, state, and federal regulations designed to keep visitors to theme and amusement parks safe, about 30,000 people across the U.S. end up in emergency rooms each year as a result of an injury received while at a theme park.

Amusement park accident victims often suffer serious, even fatal, injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, neck and spinal cord injuries, fractured and broken bones, and injuries to internal organs. In addition, a victim frequently suffers serious psychological trauma following the incident, which may result in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or a phobia that was not present prior to the accident.
If negligent or wrongful conduct on the part of another party (such as the amusement park, the ride manufacturer, and/or the people responsible for keeping the ride operating safely) contributed to the accident, the victim may be entitled to compensation for these physical and emotional injuries. However, pursing compensation for an amusement park accident can be challenging because there are multiple potentially negligent parties.
Because of the challenges inherent in correctly identifying the responsible negligent parties, it is important to work with a Florida personal injury accident lawyer experienced in handling amusement park accident cases as soon as possible after the injury occurs. This will enable the lawyer to collect the evidence necessary to prove negligence.
