Sea World Accident Lawyer in California

SeaWorld amusement parks have for generations been among the most popular attractions in America. With parks located in Tampa Bay, Orlando, Williamsburg, and of course San Diego, the franchise attracts millions of visitors each year.

Accidents at amusement parks are reported in the news fairly frequently, yet SeaWorld wouldn’t strike most people as being a particularly dangerous place. Yet there have been many incidents at the parks over the years resulting in serious injury and even death, to both visitors and employees. Truth is, anytime you have an attraction where people gather in large numbers, especially when there are potentially dangerous rides and animals, the potential for an accident resulting in a serious injury or death is higher than usual. If you or someone you know has been injured in a Sea World accident, the personal injury lawyers of the Johnson Attorneys Group are here to help you get the compensation you deserve, with no fees unless we win or settle your case.

Types of SeaWorld Accidents

Incidents involving death or injury at the various Sea World locations have typically involved existing medical conditions or equipment malfunction, though sometimes Mother Nature steps in too. Many visitors have suffered heart attacks on rides or due to hot weather. Others have been seriously hurt by malfunctioning rides, and a few have been hit by lighting. Several employees have been killed by the famous killer whales, with one whale, Tilikum, causing three fatalities. In 1979 at the San Diego SeaWorld a visitor was shot and killed by a security guard in what was ruled a justified shooting. 

These types of injuries, besides the heart attacks, are usually blunt trauma, and often serious head injuries. In the spring and summer of 2017 alone there were at least eight reported injuries and deaths at amusement parks and water parks across the nation, including California.

California SeaWorld Accident Laws

When an accident happens in California involving injury, property damage, or death, the court will hold someone liable for the accident or may decide that the parties involved will share a percentage of liability. Negligence can be shown if it can be proven that a party could or should have known an accident could happen. In amusement and water parks, this negligence often involves a failure to maintain rides and equipment or allowing an unsafe condition to exist that could have been rectified.

What Type of Compensation Is Available?

If you have been injured due to the negligence of a person or a corporation, you are entitled to compensation for damages, including medical treatment and ongoing care, including hospital, emergency room, and doctor visits, for any physical and/or mental damage you may have suffered, for any damages to personal property, and for lost wages and for estimated future earnings you will lose because of your injury. There may also be punitive damages awarded to punish the negligent party. Compensation can be significant, which is why you should contact a personal injury lawyer right away after an accident

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
