Amusement Park Accidents
There’s no question that you can have a lot of fun at a California amusement park, but what happens when something goes terribly wrong? The answer will depend on the steps you take afterwards.
Your injury case can take one of two directions. You can take up the matter yourself with the management at the amusement park where you were hurt or you can get hire an experience California injury attorney to represent you. Either way, you must report your injuries immediately to the theme park immediately when it happens.
If you chose the first option and try to handle it on your own, the amusement park’s team will likely be judge and jury and determine what your case is worth if anything. Most of the time they will pin the blame on you. An attorney, on the other hand, will only take on your case if they think you have a good chance of winning. If that’s the case, you will have their knowledge, expertise and depth of experience behind you to ensure the best possible recovery. The lawyer will also identify all parties responsible for your injuries including the ride manufacturer if that’s the case.
“Theme parks will only pay you money to make you go away, but they will never willingly pay you what you deserve to make you whole,” said Attorney James Johnson. “People hurt on rides and at theme parks can have serious or permanent injuries, but legal precedents show that getting Disneyland, Sea World, Knott’s Berry Farm or Magic Mountain to admit they are at fault is near impossible.”
California’s 12 billion amusement park and entertainment industry employs more than 125,000 people, according to statistics reported by the California Attractions and Parks Association in Sacramento. It is a lucrative business and these companies spend millions of dollars ensuring the safety of their guests. They also employ an extensive legal team that will fight you every step of the way to make sure they are not publicly blamed for your injuries and losses. They will never admit that human error, lapses in safety protocol or mechanical problems were the real cause of an injury.
Indeed, in one recent case, an employee and guest at California’s Great America amusement park were both injured in June last year when a roller coaster on the Flight Deck struck the worker. The employee was hospitalized with traumatic injuries and the person riding in a car on the rollover coaster suffered a hand injury.
Amusement park owners take many precautions to ensure the safety of their guests. In fact, Disney parks have banned the use of selfie sticks on rides at its many theme parks. They will even shut down a ride if they see someone using one. Back in June 2015, they did just that. A guest pulled out a selfie stick and they temporarily shut down the California Screamin’ roller coaster.
