COMMON AREAS OF POTENTIAL LIABILITY
Amusement rides, slides, and activities range widely in terms of size, speed, height, g-forces, intensity, and intended audience. Riders range widely in terms of age, height, weight, mental ability, developmental maturity, and their ability to understand the forces.
While these factors contribute to the excitement of thrill rides, they also combine to create very real dangers for certain groups of people – most notably small children.
Additionally, some rides may have mechanical defects or inadequate safety features while other ride may not provide necessary warnings of safety risks.
Some common areas of neglect that can contribute to a serious injury while on an amusement park ride include:
- Sharp metallic edges on rollercoaster cars and carriages
- Cables that are loose or malfunctioning
- Improper operation of equipment (due to misbehavior or lack of training)
- Absence of warning notice signs
- Insufficient lighting
- Exposed wiring and short circuits
- Lack of equipment maintenance
If you have been injured for any of these reasons, you may have a valid personal injury claim.
HOW A LAWYER CAN HELP YOU
After an injury-causing incident has taken place, many victims and their families are unsure of what to do next.
In many instances, the victim will be contacted by a representative of the amusement park to discuss the nature of the injury and the incident overall.
This person is often an insurance company representative that has been sent by the insurer of the amusement park with one goal, to avoid having to pay any damages to the victim. Furthermore, they are often very persistent and will push for the victim to sign documentation that may waive any claim to compensation.
At the law offices of O’Connor, Acciani and Levy, we are aware of the tactics that insurance companies use and can help to protect you and your family from their advances.
We work quickly to resolve your damages claim and build a robust argument to obtain the maximum damages amount for your lawsuit.
