Amusement Park Accident Attorneys

Millions of people visit amusement parks in the U.S. Given this heavy traffic, you would think that the strictest of safety standards would be in place to keep visitors safe. However, some states don’t even have safety regulations for amusement park rides.  Amusement park attraction owners, manufacturers, and operators have a responsibility to ensure their rides are reasonably safe and don’t harm patrons.

In Georgia, premises liability law allows patrons of amusement parks and carnivals to hold the owners and operators of such places responsible for injuries and even wrongful death arising from dangerous rides. Under the law, operators of such theme parks have the obligation to act reasonably to protect their customers safe from dangerous conditions, including rides that they know are dangerous and likely to cause injuries or death.

If you or a loved one was injured in an amusement park accident, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the attraction’s owners, operators, or manufacturers.

tips to take after an
amuzement park accident

An experienced personal injury lawyer would advise that you obtain professional legal help after a park accident. To protect your rights, follow these tips if you sustain an injury at an amusement park.

It’s important that the employees of the park can bring you medical attention as soon as possible. If the injury is serious, you may be taken to a hospital off the premises of the park.

Many parks have medical staff on hand that can treat your injuries. It’s important to deny this medical care. Failure to accept care may weaken your case against a park later, as it could be argued that this decision led to the worsening of your condition.

If a park employee begins to attempt to negotiate with you in any manner, you should hold off until you can speak to a professional. Cutting any sort of deal with park representatives on your own is not advisable, as you may end up shorting yourself of the help you’ll really need.

Victims of theme park injuries often have a very long road to recovery. The medical bills associated with these injuries can be quite steep. Therefore,  it’s essential for any injured individual to seek the help of a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an incident.

How to Prove Amusement Park Negligence

There are three elements to negligence, and we have to prove all three to hold the park responsible for your injuries. These factors are:

  • The amusement park had a legal duty of care toward you.
    The reason that you were on the property will determine how careful the facility had to be. For example, the park has to take more steps to protect an invitee or licensee than a trespasser.
  • The park breached its duty of care to you.
    Failing to meet one’s standard of care is negligence.
  • The facility’s negligence caused you to suffer measurable harm.
    The carelessness of the park must be what caused your accident. Also, the park is not liable for a “near miss” or “close call,” even if the park was negligent. You must sustain a physical injury to hold the facility responsible.
