Amusement Park Accident
Amusement and theme parks are common in Los Angeles and throughout California, a state that is a popular destination for vacationers across the U.S., and around the world. Unfortunately, serious or even fatal injuries can be the result of riding rides or participating in activities you anticipate to be fun or exciting. At The Justice Firm, our Los Angeles amusement park accident attorneys are dedicated to protecting your rights and securing justice. Medical costs and other expenses can be overwhelming; we fight aggressively to ensure you recover the full damages you deserve.
In most cases, amusement park injuries occur due to accidents that fall into one of the following categories:
- Inadequately maintained equipment, negligence on the part of the ride operator or on the part of the park
- A visitor has health issues that are known or unknown to park operators or ride attendants
- Guest or visitor negligence, such as refusal to follow park rules or ride safety instructions
- A general accident such as slipping and/or falling
The majority of rides are indeed safe, and the excitement and anticipation of riding a ride that provides an adrenalin rush or is even a bit frightening is what draws many people to these theme parks. However, nearly every year people are seriously injured on amusement park rides or while participating in water park activities - some even lose their lives. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious amusement park injury, we urge you to contact an Orange County personal injury lawyer with our firm immediately.Los Angeles Amusement Park Accident Lawyers Fighting on Behalf of Victims
Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disneyland, Los Angeles Skydiving, Griffith Park & Southern Railroad - there are countless amusement and theme parks in the LA area designed for the enjoyment of those on vacation, and for residents of the area. Unfortunately, innocent people sometimes have a tragic or unexpected experience that results in serious or fatal injuries. Whether you have sustained injuries or a loved one lost his or her life in a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, or other accident, it is vital to consult with a dedicated LA amusement park accident attorney immediately.
While most visitors to amusement parks in California never expect it, a visit while on vacation can result in catastrophe. Defective design in rides, operator error, mechanical failure, inadequate maintenance, a defect in the design of a ride, inappropriate supervision by ride operators, or even equipment which may malfunction including safety restraints or lap bars can end in tragedy. In the case of water parks, a visitor may suffer injuries because of a lack of safety equipment, lifeguards who are inattentive or not sufficiently trained, or even drain or filter replacement by those who are not adequately trained and/or qualified.
We realize that summer months are a time that many people enjoy going on vacation. The weather is warm, the kids are out of school, and parents often enjoy a vacation so that they can get away from the office and the stresses of everyday life. Unfortunately, a visit to a amusement, theme, or water park in Los Angeles can end in tragedy, although you never expect it. If someone in your family is seriously injured, the costs include not only medical expenses, but lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and even future income and medical costs depending on the severity of your injuries and future treatment needs. Without fair compensation, you can find yourself and your family facing financial ruin because of someone else's negligence. Don't let this happen to you!Contact The Justice Firm Now
