Amusement Park Accidents in Florida

One of the joys of vacationing in Florida is sampling its different amusement parks. While many people think of Disney and Epcot when they think of amusement parks in Florida, there are many more amusement parks, theme parks and recreational activities that draw families and individuals for a fun outing.

Attractions in Florida include:

  • Sea World
  • Universal Studios
  • State fairs
  • Carnivals
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Busch Gardens
  • Blizzard Beach
  • Typhoon Lagoon
  • The Holyland Experience
  • Weeki Wachi Springs
  • Wannado City

The most common type of injury at an amusement park occurs in a slip, trip or fall accident. Typical causes of amusement park accidents include the following:

  • Inadequate braking or abrupt stopping of a ride
  • Improper assembly of an amusement ride
  • Poor maintenance of premises or rides
  • Faulty design
  • Rusted parts
  • Loose cables or other parts
  • Missing safety pins or other mechanisms
  • Malfunctioning lap or safety bars
  • Failing safety restraints
  • Broken or missing components of a structure
  • Exposed electrical wires

The injuries that you can suffer at an amusement park range from moderate to severe (such as a head trauma or brain injuries) to catastrophic and tragic. Lawsuits have been brought for food poisoning that was claimed to have ruptured someone’s esophagus and for the contraction of a rare blood disease from a bird show.

An experienced Fort Lauderdale attorney can examine the facts of your case and advise you whether it’s in your best interest to file an injury lawsuit seeking compensation.
