Tampa Amusement Park Injury Lawyer

While most attendees leave an amusement park with a smile on their face, not all do. If you or your child were seriously injured at an amusement park, fair or mobile amusement park, water park, or any other venue that operated mechanical rides, you may be entitled to compensation. Amusement parks are liable for a victim’s damages in many cases, and a Tampa amusement park injury lawyer at The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. can help you hold the appropriate party accountable.

Amusement Parks Owe a Duty of Care

Chances are that if you reach out to the amusement park directly, which we strongly encourage you not to do, the amusement park will claim that the injuries you sustained are not the park’s responsibility due to the fact that you signed a release of liability upon entrance. This, of course, is not true if the amusement park breached its duty of care to you, and that breach led to an injury. While it may or may not be true that you signed a release of liability, amusement parks—like all other entities and individuals in our society—owe a certain degree of care to others. This is true of drivers on the interstate, business owners, and amusement parks. By proving that the amusement park was negligent in its duties, you may be able to recover fair compensation for your damages.

Examples of Negligence at Amusement Parks

Millions of Americans visit amusement parks every year, placing their lives in the hands of ride operators, ride manufacturers, and amusement park owners. An attendee who suffers an injury caused by negligence has the right to seek compensation through the civil courts, which includes filing a personal injury claim, and often a lawsuit, demanding fair payment for their damages. Examples of amusement park negligence includes:

  • Negligent ride operator
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Lack of safety training
  • Mechanical failure
  • Structural damage to the ride
  • Failure to assemble rides correctly
  • Failure to maintain rides
  • Damaged or defective safety restraints
  • Failure to close safety restraints
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Failure to check heights of children
  • Slip and fall hazards

Damages Caused in an Amusement Park Accident

Damages from an amusement park accident may include economic damages and non economic damages. Economic damages have a real “price tag,” as they represent the direct financial burden placed on you because of the accident. This includes medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and more. Non economic damages usually account for a significant portion of a personal injury claim, despite not being associated with a specific financial burden. Non economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of joy of life, and emotional distress.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
