More Theme Park Injuries In Florida: When Will They Stop?
Florida is known for its many theme parks, and millions of visitors each year enjoy these theme parks without any real issues. But there are always a few individuals who suffer considerable injuries while riding various attractions, and these victims are fully within their rights to sue. Theme park companies like to dismiss these events as freak accidents, but even a single injured elderly lady is a sign of negligence. A deceased child is much more than that – it’s a sign of a real hazard that needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, theme park injuries continue at a fairly rapid pace in Florida.
If you have been injured at a theme park in Orlando, get in touch with a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney at your earliest convenience. With help from one of these lawyers, you can strive for the best possible results in a highly efficient manner. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various legal options as you strive for fair, adequate compensation. Due to the statute of limitations, you could lose your ability to sue if you wait too long. This is why it’s so important to take legal action as soon as possible after your injury.
Disney World Sued for Negligence
While Disney World faces lawsuits on a fairly regular basis, one of the most recent filings had to do with an accident that occurred at the Disney World Hotel. The victim was a woman who apparently fell while inside the hotel. Her injury was quite serious, and it required knee surgery. Apparently, she was attending her daughter’s dance competition at the time, and she fell on a “hazardous cord” which was left in a “poorly secured” manner. The fall was described in the lawsuit as “violent” and it apparently caused “permanent” damage. This individual is seeking $30,000 in damages, which is admittedly quite a low sum.
So could she win? Provided she can prove that Disney neglected to carry out proper safety checks, there’s no reason why she can’t emerge with $30,000. Disney’s job will be to prove that it conducted regular safety checks prior to the fall, and that the accident was not foreseeable under reasonable circumstances.
About a month prior, Disney World was sued after a guest was struck by someone riding an electric scooter. The victim was standing in line when she was hit from behind, and she argues that the person operating the scooter should never have been allowed to zoom about in such a reckless, dangerous manner.
