What Happened in Walt Disney World 

On March 23rd, it was reported that a woman had filed a $100,000 lawsuit against Disney World for an injury she had sustained in a pool. This incident apparently occurred all the way back in 2019, when the woman was using the sandcastle water slide at the resort pool. For whatever reason, the slide caused her to smash into the water at high velocity, and she impacted the floor of the pool with considerable force. This left her with a “severe left ankle injury.” Apparently, this woman has been forced to undergo extensive surgery to repair several torn ligaments. The lawsuit also claims that even after the surgery, she was diagnosed with “chronic regional pain syndrome” as a result of the accident.

Why Was Disney World to Blame? 

The plaintiff argues that Disney World was negligent in allowing residents to use such a dangerous slide. The plaintiff also suggests that the theme park had a duty to evaluate the safety of the slide and maintain it if necessary. Perhaps most crucially, they argue that the theme park “knew or should have known” that the hazard existed.

Specifically, the plaintiff argues that the theme park essentially allowed too much water to flow through the slide, increasing the speed of its users to a dangerous level. They also claim that the theme park failed to maintain the depth of the catch pool and failed to “have a proper angle for the exit flume.” Finally, they point out that the theme park failed to instruct the plaintiff on the proper body position and failed to publish warning signs about the proper body position recommended for users.
