What causes most theme park injuries?

Here are a few common ways people find themselves injured in a theme park:

  • Mechanical or equipment failure – The operators may be unable to shut down the machine, part of the tracks may fail, or safety mechanisms may malfunction, leading to serious injuries.
  • Operator error – Roller coaster operators must know the ride’s height and weight limits, how to stop and start the ride, and how to evacuate if an emergency occurs. Unfamiliarity with these machines can lead to serious injury.
  • Age and machinery condition – All rides need regular inspections, especially those older than five years.

Florida laws about amusement and theme parks

Before you and your Orlando theme park accident attorney files a claim, you must understand the legal basis, including liability.

Premises Liability Law 

Florida’s premises liability and slip and fall laws state that property owners are responsible for their property’s maintenance, upkeep, and safety. This law includes all restaurants, facilities, and other areas within theme parks.

The Tyre Sampson Act

Introduced after Tyre Sampson’s tragic death at a Florida amusement park, this act imposes stricter regulations on amusement park safety.

Product Liability Laws 

In some cases, product defects may lead to injuries. For example, you may have been on a roller coaster correctly operated by the amusement park workers. Still, a poorly designed railing part may have led to a devastating injury. Manufacturers and property owners may share responsibility for ensuring safety.
