Personal injury claims and Florida's theme parks

Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, among others, provide hours and days of fun for tourists and Florida residents alike. While thousands of people visit these parks each year without incident, injuries do occur, and some of them can be serious. If you suffered injuries at one of the state's theme parks, you may be able to pursue restitution through the filing of a personal injury claim.

Even when the parks diligently keep the rides maintained and in good working order, accidents still happen due to a variety of reasons. Florida does not require its theme parks to report every injury that occurs. Only accidents involving hospitalization for more than 24 hours (unless strictly for observation) or deaths must be reported.

The injuries you suffer could require you to need ongoing treatment and, perhaps, physical therapy. In addition, the trauma could also affect you mentally and emotionally. During your recovery, you will more than likely incur a significant amount of medical and other expenses. Whether you can recover restitution for those expenses and other damages depends on the circumstances surrounding your injuries.

You may need some help to discern whether your circumstances warrant the filing of a personal injury claim. You would more than likely benefit from understanding your rights under the law and what damages you could seek if a claim is appropriate in your circumstances. If a claim is filed, successfully establishing that your injuries were the result of negligence could result in an award of damages that may defray your current and future financial losses associated with your injuries.
