Theme Park Accidents
What to Do if You’re Injured at a Theme Park
Florida is home to more top theme parks, amusement parks, water parks and other attractions than anywhere else on earth, including the iconic Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, Legoland Florida Resort and SeaWorld theme parks in the Orlando area, Busch Gardens in Tampa, and many smaller amusement parks and attractions. These Florida attractions draw millions of visitors each year from around the world and are an important economic driver for the state, bringing in billions of dollars in revenue.
Florida’s Bureau of Fair Rides Inspections reports that the state has 180 permanent amusement parks and over 200 traveling amusement companies. The largest theme parks employ more than 1,000 people and must have full-time inspectors on staff.
Although it’s not required legally for parks to report accidents that result in injury, many parks are fairly transparent. However, it’s uncertain how many injuries are sustained each year at Florida amusement parks. With the millions of visitors each year, it’s reasonable to assume there are thousands of people injured each year at Florida theme parks.
Some of those accidents may be due to a person’s own negligence by failing to follow ride safety instructions or deliberately trying to break the park’s safety rules. However, what happens when the fun stops because of a serious accident on a ride or on the park premises due to the park’s negligence, the negligence of an employee, or faulty equipment? This could involve failing to provide or enforce adequate safety measures, failure to maintain equipment properly, and ride operator errors, such as failing to ensure guests are properly secured in safety belts or focusing on operating their ride safely.
