Amusement Park Accidents

Philadelphia Amusement Park Liability

Have you suffered an injury while visiting an amusement park? If so, you should consider speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney who can inform you of your rights, advise you of your best options, and help you take the appropriate legal action through a premises liability claim.

The companies that operate amusement parks have a legal obligation to:

  • Provide adequate security
  • Ensure the attractions are not broken or defective
  • Ensure the premises are free of potentially hazardous conditions

When an amusement park fails to take these safety measures, a serious injury may occur. Philadelphia-based lawyer Thomas J. Murphy, Jr has experience handling all types of amusement park accident cases, including those involving:

  • Assaults by other visitors at the park
  • Injuries suffered while riding a roller coaster or another attraction
  • Slip of falls due to a dangerous condition on the premises
  • Ride operator negligence
  • Failure to post warning signs
  • Animal attacks at a zoo or wild animal park

Recovering Damages in Amusement Park Accidents

An amusement park accident can significantly decrease the quality of a person’s life, making it difficult for them to return to work or take care of themselves without assistance. As with any serious physical injury, victims of amusement park accidents can expect to face long-term medical care, hospitalization, and ongoing physical therapy, the cost of which is more than most people can afford. Fortunately, the law entitles accident victims to compensation if they can prove the accident was caused by another person’s negligence.

If an individual can successfully establish that the amusement park was somehow responsible for the accident, he or she can recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life. If you’ve suffered an injury at an amusement park, and you’d like help filing your claim, please don’t hesitate to contact a Philadelphia injury lawyer from our firm today for exceptional legal counsel.
