All amusement parks and attractions have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors. All parts of the premises must be inspected for hazards regularly, and any unsafe conditions must be addressed promptly. Staff must receive adequate training and all state regulations must be followed.

Poorly trained employees can cause an accident that leaves people hurt. Visitors are injured in slip and fall accidents and by tripping over obstructions.
The high cost of amusement park accidents
Visitors can suffer a wide range of injuries in amusement park accidents. These include injuries to the head, neck, back, or shoulder. Some suffer spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Recovery can take months or even longer. In some cases, victims are left with a permanent disability.
Medical expenses can add up quickly after an accident. These include the costs of ambulance services, diagnostic tests, X-rays, MRIs and CT scans, surgery, hospital stays, physical therapy, medication, home medical equipment, and follow-up visits with doctors. If you are left unable to work, there is less money coming in, leading to financial stress.
We hold negligent amusement parks accountable
If the owner’s negligence caused the accident that left you injured, you deserve financial compensation. But the process can be complicated. Owners often deny doing anything wrong or refuse to accept responsibility. Insurance companies fight against claims because they know there’s a lot of money at stake.
Attorney Leigh knows how insurance companies approach these types of claims. He used to represent them. Insurance companies handle claims every day and have the advantage. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation, including:
- Questioning the seriousness of your injuries
- Seeking access to your medical history to look for evidence of a pre-existing injury
- Blaming you for what happened
- Offering you a settlement that falls far short of covering your damages.
Insurance companies have lawyers fighting for their best interests. You need an experienced attorney who will fight for you.
