If you or a family member recently suffered an amusement park injury in
the Sunshine State, not only must you now deal with medical, legal and
perhaps even emotional crises, but you also must reconcile with the fact
that your vacation turned into something of a nightmare. Where do amusement
park slip and fall injuries typically occur? Who might be liable for your
medical care and other damages?
Amusement Park Injuries – Examples of Where They Can Happen:
Floors at amusement park bathrooms can get quite slippery, particularly
if the staff mops the floors overzealously (or fails to mop the floors
zealously enough). In the rush to clean up a toddler's accident, for
instance, you might slip on the floor and bump your head against the stall
or even a hardtoilet.
Oil and grease can collect underneath rides undergoing maintenance or repair.
The slick gunk can spread, particularly during rainy weather, and turn
an ordinarily safe sidewalk or amusement park arcade into the equivalent
of black ice.
- Slipping or falling on rides, kiosks or eateries
Nearly an infinite number of things can “go wrong” at an amusement
park. Someone can accidently push you over. You might stub your toe on
a warpedpiece of plastic or plywood. You might lose your balance getting
out of the bumper cars. With so many people, so many amusements, and so
many moving parts, amusement parks can be extreme danger zones.
