San Diego Amusement Park Accident Lawyers

Recover the Compensation You Deserve for Theme Park Injuries

You may have a viable personal injury claim if you or your family member were hurt on an amusement park ride, but there are other cases of park liability as well. For example, if you were assaulted on park property because of negligent park security, or if you were hurt in a slip and fall incident because of an unattended spill or another dangerous condition on the park grounds, then you could be entitled to financial compensation and damages.

Per the Consumer Safety Commission, injuries suffered in amusement park accidents have risen nearly 87% over the last 5 years. In fact, a recent survey indicates that about 1,086 ride-related injuries occurred in 2009 alone. Of these injuries, 65 were serious enough to require overnight treatment in an emergency room or hospital.

If you were injured in a theme park accident, you are not alone. Do not hesitate to contact our firm.

There are several theme parks throughout Southern California, including:

  • Knott's Berry Farm/Soak City
  • SeaWorld
  • Six Flags Magic Mountain
  • Belmont Park
  • Disneyland/California Adventure
  • Legoland California
  • San Diego Wild Animal Park
  • The San Diego Zoo

Most Common Causes of Theme Park Accidents

Sometimes, accidents happen. If you or someone you love was injured at a theme park, concert venue or sports stadium, however, it is important for you to assess whether or not the accident was preventable. Under California premises liability laws, those who maintain these properties are responsible for the general safety of their guests. This means conducting routine maintenance, promptly remedying hazardous conditions, and more.

When someone fails to do their job, people get hurt. If you have been injured under any of the following circumstances, we encourage you to contact our firm as soon as you can:

  • Negligent operation of an amusement park ride
  • Mechanical defects due to a lack of maintenance
  • The ride was designed to be inherently dangerous
  • Park security failed to prevent a violent attack
  • Tripping hazards were left throughout the park
  • Ride components were defectively manufactured
  • The safety harnesses or lap belts were faulty
