According to the NCPSC (National Consumer Public Safety Commission) more than 270 million people visit theme parks annually. Unfortunately, these attractions are not always designed safely or maintained properly. Furthermore, employees may not be adequately trained or attentive enough to keep patrons and their families safe from harm.
Visiting a theme park is an exciting event. The thrills of the rides, spending time with family and friends and the pursuit of adventures to make memories for years to come are all components of why we love to go to recreational vacation destinations.
Even if you do not live in Florida, you and your child may still have the ability to pursue legal action against a theme park. However, amusement park owners and corporations will do everything in their power to discredit your injury claim, which is why it is essential to retain the support of experienced and qualified legal counsel.
