A Theme Park Death is Bad for Business
Some of the world’s most popular theme parks are located in Florida, including Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios Florida. On a typical day, tens of thousands of individuals and families give their business to these amusement sites, which translates into millions of dollars in revenue for the park owners.
However, theme park companies know that any deaths on their premises will be bad for business, which is why they often suppress any news about deaths that occurred in the park. These corporations also know that the family members of the deceased may have the right to pursue legal action over the wrongful death of their loved ones.
Most theme park companies will have legal teams who will stop at nothing to discredit a family’s claim to compensation in addition to trying to limit the amount of compensation that the theme park has to pay to surviving family members. If you lost a loved one and the company offered you a settlement, we caution you have your case reviewed by an experienced Orlando injury attorney before making any decisions.
