Theme Park Accident, Injury & Death

An Amusement Park is blamed for an accident causing fatal injury and death of an Iraq War veteran who fell out of a roller coaster. The wrongful death lawsuit alleges that the theme park accident resulted from inappropriately permitting the veteran to board the roller coaster despite having no legs. As Orlando injury lawyers, we have handled many claims involving amusement park and theme park accidents and again find the underlying issue to center around employee training and violation of theme park policy.

According to reports the Army veteran, lost both legs and a hip after a roadside bombing in Iraq. Without his legs, he fell out of the roller coaster during a family outing. The theme park employees allegedly violated the amusement park’s own safety rules when they allowed the double amputee to ride the roller coaster. As a result of the violation of theme park policy, the lawsuit alleges that the veteran’s small young children have suffered the needless loss of their father.

As a result of the tragedy it is further reported that amusement park officials are amending policy relating to training of its employees and personnel. How sad to have a tragedy like this occur in order to generate more training and safer practices in them park and amusement parks. Yet, from decades of handling Orlando car accident and injury cases, and as experience Orlando sea world accident lawyers, we find that most change to safety regulations occur after a needless accident.
