Theme Park injury and accidents continue to rise based on the number of people contacting us. As Orlando amusement park attorneys, we continue to aggressively pursue claims for visitors to these central Florida attractions. Many innocent local and out-of-state guests have been lulled into waiting months and months before seeking our help following their accident and theme park injury. Sadly, people trust Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, Sea World, Fun Spot and the Magical Midway to “do the right thing.” In the meantime, medical bills go unpaid, vacations have been ruined and lives get interrupted. All the while, these large corporations hold on to their money and ignore valid and legitimate injury claims.
Recent theme park claims include a failure to provide a safe walkway for guests. Too often, debris or liquid on the walking surface causes a terrible fall. Usually, the park’s employees, if notified, will provide First Aid and offer to obtain a wheelchair. In those situations, these employees may fill out an incident report. It is important that injured guests do not sign any inaccurate statement if asked to do so. Sometimes a park representative will contact a guest after an accident to obtain a recorded statement. As we explain in our book Seeking Justice: An Insider’s Guide for the Injured, never agree to give a recorded statement. There are simply too many important issues about which most people have no knowledge. If you are not aware of these critical points, then you will not understand the importance of the questions being asked.
In addition, do not sign blanket medical authorizations. You do not want the operators of Orlando attractions to be obtaining personal and private medical information which has nothing to do with your injury or accident. Yet, that is exactly what you may be allowing if you sign a general release of medical information. .
If you have suffered an accident or injury anywhere in the Orlando area – especially at one of the famous theme parks or amusement attractions- get the help you deserve- and get it quickly. Do not be ignored for even one more day. We promptly respond to those folks who fill out our Get Help Now form or who call us toll-free.
