Amusement Park Injury Lawyers in Denver
Amusement parks are not all fun and games. County fairs, water parks, and even established venues like Disneyland have a long history of catastrophic incidents and seriously hurt guests.
After you have been injured at an amusement park, you face an uphill battle to get just compensation. These parks are in the business of hushing “negative publicity” and sweeping painful incidents under the rug. To that end, they may press you to accept a settlement quickly. However, you may be owed more for long-term care and expenses related to the accident.
Telling the truth or exposing a dangerous practice is not only helpful to your case, but to the public at large, and people’s safety at these parks in the long run. Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. handles high-profile cases. We are nationally acclaimed trial lawyers with the resources and experience to take on the biggest opponent. Call (877) 433-3906 today to schedule a free initial consultation.
Many people have been injured or killed by amusement park rides that malfunction. Whether due to faulty construction, maintenance, or operation, guests may be sent to the hospital with injuries ranging from broken limbs to amputation to traumatic brain or spinal injury. You may be thrown from a moving vehicle due to a lack of proper safety restraints or defective belts or bars. The entire vehicle you are riding in may also lose control and derail from its track or bindings, hitting the ground at high speeds. This can easily cause death to those inside. At a zoo or aquarium, besides the risk of mechanical failure, you also face slip-and-fall injuries and the slight but present possibility of animal attacks. No matter what happened, we can go to work to take care of you and your family.
The laws governing amusement parks are complex, and exist at both the federal and state level. Depending on the type of park – a permanent park like Water World, a traveling carnival, or rented rides in a church parking lot – liability may shift. It’s important to note that patrons may assume some legal risk when they voluntarily participate in dangerous recreational activities. However, this assumption of risk does not excuse negligent behavior on the part of the venue, the ride operator, or the equipment manufacturer.
Discovering where liability truly lies is an arduous and challenging task, requiring a deep knowledge of the applicable law and the technical side of the machines in question. Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. has the experience, as well as the medical and engineering background, to investigate these incidents and develop a strong claim for compensation for the victims.
