Theme Park Accident Lawyers in Jacksonville, Florida

Theme park owners are consistently working to out-do their competitors to increase consumer popularity and revenue. New roller coasters and other amusement park "thrill" rides are cropping up all the time, advertised as being the world's fastest, highest and scariest. Unfortunately, these rides are giving riders a lot more than they pay for, including broken or bloody noses, broken ribs and limbs, whiplash, brain hemorrhages, paralysis and even death. The increase in thrill ride accidents is alarming as hundreds of people suffer minor to serious injuries each year.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that emergency room injuries from amusement park rides rose almost 87 percent in the last five years. The investigation conducted by the CPSC into these injuries concluded that several factors are at fault in these injuries - consumer behavior, operator behavior, mechanical failure, and design defects or limitations. While there may be some question over who is blame for the accident, there is no question that those injured while riding amusement park attractions suffer pain and loss because of their injuries.

Liability for amusement park accidents and theme park injuries involves three types of law - negligence or tort law, product liability law and premises liability law.
