Rhode Island Amusement Park Accidents

Posted by April Picozzi | Jul 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

Amusement parks and theme parks are places families enjoy going to each year for generations. Property owners and park officials are obligated to make sure their rides and attractions are safe and adhere to strict safety measures. Unfortunately, accidents can occur. Whether it's slipping and falling on wet surfaces or a ride malfunctions, these type of accidents can result in significant injuries and fatalities.

At Inman & Tourgee, Attorneys at Law, we can help you recover your entitled compensation if you have been injured at an amusement park. With more than 150 years of combined experience, our Rhode Island personal injury attorneys have a complete understanding of Rhode Island laws and court proceedings to help you get the results you want.

HOW TO FILE AN AMUSEMENT PARK ACCIDENT CLAIM

According to the United States Consumer Safety Commission, injuries at amusement parks have increased by 87% in the last five years. In 2011, over 1,000 people were injured on rides at nearly 400 U.S. amusement parks based on a survey by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).

There are three types of liability claims which can apply to amusement park injuries and deaths: negligence, premises liability, and product liability. Whether it's due to an individual's conduct, the property manager's lack of safety precautions, or the flaws of the attractions and rides themselves, our Rhode Island personal injury attorneys are prepared to thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident.

READY TO START YOUR CASE TODAY

The amusement park industry is considerably unregulated and there is not a uniform system for reporting injuries. Typically, these park companies will be confidentially settled, meaning there is a chance that you may not be getting the compensation necessary to cover medical expenses, loss of income, as well as pain and suffering.

Our Rhode Island personal injury lawyers are capable of helping you on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don't pay us a penny unless we recover your entitled compensation.
