Although it’s only September, amusement parks in Southern California have already started celebrating the holiday season. Parks like Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knott’s Berry Farm are currently decked out in Halloween décor and urging guests to come experience the spooky charm. Halloween festivities will be followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations at the park.
With the added attraction of seeing the park decorated and experiencing the holiday charm, more and more people are visiting the parks. While amusement parks can be a lot of fun, is also true that amusement parks can be locations that result in personal injuries or wrongful deaths.
While we hope that your amusement park visit does not include an injury, if you or someone you love is injured at a park it is important to speak to an experienced Southern California personal injury attorney. There are several different legal claims that can be made if you’re injured while at an amusement park.
One such claim is a claim alleging negligence on the part of the amusement park. Negligence claims often occur when the injury has occurred due to inattention or carelessness on the part of the theme park or an employee of the park. This could be anything from a maintenance worker not doing proper upkeep of the ride to a ride operator not following safety guidelines. It could also include a park not inspecting their rides or employees not instructing riders on the rules of the ride.
