Alabama Theme Park Accident Attorneys
Injuries, the Lesser-Known Attraction of Amusement and Theme Parks
A day at an amusement or theme park is supposed to be fun for the whole family. Whether it's a resort, or just a day trip, amusement parks are places where people can get their thrills on a rollercoaster, get spun around on rides, and play games. But sometimes, these fun days can turn very dangerous, and people end up getting hurt on amusement and theme park rides. This is when you need a good personal injury lawyer. This is when you need Guster Law Firm, LLC.
Causes of Amusement Park Injuries
If you or someone you love is injured at an amusement or theme park, the first thing you'll want to know is what caused it. But in an amusement park, there are so many things that can go wrong, and it can be difficult to determine the cause.
Some of the causes of amusement park injuries are:
- Operator error
- Mechanical failure
- Defects of the ride design
- Inadequate security
- Proper warning signs not posted
- Lack of safety inspections
- Inadequate repairs made to equipment and rides
- Lack of training for the operator
- Inadequate maintenance of machines
- Missing or broken safety harnesses
- Incorrect weight or height restrictions
- Improper loading and unloading techniques
- Safety equipment malfunctions, such as problems with seat belts
- Structure and/or design flaws
- Inept installation
- Lack of an emergency stop
- Animal attacks
- Improper lighting
- Corroded parts
- Open areas leading to electrical or mechanical equipment
With all these causes and more of amusement park injuries, it's nearly impossible for the untrained eye to be able to determine what the cause of the accident was. At Guster Law Firm, LLC, we have the experience that lets us easily determine the cause and if we can't, we'll inspect the area where the injury occurred to try and figure it out for you.
Types of Amusement Park Injuries
Amusement park injuries can be anything from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) or even death. A few of the most common injuries suffered at amusement parks are:
- Neck and spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries, such as crushed organs or internal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhages
These are serious injuries, and they can be life-changing. You'll need compensation to deal with the medical bills, loss of income from the injured party, and you might even be eligible for punitive damages for emotional stress. In order to get what you deserve though, you'll need the right attorney to represent you in court.
Amusement park owners and operators can be extremely secretive about the amount of accidents that occur at their parks and to compound that problem, there are very few regulations and laws that they have to abide by. But that doesn't mean there's no recourse if you have the misfortune of getting hurt at an amusement or theme park.

Whatever you do, don't speak to the amusement park in-depth about your accident or injury. Because they don't like information to reach the public, the chances are good that they'll try to settle with you privately, and the settlement amount is typically not anything near what you'd be able to get in court. Instead, let us at Guster Law Firm, LLC do all the hard work for you. We know how amusement park owners work, we know about all the tricks they try to use, and we know how to avoid them. The Birmingham accident lawyers at Guster Law will work with you to fully review your case, take the responsible parties to court, and get you the compensation you deserve.
