Trauma at Amusement Parks and Playgrounds
Amusement parks and playgrounds give people a place to play and to rejoice in the experience of just having fun. Fortunately, most people visiting an amusement park or playground do have fun and accidents are rare, but they do happen.
Children and even adults suffer serious injuries on merry-go-rounds, swings, slides and teeter totters in playgrounds. A small number of people die or are severely injured every year on park and fair rides such as the rollercoaster, ferris wheel, carousel or bumper cars and more exotic rides. Survivors of these injuries can face a lifetime of high medical expenses and inability to earn income.
Amusement park accidents can cause catastrophic, life-changing injuries and death. When an accident at an amusement park or playground has caused you or a family member injury, you may need to file a claim.
Reasons to File a Case
A severe, catastrophic injury to you or a family member will result in high medical bills, probably loss of income, possibly even lifetime earning ability, and may completely disrupt or destroy your or your family’s quality of life. Your life and the lives of others in your family may be changed forever.
At the same time, the odds are that you’ll also be facing very large insurance companies, each of whom employ armies of lawyers, whose job it is to save their clients money by doing whatever they can to prevent claims from being paid or get them settled for as little as possible.
Although insurance companies should pay claims promptly and those payments should be enough to cover your entire medical costs, lost income and whatever else is needed to make you as whole as possible after your injury, the reality is that these for-profit companies will do whatever they can to make sure it isn’t paid. If they’ve got an army of lawyers to fight for them, you need your own.
