Amusement Park Injuries in Western PA
Pittsburgh injury law firm
Each year, thousands of people are injured in this country on amusement park rides. If you have been injured at an amusement park, it is important that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
Most amusement parks are owned and operated by large corporations that have the resources and experience to contest and minimize claims of injured guests. It may be difficult to receive the compensation to which you are entitled if proceeding without legal assistance. The Consumer Product Safety Commission regulates operators of rides at carnivals and fairs, but the transient nature of these organizations can make it difficult to recover the compensation you are owed due to their negligence. At Rudberg Law Offices, LLC, our experienced attorneys have successfully litigated against both large corporations and loosely organized businesses.
As amusement parks are continuously trying to develop new methods to thrill consumers, safety often lags behind. Injuries ranging from whiplash, back and neck injuries to brain hemorrhage have been reported recently by riders of this new generation of roller coasters and rides. Further, the expense of installing new rides is extraordinarily high, and many amusement parks allow rides to pass the point of safe operation in an effort to maximize their useful life. These rides are especially dangerous because they can malfunction at any time.
Any person that is injured due to the defective design or negligent operation of an amusement park ride is entitled to be compensated for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, mental anguish, disfigurement, and any other injuries suffered due to unsafe amusement park rides. Claims can be brought under theories of products liability, premises liability, or general tort/negligence law. Remember, you have only two (2) years from the date of your injury to file a claim.
Even if you have been informed that your behavior was the cause of your injury, you should contact Rudberg Law Offices, LLC for a free consultation. You may still be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
