Steps To Take If You Are Injured At An Amusement Park

Spending the day at an amusement park should be fun for the whole family, but unfortunately, injuries can occur. If you or a family member is injured at an amusement park due to negligence on behalf of the park, such as not inspecting rides or having improperly trained ride operators, you may be entitled to a financial settlement. The key is knowing what to do after the accident to ensure that you get what you deserve. If you or a family member are injured at an amusement park, take the following steps.

Report the Incident to Park Management

Any time an injury occurs inside an amusement park, it is very important to promptly report it to park management. In the event of a serious injury, the park manager should ensure that first aid is rendered and that 9-1-1 is called. When you report the injury, make sure that the park manager fills out an incident report and make sure that you get a copy to keep. Having the details of the injury in writing will help when it comes to securing a settlement.

Seek Medical Attention

If you have suffered a very serious injury at an amusement park, you will be taken to the hospital for treatment. Even if you do not think that your injuries are severe, it is still in your best interest to seek medical attention. A doctor will do a full exam, determine the extent of your injuries, and prescribe a treatment plan. Make sure that you carefully follow your doctor's instructions and go to each follow-up appointment. Your medical records will most likely serve as evidence when dealing with the amusement park's insurance company or if your case goes to trial, so you'll want to make sure that there is a clear picture of what your injuries are, how they are being treated, and how long it takes you to recover from them.

Hire an Experienced Attorney

Dealing with an amusement park injury claim can be complicated, so it is not in your best interest to try to take care of the issue on your own. You should hire an experienced personal injury attorney if you are injured at an amusement park. An attorney will know how to build a case that shows that the amusement park is liable for damages and they will communicate with the amusement park's insurance company on your behalf to help secure a settlement.
