Major theme parks in Florida have agreements with the State to self-report visitor’s injuries ( which allows them to be exempt from ride safety inspections performed by the State) that result in required hospital stays of over 24 hours. Their recent quarterly report details some of the accidents which range from swallowing too much water at a water park, having seizures on a water ride, having chest pains, abdominal pains, dizziness and headaches on thrill rides. More information can be viewed here.
There have been a lot of controversial arguments about this self-reporting arrangement, and whether or not Florida parks are under-reporting injuries. Whatever the case may be, these theme parks have a responsibility of safety to their guests, and are liable for any injuries due to neglect.
If you or anyone you know has been injured during a visit to a Florida theme park or resort, an experienced Personal Injury Attorney should be contacted immediately. All details need to be investigated and researched to determine if negligence caused the injury.
