Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
When it comes to injured children, insurance companies fear big verdicts against their clients. Unfortunately, they will do anything to mitigate their liability. Insurance company representatives will often participate in unethical tactics so that they do not have to pay injured people for the pain that their clients cause. That said, a personal injury lawyer will give injured children and their families the best chance at getting fair compensation that will offset medical bills and other expenses associated with injuries. Lawyers will never be fooled by insurance agent tricks because they’ve seen it all before.
Parents of injured children often have to take a lot of time off of work. They may incur unimaginable costs, for their children’s physical and psychological well-being and sometimes even their own psychological well-being. Trauma after an amusement park injury is a major concern for all involved. Trying to secure compensation after an accident is tricky, especially for traumatized victims and their families. A lawyer can take care of every aspect of your claim while you focus on helping your child and your family recover. With a lawyer’s help, you are likely to receive far more money than you would trying to handle your claim on your own.

Amusement Park Injuries We Handle
Amusement park injuries can happen for a wide variety of reasons. The most common causes of injuries at amusement parks include:
- Improper operation such as abruptly starting or stopping the ride, failing to properly latch seatbelts, operating the ride too quickly, and more.
- Mechanical defect such as a lap bar disengaging during the ride, a vehicle derailing from the tracks, or any other component failing and causing an accident.
- Failure to warn guests with pre-existing medical conditions that certain rides may not be safe for them.
These accidents can cause a variety of injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones or severed limbs
- Lacerations, bruises, cuts, contusions
- Skull fracture
- Mental distress
According to Global News, the Canada Safety Council believes that amusement park accidents are underreported. Because yearly statistics about such accidents are hard to come by, we often must rely on specific incidents to gauge the risk involved. Unfortunately, there is no shortage of news reports about such incidents. CNN reported that 30,000 injuries related to amusement parks were treated in emergency rooms in 2016.
