Can I File a Personal Injury Claim Against an Amusement Park?
Going to an amusement park or theme park can be great fun for the entire family. The rides, the shows, and the games are all exciting and create some fond memories. However, as in any location with tons of equipment and large crowds, there is always the risk of injury. In fact, hundreds of parkgoers are injured every year. Who is responsible when a guest is injured?
Depending on the situation, the company that owns the park could be held liable for premises liability if a person is injured. Premises liability is the term used for a set of laws that may or may not determine the liable part for injuries sustained on a property or in a building. Premises liability, in this case, also includes general activities in the park, all rides, and the general condition of the amusement park. Additionally, premises liability would apply to most injuries that occur on the amusement park’s property, which includes the parking lot, all sub-lots, and buildings, but not all injuries would be covered based on how the injury occurred.
It is important to your case not to take upon yourself to decide if the injury could have been prevented. Instead, leave that to the personal injury attorneys at One Law Group in Beverly Hills.

At One Law Group, our job is to help identify the responsible party and collect evidence to support a successful personal injury claim against that company. Once we understand how and where in the amusement park your injury occurred, we look at all angles of the situation to determine if legal responsibility rests with the owners of the amusement park, the designers/manufactures of the amusement park ride or walkway, the owner of the concession stand, or the company that manages the amusement park (if different from the owners). With large amusement parks or large corporations, there can be multiple companies that are responsible for providing compensation for your injury.
When pursuing damages from a large company, such as one that owns or manages multiple amusement parks, it is wise to acquire the services of a law firm with experienced attorneys who fully understand the challenges of seeking to recover damages from larger corporations. The personal injury attorneys at One Law Group have the necessary experience to investigate and litigate injuries that occur on amusement park properties.
