Accidents and Injuries at Amusement Parks

Summertime in New Jersey is, of course, the busiest season for most amusement parks. But an increased crowd means a higher incidence of accidents and injuries, unfortunately. From rides to unsafe fairgrounds, there are a number of ways for people to potentially get hurt during what is supposed to be a fun day out. Thankfully, however, paying the price of admission doesn’t mean you’re signing a waiver for anything bad that might happen.  So if you do fall victim to an injury at an amusement park, you can still get help from an NJ personal injury attorney.

Park Liability

When you pay to get into an amusement park, you are not signing away your right to pursue the park legally if you or someone you’re with gets hurt. Whether you slip on stairs that haven’t been properly maintained, trip over uneven brick pathways, or get injured on a park ride, you’re not necessarily stuck with all of the bills and proceedings on your own. Take photos or have someone else take pictures of where you got hurt in the park so that you can prove unsafe park grounds, and then seek medical care.  Following medical care, take all of your records to a personal injury attorney for help.

Getting Legal Help

A personal injury attorney can help you seek compensation from the park you got hurt at. Make sure you keep all of your medical records, as well as a detailed account of what happened so that you can convey the accident to a lawyer. A personal injury attorney can help you seek payment for medical bills and other damages from the park. The stress of getting hurt during a fun outing is enough—you shouldn’t have to stress about how you’ll pay for doctor visits as well.
