Personal injury claims relating to amusement park injuries may be complicated because they involve different areas of tort law. They can involve premises defects, product defects, and general tort law. Regarding potential expert witnesses required to prove the claim, it may be necessary to retain the service of a design engineer to establish what caused the accident.
Amusement park injury cases have a complex nature, as several areas of state and federal law may come into play. A case like this is most likely a combination of product liability, negligence, and premises liability. Most amusement park owners or representatives will not settle a claim unless a lawsuit is filed, and many of these amusement park owners aggressively fight catastrophic injury claims to discourage injured persons or their families from filing injury claims. In many instances, park representatives will try to settle as quickly and cheaply as possible.
It is essential that you contact an experienced attorney before signing any documents or making any statements to a park owner or representative!
