Amusement Park Accident Lawyer

With 20 years of experience serving the Fort Lauderdale community, personal injury lawyer David I. Fuchs has successfully represented amusement park accident victims, their families and friends who have sustained and suffered serious bodily injuries or death because of the negligence of the owners, operators, employees, maintenance staff or other party at an amusement park.

The amusement park industry is extremely lucrative. The industry in total collects over $10 billion yearly. Although the park owners make such large profits, they often fail to spend the proper funds necessary to help make their parks safer. On average, there are over 500 million visits to the nation’s amusement parks each year. Over half of these visits include permanent theme parks across the United States, and a small portion involves smaller fairs or carnivals that travel from place to place.

Is safety an issue?

Safety is always an issue in amusement parks. Visitors often assume that park operators are taking the appropriate safety measures, however this is not always the case. Accidents have been known to occur to riders, bystanders, and even park attendants. Whenever human and machines work together toward a common purpose, there will always be cause for error.

What are the statistics?

According to the safety commission, over 10,000 people are hospitalized yearly for ride-related injuries. This number only accounts for those reported to emergency rooms. This number does not account for those who visit local or family physicians or even those treated at the scene by paramedics.

Fixed-site rides

  • Accounted for almost 7,000 of the total injuries on average yearly.
  • Most injuries occurred to children 10-14 years old (approx 18%), children 5-9 (approx 13%) and 15-19 years old (approx 14%) and even victims 0-4 years old (6.3%).
  • Females (approx 70%) were injured about 1.5 times more often than males (approx 40%).

Mobile rides

  • Mobile rides accounted for a yearly average of 4,000 of the total injuries.
  • Attraction injuries increased as the use of inflatable attractions increased.
  • Of these injuries, men and women were affected almost equally: 54% of males and 46% of females.
