Theme Parks offer one of the most popular recreational weekend and holiday experiences available. However, as with any other recreational activity, there is a risk of patron injury from high patron volumes, queueing, stair climbs, activity design, lapses in supervision and guest throughput rates.
If a recreational injury arises from any of the above or the action of the other participants, defective premises or defective equipment, there may be an entitlement to Theme Park Injury claims damages.
Most theme parks specify contractual liability exclusions as a condition of entry. Your rights to compensation for any resulting injury can be diminished by liability waivers and statutory immunity that usually apply to injuries resulting from “obvious risks” arising from Dangerous Recreational Activities.
The role of an expert Theme Park Injury claims lawyer confronted with a serious theme park accident is to examine all the contributing factors thoroughly and to assess the extent of fair compensation that is properly payable to the injured theme park patron.
Visitors who disregard safety guidelines or operators who fail in their duty of care can both result in injuries at theme parks. You should seek legal advice if you suffered any of the injuries below:
- Back or neck pain
- fractures and sprains
- head trauma
- Excessive flexion or dislocation
You might be eligible to make a claim for compensation if you were injured at a theme or water park in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Upper Coomera, or Queensland as a result of reasonably foreseeable risk.
Your rights include the right to choose an injury compensation lawyer with years of knowledge of theme park systems and operations, the mishaps that can occur and get around liability exclusions that theme park businesses and their insurers rely on.
You are entitled to the services of a legal team whose experience with theme park accidents gives them the confidence to take on your claim charging no upfront fees and only getting paid on success.
In Queensland, the Law Reform Act of 1995 and the Civil Responsibility Act of 2003 both permit you to file a public liability claim. Businesses that use public areas typically obtain public liability insurance to cover events like accidents at amusement parks. This indicates that you are filing a claim against the insurer rather than the business directly.
If you had an accident at the theme park, you could file a claim against the insurance. It is sometimes believed incorrectly that if you file a claim, you are bringing a lawsuit against the company. This is inaccurate, and you have every right to file a public responsibility claim if your amusement park accident has caused you to suffer severe financial hardship or other hardships. The Civil Liability Act will be used to decide who is at fault – the person or the company.
Our services extend Australia-wide and cover contested court hearings and the negotiation of out-of-court compensation settlements for all theme park accidents.
