In Florida, amusement parks are a way of life. With Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios at our doorstep, amusement parks are a fun and accessible option for weekend entertainment, and are visited by thousands each year.
Amusement parks try to always put safety first, and invest lots of time and energy in testing rides and following safety protocol, but accidents can happen. Just this year at the Florida State Fair a woman was thrown from a ride, suffering injuries including a broken nose and cracked skull. Further investigation found many more people were also injured at the fair, though not as severely.
Being flung from a ride is an unlikely occurrence, but one that is not to be taken lightly. Amusement park rides can throw passengers from their seats at speeds up to 50 mph.
Employees of amusement parks are perhaps at the greatest risk, not of being injured on the rides, but while working around them. High voltage and heavy machinery are common causes for personal injury.

From major amusement parks like Disney World and its affiliated parks, Universal Orlando, and Sea World, to smaller parks like state and local fairs, attorney James O. Cunningham has the experience you need.
