Orlando Zip Line Accidents

Though there have been 16 accidents at Orlando’s Zoom Air since it opened in July 2012, Florida’s Bureau of Fair Rides Inspection recently said the zip line courses were safe. Despite recent deaths at Orlando amusement parks, the zip line company says they are not concerned, and that their facilities are inspected twice a year.

This raises questions about how those 16 visitors were injured. Inspectors say the accidents were the fault of the patron, and that people should only go on the level of zip line they are comfortable with.

Still, injuries at an amusement park are not comforting news, especially in Orlando, the amusement park capital of the world. Millions of tourists flock to Orlando each year to visit Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, and many more famous amusement parks. Of course, they hope that all accidents are taken seriously, and even more so that they never happen in the first place.

If you have been injured in an amusement park accident, you may be able to recover the costs of your injury. Attorney James O. Cunningham is an Orlando personal injury attorney who has been working with injured amusement park visitors and employees for decades.

If you are involved in an theme park accident, the results can be on par with those of a car accident. Many rides can fling passengers out of their seats at speeds of 50 mph or more, just like in a car accident. This can cause severe spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, amputations, and even death.

It’s important to remember that it isn’t just visitors who can be entitled to benefits. Employees spend more time around the amusement park rides than anyone else, and therefore are constantly at risk of injury from heavy machinery, high voltage lines, dangerous chemicals, and other hazards.

Amusement parks are fun, but an unexpected injury can not only ruin your trip, but your life. Let the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham help you recuperate your losses and get the compensation you deserve if you have been involved in an Orlando amusement park accident.
