Summer is when Pennsylvania residents flock to the number of theme parks in the state. It is also when they are injured at these parks, as rides can occasionally malfunction, and employees can be negligent. Theme parks can be held liable in a premises liability lawsuit.
Theme parks carry insurance, and their policies tend to be pretty large given the magnitude of the harm that could happen. The first thing to do for compensation may be filing a claim with their insurance policy. However, while this may be quicker, insurance policies have been known to be hard-nosed negotiators that try to save themselves some money. Nonetheless, this could result in compensation without the need to file a lawsuit. Make sure to do this before your timeframe for filing a lawsuit expires.
The theme park may have asked you to sign a liability waiver as a condition for admission. This may not have nearly the effect as they want. They may be able to escape some form of negligence but not all of them. Even if you signed a waiver, you still may have a legal right to sue for something. If the theme park tries to overreach with their waiver, the entire clause could be voided. Do not assume that you have signed away your legal rights. A court may go out of its way to keep that from happening.
You should always consult with a premises liability lawyer if you have been injured in one of these accidents. Never assume anything, and the lawyer could tell you if you have a legal case against the theme park. The park owner owes you a duty of care, and they could be made to pay if they breach it.
