California Amusement Park Accident Lawyer

Fighting for clients throughout CA

Millions of people visit California amusement parks each year. Amusement parks are one of the state’s largest sources of tourism. Vacationers come from all over the county and even from abroad to visit Southern California’s many popular theme parks, such as Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Disney’s California Adventure, and Lego Land.

Amusement park accidents have been on the rise over the last few years, as park owners seek to attract more visitors by offer newer, faster, taller, and scarier rides. The competition among California amusement parks to provide the ultimate thrill ride has led to the creation of faster and riskier rollercoasters and theme rides. As the speed and g-forces increase, so does the risk of serious injury to the riders.

In California, the Occupational and Safety and Health Administration (“Cal-OSHA”) is one of the agencies in charge of regulating and inspecting amusement park rides. While safety measures and regulations exist to minimize the risks to park visitors, hundreds of amusement park injuries still occur every year.

Helping You Navigate Myriad Legal Challenges

When it comes to prosecuting amusement park accident claims, there are often several legal challenges. Safety experts and investigators are needed to inspect the cause of the amusement park injury or accident. While the park may conduct an internal investigation, injured claimants need to obtain their independent investigation of the accident. It is vital to hire an experienced California amusement park accident lawyer to investigate and prosecute your claim as soon as possible to ensure that vital evidence and investigation are preserved.

Just a few years ago, the California Supreme Court chimed in on amusement park liability cases. In Gomez v. Superior Court (Walt Disney Co.) (2005), they stated that a California amusement park could be held to the common carrier standard for accidents that occur on their rollercoasters and other amusement park rides. The decision upheld established California precedent and represents a small win for people injured as a result of an amusement park ride accident.

Handling County Fair & Local Carnival Accident Claims

While California’s large theme parks are a well-known source of accidents, many more accidents occur at county and local fairs and carnivals, many of which are set up for a few days and are gone overnight. Traveling fairs and carnivals pose a special risk of accidents because the rides are repeatedly assembled and disassembled by carnival staff, many of whom do not have the proper training. The rides lack adequate safety inspections and some of the rides are old and built on outdated designs. Once the carnival or county fair has ended, the rollercoaster rides may be removed and vital evidence can disappear with them.

Fairs and carnivals also present another challenge for the prosecution of injury claims—locating the rollercoaster manufacturers and the carnival owners. Additionally, dealing with their insurance providers often requires special investigating skills.
