Why are you entitled to make a claim?
Visitors of theme parks are entitled to make a claim against an accident at a theme park if it was not their fault. This is because it is the theme park that is at fault, it is their job to make sure the rides and the rest of the park is safe for its visitors.
To make a claim at a theme park, there has to be some negligence on the theme parks behalf. For instance a poorly maintained ride could result in a sudden jolt that may cause whiplash.
An accident does not have to be on a ride, it could be anywhere at the park. Maybe a restaurant, or even along a poorly maintained foot path.
What should you do if you have suffered an accident at a theme park?
If you have had an accident at a theme park you should:
- Report your accident to a member of staff
- You should take pictures of the area
- Obtain details of witnesses
- Seek medical treatment
If you accident is serious, the health and safety executive of the theme park should be informed and be made available to talk to.
Making a claim
To make a claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer who of course operates a no win no fee policy.
You should make your claim within 3 years of your accident, of course we recommend you make a claim as soon as possible. If the accident victim is a child they have 3 years after their 18th birthday to make a claim. If your claim falls out of the time restrictions, you will have to get special permission from the courts to proceed with your case.
