Universal Studios Injuries
A Universal Studios injury could occur at one of two theme parks located in the United States:
- Universal Studios Hollywood, located in Los Angeles, California
- Universal Studios Orlando, located in Orlando, Florida
Every year, millions of people visit these theme parks without injury. It is very rare for visitors or employees to be seriously injured at any amusement park, including Universal Studios. However, once in a while, serious injuries do occur. Injuries are not always the park’s fault. Accidents happen, and sometimes people are just careless. Other times, however, the park is responsible for causing your injury.
The key element to any personal injury case is proving negligence, which means proving that your injury occurred because Universal Studios failed to do something they should have done to protect your safety. If you believe you have a Universal Studios injury lawsuit, it is essential to hire an attorney who has experience proving negligence.
The popularity of theme parks, including Universal Studios, relies on the public’s perception of the park as a safe place, even for small children, disabled people, and older adults. The parks have a strong incentive to keep their visitors safe and happy. When injuries occur, the parks also have a strong incentive to minimize negative publicity from a trial to protect their reputation. Most amusement park injury lawsuits are dismissed early or settled outside of court for an undisclosed sum of money.
How could an injury occur?
Slip, trip, or fall injuries: These injuries can occur almost anywhere within a park. They may occur around water features, especially when water splashes on a slippery surface. Sometimes walking areas are not designed safely, and unexpected curbs present tripping hazards. Or perhaps an employees neglected to clean up spilled food in a dining area. A slip, trip, or fall injury can occur almost anywhere within a theme park.
Injuries on Rides and Attractions: These injuries often occur because employees were not properly trained in safety procedures. Severe injuries can occur when employees fail to secure patrons inside rides properly, or allow people onto rides who are intoxicated, too young, disabled, or otherwise unfit for the ride. Other times, the rides themselves are malfunctioning, not inspected, or unsafely designed. Unfortunately, rides and attractions often cause severe injuries — including amputations, broken bones, disability, or death.
