Determining Liability for an Injury at Universal Studios Orlando

In most cases, when injuries occur at Universal Studios Orlando, negligence on the part of amusement park staff is usually the key issue. This negligence on the park staff can include:

  • Poor ride design or construction
  • Poor quality replacement parts
  • Improper maintenance
  • Inadequate inspection procedures
  • Failure of restraint devices

Ride operators failing to follow operating procedures due to distraction or carelessness Amusement parks are held to a higher standard of safety as a common carrier, which is a legal term that also applies to entities that operate airplanes, buses and trains. Because of this, theme parks like Universal Studios Orlando must follow more thorough procedures to ensure rider safety.

Water Slide Accidents at Universal’s Volcano Bay

Many water park accidents are caused by a slip and fall or trip and fall accidents from wet surfaces. However, broken water slides, harmful bacteria and chemical imbalances in the water are also a cause of injuries and illnesses.

Just like non-water park amusement rides, water park rides can have the same problems, including flaws in design, construction, maintenance, and inspection. Water parks are constantly trying to make their attractions more appealing, so they build taller and faster slides, which only increase the risk to park visitors and guests.
