Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Roller Coaster Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Roller coasters remain the ultimate thrill at the majority of amusement parks. Almost every theme park will have a few of these rides that showcase how far they’re willing to go to provide safe, exciting thrills. Safe is the keyword here. No matter how scary the coaster might look, it is not there to pose a real threat to visitors. There are stringent safety requirements in place for theme parks to follow before they can allow one of these rides to operate for the general public. When something goes wrong with a roller coaster, it is often catastrophic and involves loss of life. This is the case much of the time, although there are lesser degrees of injury on some roller coasters.

Theme parks who don’t maintain regular maintenance and checks on their roller coasters pose a danger to their customers. Holding them accountable for their negligence is important not just for the individual who was harmed by it but for future customers who trust their lives to the people they pay for a great roller coaster ride. There have been many tragedies over the years that resulted in injury or deaths on roller coasters. Not every accident is catastrophic, either. Some result in a single injury that the newspapers don’t even cover because theme parks go to great lengths to avoid bad press, even going so far as to settle many cases out of court. This isn’t good for the person who was injured and it certainly isn’t good for the general public who needs to know which parks keep their equipment safe and which ones don’t.

There are two primary types of roller coaster injuries: Ones that involve fatalities and ones that involve injuries. While the coaster injuries that amount to multiple lives lost are the most catastrophic, there are many other types of small injuries that occur on roller coasters throughout the year. Sometimes parts of the roller coaster fall part and hit either passengers or passersby. There are some safety devices on the roller coaster, such as the shoulder bar, that can cause smaller amounts of damage when they’re installed improperly.

The most catastrophic roller coaster accidents result in loss of life. When this happens, newspaper coverage is often heavy and theme parks quickly seek to settle and quiet the tragedy. Customers of amusement parks that have allowed passengers on unsafe rides should never settle out of court before consulting our New York law firm. We want to help you recover the most amount of damages possible and theme parks and insurance companies rarely want to settle for a fair amount. It’s their job to dull the financial and public relations impact. That’s why you need strong, knowledgeable lawyers to make sure that the theme park is held accountable for their negligence.

If you have a legitimate case, you can recover financial damages that might include money for medical bills, counseling for the emotional impact of the disaster, loss of wages due to the accident, and in some cases, wrongful death damages. We carefully analyze your particular case and see what we can do to maximize the amount of damages you can recover.

Perhaps the most heartbreaking fact of roller coaster accidents is that people go to an amusement park to spend time with their loved ones and have a fun time. When something goes wrong with a roller coaster or any other kind of ride, the pain and suffering from this unexpected tragedy sometimes lasts a lifetime. People who see a roller coaster accident rarely ever get the image out of their mind. It’s for this reason that it’s so important to have a lawyer that understands not just the financial loss of these accidents but the emotional and psychological damage that arises after an event such as a roller coaster accident. People rarely return to the trusting, fun loving people they were at the amusement park before the accident. It’s so much more than just lost wages and medical bills.

There can be many reasons that a roller coaster accident occurs. In many cases, an operator error causes the tragedy. When this is the case, it’s clearly the fault of the amusement park’s and we can easily recover damages for you. In some cases, the amusement park will admit to their error and the financial impact is immediately curbed. In other cases, we need to analyze a case, compile evidence, and take it all the way to the court room to win your case. We will go to whatever lengths necessary allowable by the law to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.

While no one can pay away loss of life, the financial impact to the theme park is often enough to make them rethink and restructure their safety procedures so that rides are safe in the future. Because they’re forced to pay out of pocket for their negligence, they think twice before allowing lax operating or safety procedures on future roller coaster rides. Your case not only benefits you and your personal situation but also ensures that people will be safe on the roller coasters at that park in the future. Operator errors aren’t the only thing that causes roller coaster accidents.

The harnesses on roller coasters are often another source of malfunction. If the harnesses fail, tragedies happen. It’s the responsibility of the theme park to check, double check, and constantly recheck the harnesses on their coasters. If they’re unsafe, they should replace them immediately. Failing to do so is a grave error on their part and evidence of negligence in this area is almost certain to amount to large financial compensation. We would like to think that theme parks are upstanding and care about their customers. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. They may unwittingly let some safety procedures slide and some harnesses that need to be replaced remain on the coaster to cut their costs. When this results in loss of life or serious injury, it’s up to us to make sure that the business pays for their carelessness and callousness. And make no mistake, allowing children and adults to get on a ride that might be unsafe is a callous thing for any theme park to do. You’re there to have fun, not to experience a tragedy that will affect you for the rest of your life, or worse yet, there to risk losing your life.

Roller coasters are supposed to simulate the feeling of danger. They should offer a thrilling experience that makes you feel like you’re on the edge of the world, taking a risk. This should only be a simulation, though. There should be no real possibility of injury or death on a roller coaster. If you experienced a roller coaster injury or have lost a loved one due to the carelessness of a theme park, please call us today before you settle out of court or sign anything. We’re here to make sure that you get a fair amount of compensation for what you have suffered.
