The owner of a theme park or pleasure beach has the duty as an occupier to ensure the safety of all visitors, even if they have sub-contracted the operation of rides or food outlets to other vendors. When they do not perform regular maintenance of rides or food inspection, serious injuries or illness can result, turning a once fun experience into an unpleasant memory.
If you or your child was injured at Blackpool Pleasure Beach or a similar theme park, Graham Coffey & Co offers dedicated advice and representation to assist you in recovering financial compensation from all negligent parties. Contact our law office to learn more about your options after an injury.
Representation Through All Types of Pleasure Beach Accidents
We represent individuals who have been injured by:
- On-ride collisions
- Unexpected braking
- Ride failures
- Slipping or tripping on the steps to the ride
- Slipping on ice cream spills or other discarded food
- Contaminated food poisoning
- Tripping on potholes or broken pavement
- Falling from heights due to poorly guarded drops, broken handrails or other inadequate fencing
- Skin reactions to poor quality face paint
Most accidents are caused by inadequate maintenance of rides or poor cleaning inspections, but they can also be caused by staff training failures or even poor ride design. Your solicitor will investigate all factors that could have contributed to your accident, working with industry experts when necessary to build a strong claim.
Time Period for Making a Claim
Even if your accident happened last summer or within the last three years, you may still be able to file a claim for personal injury. If your child was injured, you have until his or her 21st birthday to file a claim. The sooner you act, however, the more likely we can preserve and examine evidence. For more information, please review our Public Accident FAQs.
Types of Injuries from Amusement Parks
Depending on the nature of your accident, you could suffer from cuts and bruises, whiplash or related neck injuries, back injuries, skin irritations or food poisoning, among others. We understand the serious nature of these injuries, and we work diligently to recover the compensation you need for any medical treatment and the pain and suffering you have endured.
