Personal Injuries Inflicted from a Roller Coaster

October 12, 2020

A day at an amusement park is supposed to be fun with wonderful memories built, snacks eaten, and exciting rides. No one expects something to go wrong and cause irreparable harm at an amusement park. At Colson Hicks Eidson, our Miami personal injury lawyers want to discuss a personal injury that occurred here in Miami—a roller coaster ride went horribly wrong, injuring ten riders.

What happened in this Miami personal injury?

In June 2018, a roller coaster car derailed at the Daytona Beach Boardwalk in Florida. Amusement park attendees wanted to enjoy their day with friends and family, and instead, two riders fell thirty-four feet, and the others in the car were also injured.

Fire crews had to rescue a total of 10 rides, and six of them were taken to a hospital, but the two riders that fell were seriously injured. The fire department had to use tower truck ladders to rescue the stranded passengers dangling from the ride. This is not the experience the attendees were looking for.

Personal Injuries Cause Unnecessary Tragedy with Unanswered Questions

No one expects injuries and trauma on a day that is supposed to be filled with fun and laughter, pictures, and cotton candy. But due to someone’s negligence, lives were almost tragically lost. Those victims would probably be paying exorbitant hospital bills and missing many days at work. At Colson Hicks Eidson, our Miami personal injury attorneys help victims find justice for their loved ones lost due to someone’s negligence. We want you to help you find justice for those impacted by a personal injury and want to speak to you immediately.

Victims who have experienced a personal injury due to someone’s negligence usually deal with:

  • Emotional and physical trauma
  • Loss of mobility
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of cognitive skills
  • Loss of time with family and loved ones
  • Psychological issues caused by the injury

These issues can be temporary, but many times are permanent and leave a lasting scar on the victim. The road to recovery can be slow for those who have sustained an injury, and very soon, the bills start to pile up, and they need help getting back on their feet. The statute of limitations is four years for a personal injury case in Florida, but we want you to call us today so we can start our investigation and help get you the compensation you deserve.
