Walt Disney Accident

disneyland entrance signAh, Disney - a place of happiness and vacation memories with family. When visiting a Disney resort, you would assume that smiles are abundant everywhere you look. And they are, for the most part. However, it would be remiss to assume that even Disney magic can prevent accidents. Over the years, plenty of accidents have occurred at the many resorts around the world, and the Skyliner seems to have collisions so frequently that news websites have a section dedicated to the event.

Maybe this is a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that lots of people have experienced injuries at a Disney amusement park. If this is the case for you, contact The Injury Firm today for professional assistance. Even against a large company like Disney, you’re entitled to compensation if you’ve experienced an injury due to negligence or inattention.

Incidents at Walt Disney World

Over the years, numerous accidents and deaths have occurred at Disney World. While some were inflicted upon workers, others were examples of a vacation injury. For example, molding fell on five tourists back in 1990 and injured them while visiting the famous Haunted Mansion attraction. Meanwhile, a track change malfunction killed a monorail driver as his train collided with another.

Back in 2009, a performer was taking part in a Captain Jack Pirate tutorial only to fall and suffer serious injuries. A few days after the incident, he died in hospital. In one of the most documented accidents, a young four-year-old boy was involved in a theme park accident that resulted in their death by drowning.

After consulting with a personal injury lawyer, the family decided to sue for the Disney accident. Eventually, a wrongful death lawsuit was filed. While no witnesses saw the young boy, Joel Goode, enter the part of the ride where his body was later found, the jury sided with the parents. As a result, each parent was awarded $1 million. However, the mother was found to be 50% responsible for the accident for her own negligence.

Potential Injuries at Walt Disney Amusement Park

As mentioned in the introduction, walking away from Disney with an injury is the last thing on the mind for most people. Yet, the evidence is clear that it happens. In fact, if you want to see a full list of incidents at Disney World, there’s even a Wikipedia page dedicated to it.

Therefore, there’s no universal list of injuries that one can experience from a Disney accident. Ultimately, it depends on the nature of the accident. While some people slip or fall in an eatery, others are involved in freak accidents (like having molding fall from a ceiling!).

In 2004, a cast member was eight years into their career with Disney when they were struck by a float from Beauty and the Beast. Though the accident had not occurred in front of guests, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined the company for allowing employees into restricted areas.

In 2019, a man in his seventies fractured his leg while climbing into one of the ride vehicles. As you can see, the injuries experienced at an amusement park such as Disney are wide and varied. With this in mind, get in touch with The Injury Firm today. Whether it was a theme park accident, a slip and fall incident, or another form of vacation injury, we have the experience and resources that you need.




Importance of a Personal Injury Lawyer

After a Disney accident, you can be sure that the company will do everything it can to limit compensation even if this means making a small loss with a settlement. If Disney offers a settlement, this shows that you have a case against them. The problem is that you will, in most cases, decline your right to a legal case against the company if you accept a settlement.

Every year, victims of accidents accept small settlements and then come to regret the decision when they learn that their case was worth much more. Before accepting anything, before even speaking with Disney representatives and insurance companies, contact The Injury Firm because we will protect your legal rights.

Why should you hire a personal injury lawyer? In truth, there are several reasons:

  • They will protect your legal rights
  • They understand how to build a case against large companies
  • They will gather statements from witnesses
  • They will only take their fee after the case is resolved
  • They will help you to recuperate compensation for damages while you focus on recovering from your injuries

While on the note of compensation, the amount you receive depends on the damages you’ve experienced. For example, your case could seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages.

Deaths at Disney World aren’t common, but they also aren’t impossible. Similarly, many people experience injuries due to negligence and irresponsibility at Disney parks each year. After a Disney accident, you deserve to have professionals fighting your corner. With a personal injury lawyer, you prevent mistakes and hold the right people accountable for your accident.
