Theme park accidents can occur due to machine malfunctions, which may be a result of negligence when it comes to manufacturing, assembling, maintaining, etc. Additionally, if theme park employees do not carefully follow rules, serious accidents can occur as a result. If you are injured at an amusement park due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation. Read on to learn more about amusement park accidents in Texas.
How Long do I Have to File a Claim?
Amusement park injuries can be serious, and even deadly. If you are injured at an amusement park, you may suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. You may deserve compensation for burdens such as lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, at-home care, and more. In order to recover the compensation you deserve, you will have to file your personal injury claim on time. In Texas, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the accident. Failing to file within two years will likely mean losing the opportunity to recover the compensation you deserve. Two years may sound like a long time, but it can be difficult to take action when you are recovering from a serious injury. Reach out to an experienced attorney as soon as possible to avoid missing any important deadlines.
Taking Legal Action
In order to recover compensation, you will have to provide proof that some form of negligence occurred to cause your accident. To do this, you should be sure to take pictures and videos at the scene of the accident. If possible, document the hazardous conditions that caused your accident to occur. If anyone saw your accident occur, ask for their contact information, as they may be able to corroborate your version of events. Additionally, be sure to seek medical attention. This will provide you with important proof of the origin and extent of your injuries. Ask your doctor for a copy of any relevant medical documents.
