Action Park Mountain Creek Accident Injury Lawyer

Table of Contents

    In many ways, the return of Action Park at Mountain Creek is a portal back to the summer days of the 1980s and early 1990s. In those days, Action Park attracted patrons from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York by promising thrill rides and attractions that were not available anywhere else. It is undisputed that Action Park left a strong impression on the regional culture and memory – one so strong that the park was revived for the 2014 season.  The management behind Action Park’s return promises all the fun that people have come to expect with an emphasis on safety.

    What Was All the Fuss About at the Old Action Park?

    The version of Action Park that was active through the 80s and the early 1990s was known for its one-of-a-kind thrill rides. A simple google search reveals a treasure-trove of memories from the park. Some commentators remarked on the alpine slide where some recounted exiting the ride with severe abrasions. Others remembered jumping into large pools of icy waters on the Tarzan Swing.  The 50 to 60-degree water shocked riders and was believed to have caused or contributed to a heart attack in 1984.

    However perhaps the most infamous stories revolve around the loop-de-loop waterslide that was present in Action Park. Although the slide was closed for much of its existence, a few brave souls have recounted their experiences. Some remember that it was possible to become stuck in the slide. Others recall striking their head or limbs on the slide due to the disorientation caused by the darkness and inversion.

    In any case, the new Action Park is committed to “bring[ing] back all the thrills, but none of the spills”. However, even parks that are safe for millions of people can have isolated accidents and injuries.

    What Types of Risks Exist at Amusement Parks?

    Injury can happen at any theme or amusement park that offers high-speed rides and other thrills. Parks attempt to minimize the dangers that you will face, but injury can still occur in isolated situations. Some risks that are common to all theme parks include:

    • Slip and Falls – While a simple mechanism of injury, a slip or a trip can lead to catastrophic injury. If the fall takes place on a stairway or when boarding or exiting a ride, the risk of serious injury increases.
    • Mechanical failures – Rides must be routinely maintained. If rides are operated under stressful conditions or outside of their specifications the risk of failure becomes higher.  Mechanical failure can even lead to death.
    • Negligence – Inattention to conditions by a ride operator can have tragic consequences.
    • Summer storms – The heat of summer can often bring in afternoon thunderstorms. In parks with towering rollercoasters ad large pools of water, electrical storms can present an increased risk.
    • Parking lot injuries – Believe it or not, many amusement park injuries can occur prior to even passing through the park gates. In the parking lot, the arriving guests may be distracted while departing guests may be in a hurry to get home. In either instance, serious bodily injury can occur to pedestrians or other motorists.

    If you have suffered an injury due to one of the above reasons, or due to different circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation. However, working with an experienced personal injury lawyer can increase the likelihood of a favorable settlement or jury verdict.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
