Clementon Park and Splash World Accident Injury Lawyer

Table of Contents

    First opened over 100 years ago in 1907, Clementon Park and Splash World in New Jersey is one of the oldest operational theme parks in the world.  Amusement parks and water parks like Clementon are a beloved American pastime, and serve up countless warm memories of summer fun to adults and children every year.  But if an accident should ever take place, the consequences to the victim can be devastating.

    Water park and theme park accidents have the potential to lead to debilitating injuries, psychological trauma, and ongoing financial hardship in the form of missed work and large medical bills.  If you or someone you love was hurt at an amusement park, you may be able to receive compensation for the losses you have incurred.  However, you need to act fast, because the statute of limitations places a time limit on how long you have to open a claim after being hurt.

    Don’t let your window of opportunity close.  To schedule a free and confidential legal consultation with an experienced Clementon Park and Splash World accident injury lawyer, call the law offices of The Reiff Law Firm at (215) 709-6940 today.  If you’ve been hurt, we may be able to help.

    Common Causes of Theme Park Accidents and Injuries

    Amusement and water parks are generally safe.  However, major accidents have been documented at parks of all types and sizes in locations around the country and indeed around the world.  According to statistics, on average about 7,000 people are hospitalized every year, while approximately four to five are killed.  In 2006, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported 8,800 injuries.

    These fatalities and injuries have been ascribed to rides ranging from roller coasters to merry-go-rounds to wave pools.  Other injuries which have nothing to do with the actual rides have been attributed to slip and fall accidents, which can be caused by conditions like puddles of fluid, broken stairs or railings, or loose wires on the ground.

    Roller coasters were involved in 16 out of the 51 deaths which occurred from 1987 to 2000, with the second leading culprit being whirling rides (e.g. the tilt-a-whirl) at 11 deaths.  However, attractions do not need to involve extreme speeds or heights to pose a potential hazard.  In fact, the opposite may be true.  For example, one study published in Clinical Pediatrics found that nearly 21% of injuries to patients under 18 years old were caused by carousels, which average around just 10 miles per hour.

    Water parks have also been involved in incidents, approximately 86% of which are attributed to water slides.  In 2006, roughly 3,100 people were hurt on water slides.  Needless to say, where water rides are involved, drowning becomes a special concern — particularly for young children, who can drown in just a few inches of water.

    Theme park accidents, deaths, and injuries can be caused by variables like:

    • Malfunctioning ride components.
    • Substandard maintenance procedures.
    • Inattentive ride operators.
    • Defective parts and equipment.
    • Failure to post warnings and safety notices.
    • Excessively rough handling by security guards.
    • Flaws in a ride’s design and/or construction or assembly.

    Some types of serious injuries which can occur include:

    • Burns
    • Facial Disfigurement
    • Head Injuries
    • Hand Injuries
    • Internal Injuries
    • Multiple Fractures
    • Neck Injuries
    • Severe Lacerations
    • Severed Fingers/Limbs
    • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
    • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    Catastrophic injuries have the potential to be permanently life-altering.  For example, if a spinal cord injury causes partial or complete paralysis, that person may then require care and supervision, and may lose their career and source of income.

    If you or someone you love was seriously injured at Clementon Park and Splash World, you may be able to collect compensation for the damages against you.  To schedule a private case evaluation free of charge, call the law offices of The Reiff Law Firm today at (215) 709-6940, or contact us online.

    ...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.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    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.

    I greatly appreciate the care and compassion the Reiff Law Firm has given to my family at a very difficult time. They left no stone unturned in their investigation and what started as a small settlement ended $100, 000 more than expected. They did not give up and treated us like family.
