    Accidents on Disneyland Rides and Attractions

    Disneyland Resort is one of the older theme parks in America, first opening in California in 1955. Multiple fatal and nonfatal accidents have occurred during its long history.  Attractions which have been involved in visitor and employee deaths and injuries over the years include, but are not limited to:

    • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    • California Screamin’
    • Frontierland
    • Hyperion Theater
    • It’s A Small World
    • Matterhorn Bobsleds
    • The Monorail
    • Sailing Ship Columbia
    • Skyway
    • Space Mountain
    • Storybook Land Canal Boats

    Some of these attractions, such as the California Screamin’ and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coasters, have actually been involved in multiple incidents.  Several other rides, including the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the famed Space Mountain, were voluntarily closed by Disney due to safety concerns raised by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA.  These rides have since been reopened.


    Causes of Deaths and Injuries at Disneyland

    The reasons behind deaths and injuries at Disneyland vary.  While some of these deaths were attributed to natural causes, others were caused by negligence on behalf of the park.  Causes for incidents at the park have included:

    • Defective components in rides and attractions, including wheels and cleats.
    • Direct strikes from moving rides.
    • Falls from heights.
    • Faulty brakes.
    • Unstable platforms.

    Like their causes, the types of injuries which have been sustained by guests during Disneyland’s history have also varied, ranging from the minor to the fatal.  Some medical issues which have been documented include:

    • Amputations
    • Blunt Force Trauma
    • Broken Bones
    • Cardiac Arrest
    • Internal Bleeding
    • Paralysis
    • Severed Fingers
    • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

    Disneyland Slip and Fall Attorneys

    Typically, amusement park accidents are associated with the rides themselves. However, theme park visitors can still sustain debilitating injury — even without ever boarding a single attraction. Slip and fall accidents can also occur.

    Slip and fall is precisely what it sounds like, and can happen to anyone regardless of age or physical fitness.  Nonetheless, elderly persons are disproportionately affected, with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reporting that falls are the number one ranking cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries alike among people aged 65 or older.  If such an accident occurs because of a hazardous condition at the park, the park may be liable for the resulting financial damages.

    Common causes of slip and fall include but are not limited to:

    • Loose or uneven flooring.
    • Pools of liquid.
    • Trip hazards, such as unsecured electrical cords.
    • Unsecured debris and clutter.
    • Wobbly or unstable floors, steps, and railings.

    If you or someone you love was hurt in a ride accident or slip and fall accident at Disneyland, the attorneys of The Reiff Law Firm may be able to assist.  To schedule a private case evaluation at no charge, call our law offices at (215) 709-6940, or contact us online today.

    ...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.
