Lakemont Park Accident Injury Lawyer

Table of Contents

    Amusement parks and water parks attract millions upon millions of visitors by offering enticing thrills, chills, and fun ways to cool down on hot summer days.  But while these attractions can supply warm memories and family entertainment, they can also cause serious permanent injuries or even wrongful death.  Sadly for the victims and their loved ones, the legal and financial aftermath of an accident can often be as stressful and overwhelming as the accident itself.  You are already totally occupied with trying to recover from your physical wounds, your emotional suffering, and the financial strain of your medical bills.  When you are busy coping with so much change, adjustment, and hardship, the last thing you should have to do is try to seek rightful compensation without the benefit of professional support.

    Fortunately, you don’t have to face the challenge on your own.  If you or someone you love was hurt at Lakemont Park and the Island Water Park in Pennsylvania, call the Lakemont Park accident injury lawyers of The Reiff Law Firm at (215) 709-6940 to schedule a free and confidential consultation.  Don’t allow a crucial deadline to pass you by: call us today to start exploring your options together.

    Common Causes of Amusement Park Injuries

    Historic Lakemont Park has been in operation since 1899, making it one of the oldest parks in the United States.  The park features about two dozen rides, including water rides and roller coasters. In 1991, a ride operator’s leg was snared on the Little Leaper kiddie roller coaster, causing serious injury and eventually necessitating an amputation.  This incident serves as a reminder that while parks are generally safe, devastating accidents can and do sometimes occur.  Some of the common causes of injuries and incidents at theme parks of any size or type  include:

    • Negligent Maintenance
      • Accumulated rust
      • Tight or loose cables
      • Corrosion
      • Electrical failures
    • Ride Defects
      • Sharp edges or corners
      • Defective safety harnesses
      • Defective locks, belts, and buckles
      • Malfunctioning lap bars
      • Mechanical failure
      • Manufacturing defects
      • Weak or broken welds or bolts
    • Unsafe Operation
      • Failure to stop the ride
      • Allowing passengers who do not meet physical requirements on rides
      • Allowing passengers wearing potentially hazardous attire onto rides
      • Failure to check safety restraints during ride loading
    • Hazardous Premises
      • Poor lighting
      • Negligent security
      • Easily accessible high voltage areas
      • Lack of safety notices and warnings

    Common Injuries and Accident Statistics

    When any landowner organization fails to prevent and correct dangers, the consequences to patrons can include catastrophic injuries, radical and costly medical procedures, and/or wrongful death. Accident victims can suffer injuries not limited to:

    • Amputation
    • Bone Fractures
    • Disfigurement
    • Drowning
    • Head Injuries
    • Lacerations
    • Neck Injuries

    ...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.
