    SeaWorld Accidents and Liability

    With a decades-long history and locations open around the country, massive amusement chain SeaWorld has hosted over 145 million visitors since its debut in 1964. Several of these visitors experienced injuries while visiting the park.

    In late 2012, for instance, 8-year-old Jillian Thomas sustained multiple puncture wounds to her hand while attempting to feed one of the park’s dolphins. According to Thomas’ mother, “They did not tell us to look out for any signs of infection. We had to ask for Band-Aids.” Thomas’ father alleges there were no disclaimers or warning signs posted.

    Amusement parks are responsible for taking reasonable measures to safeguard their visitors. If such measures are not taken, or if hazards go ignored and uncorrected, the park may potentially be considered liable for any damages which may result to victims.

    For example, if a park’s maintenance crew does not make the appropriate repairs to a ride, and that ride consequently malfunctions and injures a passenger, issues of liability may arise. In another example, if the property itself is not properly maintained — for example, if unsecured cables which should have been tied back cause a slip and fall accident — the park may again be potentially liable for resulting damages.

    Slip and fall accidents are a serious health concern in the United States, particularly among the elderly. In fact, falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries to adults aged 65 and older, according to the CDC.

    According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in 2006, amusement park injuries were divided almost evenly between children and adults, though children aged 10 to 14 represented just under 20% of all injuries requiring hospitalization.

    Common Injuries Sustained at SeaWorld Amusement Park

    Some of the more common injuries and negative health effects which theme park accident victims may experience include:

    • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
    • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)
    • Severe Lacerations
    • Bone Fractures
    • Back Injuries

    These and other injuries may carry lifelong repercussions, such as permanent full or partial paralysis, facial disfigurement, or limb amputation.
    If you or someone you love was hurt at a SeaWorld theme park, you may be able to receive financial compensation for your losses. To schedule a private case evaluation at absolutely no cost, call the attorneys of The Reiff Law Firm at (215) 709-6940 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.
