Universal Studios Accident Injury Lawyer

    Theme parks are responsible for taking reasonable measures toward ensuring the safety of their guests. If a park is negligent in its duties, and a guest is killed or sustains an injury as a result of that negligence, the park may be financially liable for the resulting damages. If you were injured at a Universal Studios location, or if someone you love was wrongfully killed, you could have a claim to significant compensation for your losses, pain, and suffering.

    A History of Accidents at Universal Studios

    Universal parks safely entertain millions of guests each year, and the vast majority of visitors never encounter any issues. However, accidents have taken place in the past.

    For example, in summer of 2011, a rider on the Dragon Challenge roller coaster was blinded after being struck by an object. Although the attraction was deemed safe, the following month, another passenger on the Dragon Challenge was also struck in the face with an unidentified object.

    Some accidents at Universal Studios have not involved the rides themselves. In April of 2011, for example, a man was killed after being tasered for disorderly conduct. The autopsy determined that excessive tasering and handling by security guards contributed to the man’s death.

    Furthermore, people can be injured in slip and fall accidents if a park is poorly maintained. Wet surfaces, unsecured cables, wobbly railings, uneven surfaces, and other factors can all contribute to slip and fall accidents.

    Injuries Commonly Caused by Universal Studios Theme Park Accidents

    Injuries which can result from amusement park accidents include:

    • Facial Injuries
    • Head Injuries
    • Multiple Fractures
    • Nerve Damage
    • Severe Lacerations
    • Internal Bleeding
    • Neck Injuries
    • Vision Loss
    • Organ Damage
    • Severe Burns
    • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
    • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    These medical problems can be contributed to by a variety of issues, ranging from rides, to ride operators, to security personnel, to the physical condition of the park itself.

    For example, if a ride operator is negligent in his or her duties and permits a child who is too small onto a ride, the child could be hurt because they are not properly secured. If a ride has a defect, such as a lap bar which fails to lock, a passenger could fall out or be ejected. If a security guard uses excessive force, the victim can suffer from broken bones or even be killed. If a guardrail is broken, a patron could easily fall and break their nose, wrist, or sustain other 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.
