Each year many adults and their children suffer moderate to severe injuries at amusement parks and waterparks located throughout Southern California. In a large majority of the cases‚ something could have been done‚ on a management level‚ to prevent anything from happening. Yet time and again‚ families find themselves stuck footing the bill for injuries that are most certainly the park’s responsibility. Unfortunately‚ while some of these injuries are recoverable‚ too many of them are permanently disfiguring or life-altering traumas. Some of the more common wounds we have encountered with waterpark accidents include:
- Loss of oxygen to the brain or accidental drowning
- Nerve damage to the head‚ neck or spine
- Deep lacerations and abrasions
- Simple and compound factures
If you‚ or a member of your family‚ have suffered anyone of the aforementioned injuries‚ contact our San Diego waterpark accident lawyers today for more information. While parks can be held legally responsible for your pain‚ just as any individual or small business‚ doing so requires a great deal of research and evidence. The longer you wait to start building your case‚ the harder it will be to prove the owner was negligent in their actions. In addition‚ California’s statute of limitations starts the day of your accident‚ which means according to the state‚ you only have a limited amount of time in which to file. Failure to submit your claim before the deadline can mean a complete loss of rights and compensation.
So‚ don’t wait any longer. Call the Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers today at (619) 233-5020 and schedule a free and confidential case evaluation.
What Kind of Compensation Will I be Able to Collect in San Diego?
Ultimately‚ the kind of award you can expect depends entirely on the types of injury you received and the overall circumstances surrounding your accident. Were the wounds sustained severe or moderate? What were the underlying factors that led to your accident and how did the at-fault party respond? Is the waterpark’s insurance company willing to work with your settlement or do they wish to contend it? Each of these questions will play a large role in what kind of compensation you can expect. However‚ regardless of amounts‚ you will likely receive awards from one or more of the following categories:
- Emergency medical expenses
- Loss of wages or income
- Pain and suffering
- Doctor’s bills
- Hospital fees
