Miami Park Accident Lawyer
If you or your child were injured in a park accident, the city, HOA, or other party that owns and is responsible for managing the park may be liable for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages. Common park accidents involve trip and falls and defective playground equipment, though there are other scenarios in which one or more parties can be sued for compensation if it is found that they acted carelessly or recklessly. The Miami park accident lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law are here to help you determine what your next steps are in the recovery process.
City and HOA Park Accidents
City parks are usually safe places, though this is obviously not always the case. Even if you were diligently supervising your child at the time of the incident, or you were merely walking across a field, there are still countless things that can go wrong, resulting in serious and catastrophic injury to your child. Some of the most serious injuries occur on otherwise benign days: tripping and falling in an exposed utility box can easily snap a knee, swinging on a swing set with dangerously old chains could put a child in the hospital with a spinal cord injury. We handle all types of park accidents, whether the negligent party was a park owner, such as a municipality, or a park user.
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Dangerous or defective playground equipment
- Poorly maintained park infrastructure, including bench seating and gazebos
- Assaults and attempted assaults
- Sexual assault
- Dog attacks
The defendant in a park accident could be the municipality or HOA responsible for maintaining the park, the playground equipment manufacturer, or a private citizen if the incident was an assault or a dog attack.
Amusement Park, Miniature Golf, and Water Park Accidents
Amusement parks and water parks are another type of place where no one expects to be injured. While there is certainly a thrill in careening down a 90-foot water slide, we expect that all of the rides and attractions have been thoroughly tested, designed, and maintained for safety. Water park and amusement park victims can seek compensation from the park itself if they sustained an injury caused by park negligence, such as:
- Trip and fall
- Slip and fall
- Defective ride
- Malfunctioning ride
- Improper maintenance of an attraction
- Improper ride operation
- No lifeguard on duty
- Negligent response to an emergency
