Injuries at hotels, resorts, Disney, Universal or Busch theme parks

An Orlando newspaper's review of nearly 500 lawsuits that injured guests filed against Disney, Universal and Busch Entertainment, led to these conclusions:

  • Few of those who sue a theme park rush into it.   Three quarters of those injured waited at least a year before filing a lawsuit.  Nearly 20% waited almost four years before filing the case in court.  
  • Once sued, a theme park rarely backs down quickly.   More than two-thirds of the cases filed against a theme park remained active in court for at least a year.  Some lasted several years.
  • Most lawsuits are settled out of court.   Fewer than 2% of the cases filed reached a trial.  The rest were settled.   The theme parks won all of the cases that went to trial.
  • Most settlements are secret.  In nearly all of the cases that were settled the theme park insisted on a confidentiality agreement that required the injured person to agree not to discuss or publicize the settlement.

Our office has handled many cases against hotels, resorts and theme parks.   Here are our comments on the newspaper's conclusions: 

The reason many injured people wait before filing a case in court is that they are from out of the area, and they just want to recover a reasonable amount, such as their medical bills.  It is only when the hotel, resort or theme park turns them down that they consult with an attorney.

If the hotel, resort or theme park thinks that there is a possibility that it will lose the case at trial, it will settle the case.  That's why almost all cases are settled before a trial.

If you have been injured at a Florida hotel, resort or theme park (such as Disney, Universal or Busch), you should consult with an experienced attorney right away.  Our office has handled many of these claims, both in the Orlando area and all over Florida.  Steven Meyer is board certified by The Florida Bar as an expert in civil trial law.  This area of the law includes injury claims.  Only about one percent of the lawyers in Florida are board certified experts in this area of the law.   We offer a free consultation.
