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