Types of Disney World Accidents
Disney World serves thousands of visitors each day requiring park employees to safely operate rides, clean walkways, and prepare food. The high volume of visitors can be overwhelming and park employees can make mistakes. The situation can become especially dangerous when large crowds gather for a fireworks display or parade. Pathways can become blocked by spectators and staff may not be able to fix dangerous conditions before a guest is injured.
- Food poisoning accidents
- Roller coaster accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Transportation accidents
- Accidents from rides
- Among others
Disney World Lawsuits
Walt Disney World has faced liability for injuries occurring on its premises over the years. On December 31, 1999, six visitors suffered burns after fireworks meant for the New Year’s Eve display exploded near them. On July 5, 2009, a college age employee operating the monorail died after his train crashed into another train due to a ride malfunction. On March 23, 2010, seven guests suffered injuries and a driver was seriously injured after two buses collided with each other near Epcot. Less than two weeks later, a 9-year-old boy died after a crash with a bus in the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground (i). These stories are just a few of the incidents that have occurred at Disney World. Victims of the theme park’s negligence should talk to an attorney in order to protect their rights.
