There are many tourist attractions in Florida that host tens of thousands of guests every year. Property owners and hotel managers are legally obligated to keep visitors as safe as possible on their premises.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts blamed for tourist personal injury

Theme parks and resorts see thousands of visitors every year, and the care of these visitors falls on the employees.

In Florida, one tourist personal injury is being blamed on Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

Coaster derails and causes multiple personal injuries

Roller coasters are a favorite attraction for many theme park visitors. These exciting rides are usually carefully maintained by the park staff in order to prevent them from malfunctioning. In Florida, both locals and tourists flock to theme parks of all sizes to enjoy roller coasters and a variety of other attractions, and very few believe that they will be injured during their visit. If these rides do malfunction, then a tourist personal injury could occur.

Tourist personal injury: Wet floor blamed for Sea World accident

Sea World is a popular Florida tourist attraction. The mixture of thrill rides and animal attractions provide a unique experience for park patrons of all ages.

If the attractions and the areas are not maintained properly, or if guests are not informed of potential risks, then the park might be held responsible for a tourist personal injury.

Amusement park blamed for tourist personal injury

Tourist personal injury claims arise after airboat accident

Tourism is a major industry in Florida, and both local and aspiring business owners are constantly searching for new and exciting ways to attract visitors. Many thrill seekers have turned to some of these more daring activities for entertainment, while others have turned towards activities that seem a bit safer. Riding in airboats could be considered either a daring and exciting activity or a safe and relaxing activity depending on the individual. However, these are very powerful machines, and a small mistake can result in tourist personal injury no matter how they view the activity. Tourists on two airboats fitted to carry several passengers each were the unfortunate victims of one such accident.
