Florida is one of the most popular states for theme or amusement parks in the entire United States, including the largest theme park in central Florida.

Most often reported in the news or the extreme and outrageous cases whereby a wrongful death has occurred from an accident at a theme or amusement park.

These types of personal injury lawsuits must be handled by law firms with experience in these sorts of areas because of the depth of the litigation.

Under Florida law, State Statute 768.19 Governs all wrongful death cases pertaining to their statute of limitations and the cause for damages. [i]

There is almost always an investigation carried out, both internally and externally, regarding what sort of accident occurred to place the person in a position where they could have gotten seriously injured or even killed by the defect in the type of roller coaster or theme park ride that they were injured on.

There is a specific procedure that must be carried out in order to ensure that the chain of evidence is not tampered with or incorrectly performed.

Most often, wrongful death is the type of personal injury claim that allows for the surviving members of the person’s family, or the estate, to bring a suit against the theme park due to the negligence in the roller coaster ride.

Some of the typical expenses, aside from the actual personal injury lawsuit of wrongful death against the theme park, are the funeral expenses of the wrongful death, the pain and suffering caused to the family and to the decedent, the amounts of income that the person would have made, and the compensation for the loss of the person’s life and companionship with the family members.
