Fort Lauderdale, FL (Vocus) July 12, 2010
Boone and Davis, Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys, are taking on Universal City Development Partners, owner and operator of Universal Orlando Resort, on behalf of a seriously injured client. Filed on July 15th, 2009, case number 2009-CA-022565-0, the client allegedly slipped and fell on liquid spilled on the floor in the Amphitheatre at the Animal Actors Show, suffering multiple injuries that resulted in surgery and required metal hardware.
Michael Davis, a principal and theme park accident lawyer at Boone and Davis, explained, “Our client was severely injured while on the Universal Orlando Resort property through no fault of her own. She visited the resort in anticipation of a relaxing, enjoyable afternoon and ended up in the hospital because someone neglected to properly maintain the public areas after a slippery liquid had been spilled. Our client endured extensive surgery in order to implant pins and metal plates to correct the damage sustained, resulting in extensive scarring. It’s simply unacceptable that this kind of situation can develop at a theme park, resulting in life changing injuries for innocent visitors.”
In the last five years, there has been a sharp increase in the number of theme park accidents that have resulted in injuries requiring at least a visit to an emergency room. There are several reasons for the rise in injuries, including reduced budgets leading to less vigilance and more potential problems, overcrowding of theme parks, and faster, more dangerous attractions.
Davis elaborated on the current case, saying, “Our client’s injuries and the resulting scarring and need for surgery were a direct result of her fall after slipping on liquid at the Universal Orlando Resort’s Animal Actors Show, but Universal is denying any responsibility. As a result, we’ve filed a case before Judge Strickland at the Circuit Court in Orange County in order to get our client the monetary help she deserves in order to move past this unfortunate situation and continue to heal properly.”
