Theme park liability for wrongful deaths in Florida

Florida is home to some of the most popular theme parks in the world, and the highlights of many of these theme parks are roller coasters and other rides. However, these rides can be dangerous, and while rare, it is not unknown for a person to die while on a roller coaster. When this happens, it may be possible to hold the theme park liable for the victim's death through a wrongful death lawsuit.

Cruise ships must do more to stop people from falling overboard

Cruise ships leave Florida ports on a regular basis, full of passengers expecting to have a good time. However, tragic cruise ship accidents can occur, leading to fatalities. For example, from 2000 to 2018, 284 individuals on cruise ships have fallen overboard. This amounts to 1.5 individuals on average falling overboard every month. The cruise ship industry and other groups state that such incidents occur when the victims are being irresponsible, for example, when they are intoxicated or careless. However, others claim this is a pressing problem in the industry that is being ignored.
