How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit Against an Amusement Park?
Our system of justice places limits on the amount of time within which people must take action to protect their legal rights. The deadline to file a lawsuit against a company or another person is different depending on the type of lawsuit and the state in which the lawsuit will be filed. The legal term for this deadline is statute of limitations.
If you have been injured at an amusement park, it is important to know the statute of limitations — or the deadline by which you must file a lawsuit against the amusement park or whoever else is responsible for causing your injury. The deadline is based on the law in the state where the amusement park is located, as well as on other factors. The statute of limitations in Florida for negligence claims is four years, which means you must file a lawsuit against a theme park within four years of the date of injury, or you will lose your right to sue.Talk to an Attorney As Soon As Possible After an Amusement Park Injury
Different states have different statutes of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. If you or a family member suffered serious injury at a theme park anywhere in the country, and you have questions about your right to file a lawsuit against the amusement park, it is wise to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as early as possible. The attorney can tell you what the statute of limitations is in the state where the amusement park is located.Do Not Wait Until the Deadline to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Even though you may have as long as four years to file a lawsuit against an amusement park if you were injured during a visit, it is rarely a good idea to wait that long. Quick action is one of the keys to success in personal injury claims, including injury claims against amusement parks. The sooner you get help from a personal injury law firm, the better chance your lawyer will have to collect evidence and interview witnesses while the events are still recent.Learn More About Amusement Park Lawsuits
