Millions of people visit theme parks a year. They go to have fun, enjoy time with the family, and create memories. Unfortunately, accidents have occurred at theme parks over the years. When you’re impacted by an accident, it’s important to establish causation.
Listen to an Expert Witness
A park expert witness can use their vast knowledge to help you with causation. Whether there was a shooting at the theme park, a major accident with a ride or something else, you need to know how this could have happened. A witness will be able to identify more about what could have happened, including safety restraints that failed. Lawyers can invite a park expert witness to testify within your case, making it easier for a jury to see where the theme park failed in providing the necessary level of safety.
Watch What Goes On
When there is an accident, it will often involve watching the footage. There may be a camera that picked up what happened. Additionally, people with cell phones could have easily recorded the accident. Watching any available footage will make it easier to see what really happened. It may be necessary to see the theme park operate on other days, too, to see how things should operate as opposed to how they operated when you were there.
Talk with Suppliers
You can find out a lot from suppliers. Find out what safety precautions are in place, how often they’re inspected, and what equipment was last purchased from the theme park to provide the needed safety measures.
Accidents happen, but there is always a cause. If you need to figure out why something happened, there are ways to do so. Only after causation is established can you focus on making sure such a thing never happens again.
