The Newport Beach personal injury law firm of Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, LLP will be representing two victims of the recent Knott’s Berry Farm Pony Express ride accident, which occurred the night of October 7, 2010. We are representing victims injured in this amusement park ride accident, one of whom said that both he and his girlfriend’s mother had sustained back injuries.
The ride accident happened when the Pony Express malfunctioned and one of the trains drifted backward and hit another set of cars. The Knott’s Berry Farm accident is being investigated by the California Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), which oversees amusement parks. Ten people were transported to the hospital with what were described as “minor” injuries. The investigation of this injury accident could take several days or even weeks.
My heart goes out to everyone who was injured in this ride accident. I wish all the victims here the very best for a speedy and complete recovery.
Prompt Medical Attention is Important
I would strongly recommend that the victims who were on the Pony Express ride that night and are now experiencing aches and pains, get fully evaluated by their doctors. Neck and back injuries, often, do not manifest immediately after an accident — be it a car accident or an amusement park ride accident. Sometimes, it could take days or even weeks to surface. However, they can be painful and result in a lot of expense to the victim, particularly in diagnostic and treatment costs, as well as extended chiropractic care or physical therapy.
In such cases, it is very important not to settle prematurely. If you are a victim of this Knott’s Berry Farm ride accident, please do not talk to any insurance adjusters or attorneys for the other party until you have consulted your own personal injury lawyer, who will fight for your rights and look out for your best interests. The big corporations that run these large amusement parks will have a powerful legal defense team on their side. They also get their insurance people to work on a case right away so they can protect their interests and pay out as little as possible to injured victims. It is important for victims to remember not to sign any papers or agreements without consulting a lawyer first.
There are still several unanswered questions in this case. Was this ride accident the result of negligence on the part of the amusement park? Was it being maintained and inspected as required by the state? Was this ride accident the result of a defective part or component of the ride? Was the accident caused by operator error? Depending on where the fault lies, the appropriate party can be held liable for the accident and resulting injuries. An experienced lawyer will stay on top of the personal injury investigation, ensure that a victim’s rights are protected, and that they receive just compensation for the injuries and losses.
