Haunted House or Attraction Injuries – Don’t be Afraid to Pursue a Claim!
While this year’s trick-or-treaters have come and gone, Halloween-related injuries may still be showing themselves — particularly from public or private haunted houses that are so popular this time of year. Injuries are all-too-common when you are in a scary, dark environment such as a haunted house or other Halloween event. As you move through the unlit corridors and exhibits, you are in danger of falling, being struck by the equipment or props, and, in some cases, suffering head injuries or other health problems. In many Halloween attractions, there are motorized props that jump out at ticket purchasers, as well as goo or blood that may drip to the floor. This only adds to the risk. Thankfully, there are remedies you can seek if your injury meets the requirements for premises liability or personal injury.
In Florida, a haunted house injury may entitle you to compensation. If you are injured, you should immediately call an attorney. Statutes of limitations or incidental destruction of evidence may seriously hamper your case, and the passage of time necessarily compounds these issues.
No matter your injury, Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore is here to help. Our Tampa personal injury attorneys will discuss with you possible remedies available through premises liability law. Generally speaking, if the owner of the property presented an unsafe condition and/or was negligent in maintaining the property, causing you injury, you may be eligible for compensation. If you have questions or concerns following a Halloween injury, give us a call today, and we can help you sort through your options. Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore specializes as your Tampa FL premises liability attorney, and we would be happy to talk with you.
