Amusement Park Ride Injuries
The Law Offices of Barry Novack has combined an in-depth understanding of engineering matters with extensive personal injury legal experience to develop a significant record of success in the area of amusement park ride injury lawsuits.
Although rides at theme parks, fairs, carnivals, and amusement parks are supposed to be safe, riders are occasionally harmed. In some tragic cases, theme park visitors have even lost their lives. Injuries sometimes occur when a ride malfunctions, but many people do not know that riders can also suffer injury when a ride functions normally. Amusement parks generally do not warn the public that, even when rides operate as designed, some people cannot handle the physical demands involved. Some riders can suffer injuries as serious as a brain hemorrhage as a result of simple ride dynamics.
Attorneys at the Law Offices of Barry Novack have extensive expertise in personal injury cases arising out of amusement park ride accidents. Firm Principal Barry Novack persuaded the California Supreme Court to hold that amusement ride operators are common carriers that owe the highest degree of care to their guests. Mr. Novack has the requisite engineering and legal background to handle major cases against the large companies that run amusement parks, such as The Walt Disney Company. For example, he represented clients who suffered brain bleeds from riding the Indiana Jones Ride at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. In addition to his law degree, Mr. Novack holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southern California, as well as a Masters in Engineering from Princeton University.
The Chief of Staff of Massachusetts Congressman Edward Markey, a key proponent of Federal oversight of theme parks, has recognized Mr. Novack as "the most prominent attorney regarding these cases."
