Man dies after spending time at theme park

Those who go to Illinois theme parks expect that reasonable safety measures will be put in place for their protection. However, this may or may not mean that warning signs are posted in languages other than English. According to a lawsuit against Universal Resort Orlando, a lack of bilingual warning signs constitutes negligence on its part. The suit claims that the resort should have known that many who go there don't speak English.

According to the lawsuit, a 38-year-old man suffered a heart attack while on a ride called Skull Island: Reign of Kong. Signs posted in English did say that anyone who had a heart condition should avoid the ride, and pictures accompanied the text to further describe potential hazards. The lawsuit also claims that the resort was negligent in delaying aid to the man prior to his passing.

After going on the ride, the victim thought that he had an upset stomach and went to rest on a bench before collapsing. He was taken to a hospital where he passed away. According to one theme park consultant, posting as many warning signs as possible may be a good idea in a society where lawsuits are common. Data indicates that in 2017, there were 6.1 million visitors to metro Orlando who came from outside of the United States.

If a person experiences an injury at a theme park, they may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit. The result of the lawsuit could be a financial award that covers damages such as medical bills, lost wages and lost future earnings. In some cases, a suit will be settled out of court. An attorney may help a plaintiff to gather evidence of negligent security, such as the lack of warning signs available to guests.
