Can I claim compensation if I'm injured at a theme park?
Posted on 2nd August 2019
When you go on holiday, you expect a week away in the sun, returning feeling relaxed and care-free.
Sadly, for one British man, this was the farthest thing from what he got.
David Briffaut, and his girlfriend, Penny Bristow, were on holiday in Benidorm, when they decided to visit Aqualandia Water Park. David, only 23, decided to race on the waterslide, known as Splash. However, the fun-themed waterpark was not fun at all.
David’s head allegedly snapped forward as he came to the end of the slide, and he lost consciousness, briefly. When he came to, it’s said that David couldn’t feel his legs.
After being rushed to Hospital, he was sedated and put into an intensive care unit, being placed on life support.
David’s family have been told that he may never walk again, potentially being paralysed from the waist down, after it has been confirmed that he broke two of the vertebrae in his neck.
Whilst this is obviously not the case for every ride, some rides can be dangerous, and your local personal injury solicitors urge all holiday-goers to take extra care to follow all the safety rules and procedures that are in place.
