Recent Accidents That Have Occurred At Disney Hotel and Resorts
The resorts at Disney are some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. They offer a variety of attractions and activities for visitors of all ages. Some of the most popular attractions at Disney resorts include rides like Splash Mountain and Space Mountain, as well as character meet-and-greets with Mickey Mouse and other iconic Disney characters. There are also plenty of restaurants, shopping areas, and other activities to keep guests entertained.
3-Year-Old Allegedly Sexually Assaulted at Cruise Daycare
Attorney Michael Winkleman is representing a Vermont family in a $20 million lawsuit that alleges their then 3-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted while attending daycare aboard a Disney cruise. When parents leave their children in the care of trained adults in such a setting, the last thing on their mind is this type of traumatic attack on their child, but in this instance, the family returned to collect their daughter and later realized that something was very wrong.
The young girl was allegedly assaulted by an older, minor attendee of the daycare. As the lawsuit alleges, the daycare did not have adequate training nor staffing to avoid putting the young child in such a compromised situation.
Disney Guest in Orlando Dies From Heart Attack In Hotel: Short Staff Slow To Respond
In December 2021, a guest at a Disney hotel near the Magic Kingdom theme park suffered from a heart attack, but first responders were busy on other calls and were unable to administer epinephrine for 20 minutes after the first call was placed. According to Jon Shirey, president of the Reedy Creek Firefighters Association, the woman would have had a much better chance of survival if more responders had been available to field the call, but due to the fact that Reedy Creek has not increased its firefighter staffing since 1989, responders are simply not able to respond promptly to all calls.
Situations like this are strong candidates for personal injury cases where a victim was unable to receive lifesaving treatment due to an unreasonable decision on behalf of the park’s management to limit staffing. Working with a team like the attorneys at Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. is one of the best ways to make sure that you are building an aggressive case and fighting for the money you deserve.
Hotel Fall in Disneyland in France Leaves Irish Boy Paralyzed
In March of 2022, an 11-year-old boy from Cork, Ireland suffered a fall while visiting Disneyland Paris, which left him paralyzed from the neck down. After an exciting day of sightseeing, including a visit to the Eiffel Tower and the Parc des Princes football stadium, Kevin O’Callaghan, from Mallow in Co Cork, had a fall in the soft play area of his hotel room and lost all sensation in his body.
He was rushed to a local hospital, where an MRI revealed a compression in his neck and spine. He underwent emergency surgery and was able to travel back to Ireland days after the accident.
According to a statement by the family:
“It gives Kevin a boost knowing that so many people think so fondly of him. Since coming to Temple Street, Kevin’s injuries have been assessed, and at this moment in time, the outlook for Kevin to walk again is bleak. Kevin has a little bit more movement, and at the moment, the only hope for Kevin to walk again is his own sheer determination as well as intensive rehab that’ll come in time.”
Accidents like this are every parent’s nightmare, and trying to seek financial compensation from a massive corporation like Disney will only complicate the healing process. Contact our law firm to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who is ready to help you through your case.
Filing A Premises Liability or Assault Claim Against Disney
When you or a loved one is injured while visiting a Disney property, it can be a traumatizing and confusing experience. You may be wondering what your legal options are and whether you can file a claim against Disney.
