Injury reports from Florida's theme parks yield little information

A two-part series by Scott Powers of The Orlando Sentinel explored personal injury litigation against the big Florida theme parks, showing what happens when visitors get hurt and then sue. The findings show ride-related lawsuits at Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Orlando and Busch Gardens rarely shed light on whether the rides actually hurt anyone. And the streets, shops and walkways of Florida's theme parks generate far more injury lawsuits than the rides. The report also includes a searchable on-line database providing summaries of 477 personal injury lawsuits filed in the years 2004 through 2008.
