If the injury has become apparent after walking away from the ride - or the client has been asked to keep it quiet - then it wouldn't appear anywhere until the suit goes in.
rtotheizzo17 said:All of Florida's major parks—which include the Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando, and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay—report quarterly details surrounding accidents and other incidents at their parks. A requirement for these reported incidents is that they are fatal incidents, or that the injured person required an overnight hospital visit. Four examples of the types of incidents that have been reported to Florida's Bureau of Fair Rides Inspection are listed here: (from wiki)

I have to imagine an anti-business state like California would have something similar.
Additionally, sites like http://www.rideaccidents.com/ will list major accidents.
And this site http://amusementsafety.org/ has some pretty detailed info by park. I'd imagine they aren't making it up out of their asses so...
By the way this info is not Pro Bono. My current rate is 10% of any monetary value earned.

bdfesq said:Oh no. I just got in trouble from the attorney from Six Flags. He recently sent an email telling me "to stay off the roller coaster forums. It is not appropriate for you guys to be trolling on chatgroups. If it continues, I will be forced to respond in kind."
Kind of funny. Given there is nothing wrong with asking people if they were ever injured on roller coaster, I don't think I will take his advice. In fact, given their uproar I might be on to something and might now seek to search some other forums, you never know what you can find nowadays.

The people here love to help you out as it's their hobby, but there must be a more appropriate channel for you to search for officially filed grievances.
