Moments of laughter, adrenaline rush, cheer, tasty food, cotton candy, and beautiful people all over, are things people expect to see when they visit an amusement park.

It never crosses their minds that amidst all the fun and excitement, danger lurks somewhere in a corner, waiting to strike. Then within seconds, the roller coaster stops, or a high riding machine develops a glitch. Before you know it, you have a broken arm after the machine smashed you against a barrier.

Amusement Park Accident Statistics

In 2017, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions revealed a report that shocked many. According to the report, there were, at the time, more than 2,206 known cases of amusement park accidents.

Note that the report covered just 383 amusement parks in the United States, out of a possible 754 amusement parks. This means every year, thousands of amusement park accidents go unreported.

Way before the report mentioned above, the Consumer Product Safety Commission had done another report on amusement parks in 2006. The report revealed that one-half of individuals who get injured in amusement park rides are children.

The report defined children as individuals before the age of 14. Out of all victims that were ejected from an amusement park ride or fell three quarters were children.

What Causes Amusement Park Accidents?

It is difficult to pinpoint one reason why amusement park accidents happen. Different factors can quickly turn a good day at the park into something straight out of a horror movie. The most common causes include:

  • Mechanical Failure
  • Poorly Trained Staff
  • Improper Safety Signage

Call us immediately you’re involved in an amusement park accident as a result of any of the causes mentioned above.

All amusement parks are required by state and federal laws to be fitted with safety precautions like harnesses and lap bars. This ensures that the rider will be safe in case of an accident.

Unfortunately, many of the said safety precautions are not full proof. They sometimes fail to operate as they should mostly because of poor servicing or maintenance.

Poorly trained amusement park staff can also put your life at risk. You could also be at risk of an accident if you work at an amusement park that hires poorly trained staff. The most common amusement park injuries include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Back injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Drowning
  • Heart attacks
  • Whiplash
  • Head injuries including concussions
  • Trauma
  • Death

Don’t take the road to recovery singlehandedly if you or a loved one has suffered any of these injuries. Contact Felice Trial Attorneys to help you with filing and claiming for compensation for damages and medical expenses.

Who Should Be Held Responsible?

The amusement park management or the ride manufacturer may be held responsible for your injuries.

Remember that amusement park owners can be held responsible for the actions of their staff. Employees can also be considered negligent for any of the following reasons.

  • Failure to maintain rides
  • Inability to set up visible and clear warning signs
  • Failure to perform safety tests
  • Giving false or unclear instructions to guests and riders
  • Operating rides poorly

Ride manufacturers can be held liable for injuries that can be directly attributed to a product flaw. A product flaw can occur as a result of poor design, improper safety inspection before the product was sold or even faulty parts.

Amusement Park Accident Attorneys at Your Service

Under both circumstances, it is up to you to prove that you were injured. The injuries should be a result of a negligent employee or structural/design defect of a machine.

Note that the amusement park owes you a duty of care once you are within their premises. Getting injured within their premises is a breach of that duty, which amounts to negligence. Your recourse in law damages, which means you must receive compensation for your injuries. That is exactly where Felice Trial Attorneys comes into the picture.

Our team will not just make sure you can prove your claim in court. We will make sure you get compensated justly and on time. Call us today at 561-444-8822 for more information.
