Yes, you can in fact sue for an injury sustained at an amusement park, but there are a few criteria your injury needs to meet before you can consider a legal case. There are several thrills that an amusement park offers: great sweets, carnival like games, and the adrenaline pumping roller coasters. When attending amusement parks on summer vacations, while having so much fun with your family and friends, the last thing you would like to happen is having an accident. Amusement parks are already expensive vacation thrills; the least you would expect is your safety to be as close to guaranteed as possible. Because of the thrill of the rides, the injuries that may be obtained are likely to be extremely calamitous. Additionally, many of the dangerous rides are operated by young teenagers who might not follow all safety protocols when securing your family into the rides. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury at a theme park, you may be able to file a personal injury claim according to a personal injury lawyer from The Law Offices of Andrew Lynch.

Due to the extreme risks rollercoasters cause, theme parks are responsible for routine check-ups to make sure the rides are safe and well taken care of. If for some reason this duty is not met, this is considered negligence. When a theme park is found negligent, and an injury occurs due to this, the theme park will be held responsible for any medical fees as well as other damages.

The types of injuries that occur at theme parks are include:

  • Whiplash on rides like bumper cars, causing neck and head injuries.
  • Brain injuries caused by rapid speeds.
  • Lacerations from old rides and equipment.
  • Drowning on water rides

All parts of the park, no matter how seemingly small, must provide safety to its visitors. The condition of the grounds, and the conditions of the rides must all be taken into consideration. Park owners have a legal commitment to fulfill. Injuries at parks can be life altering, and for this reason park owners have a huge responsibility. So many people or companies may be found responsible for your injury, like the amusement park rides manufacturer, and the owner of the concession stand that you ordered your food from. Even those that were operating the rides can be found liable for your injuries. And because there are so many factors that may be involved, you cannot handle this alone. Your biggest focus should be getting better, and for this reason it is best to hire an attorney. Amusement park cases are extremely complex, so it is best to have a lawyer by your side to take care of your case.

If you or someone you know has been injured due to an accident at an amusement park, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Certain injuries that can be attained may also incur high medical bills. A skilled attorney will work towards getting you the care you need, as well as ensuring you are compensated for your injuries and losses.
