Amusement Park Accidents
Going to amusement parks is supposed to be a fun time for you and your family. You go to the park, you buy a ticket, and you get on the rides expecting that they are safe. But what happens when a day of fun and adventure turns into a nightmare after you or a loved one has been injured at the park?
Amusement parks by their nature can be dangerous facilities that require responsible and diligent oversight in order to reduce the risk of injury. At the law firm of Corsiglia, McMahon, & Allard, L.L.P., our personal injury trial attorneys have the dedication to detail and the legal experience to hold an amusement park accountable for accidents that occur because of their negligence.What Liability Does the Amusement Park Have?
When you or a loved one is injured at an amusement park, there are a number of different legal theories that you can assert. Two of the most common are negligence and product liability theories. The park may even bare liability if the park's employees either act in a negligent manner or fail to act where they should have. Examples of this kind of negligence include, but are not limited to:
- A failure to post a warning
- A failure of the park to adequately train their ride operators
- A failure by park staff to maintain the amusement park equipment in a safe condition
- A failure to maintain a schedule of inspection for the parks rides
Even though the owners of the amusement park where you or a loved one was injured may be held liable for causing the injury, depending on the particular facts of your case, it is possible that there are other parties that can be held legally liable as well. For example, if there was faulty equipment that was not adequately inspected, not only can the owner of the amusement park be held liable, but the manufacturer of the faulty equipment can be held liable as well. Our experienced lawyers will look at and examine every angle of your case to determine who may be liable for your injuries and to what extent.Does My Injury Have to Happen at an Amusement Park?
