Types of Amusement Park Injuries
Thousands of amusement park injuries are incurred by Americans every year. These can range from bruises to traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or wrongful death. In May of 2019, three family members were injured on a log ride in Riverside’s Castle Park. As an example, a mother was left in critical condition when she and her two children were thrown from their log-shaped vehicle when it reached the end of the ride. A malfunctioning water pump that was used to slow the ride down, was later found to be the source of the accident.
Common injuries resulting from amusement park accidents include the following:
Traumatic brain injuries (from G-forces and high speeds)
There are several possible bases for liability in your amusement park accident case:
Negligence: an amusement park is responsible for injuries to park visitors if it failed to keep its rides or premises safe. This can include rides that were not maintained or inspected. Negligence can include a park employee that fails to provide proper warning about a ride or operates a ride in such a way as to cause harm.
Product liability: Product liability claims may be made if the ride itself is found to be inherently dangerous even with proper maintenance and inspection
Premises liability: property owners must demonstrate that they exercised reasonable care in the maintenance and management of the facilities. If they have not done so, they may be held liable for injuries that took place on their premises, resulting in a San Bernardino premises liability case.
