Amusement parks are a lot of fun, which is why so many people flock to them every year. The rides get gutsier as people are looking for bigger and better thrills. While great ingenuity goes into these rides, there are times that accidents occur. Perhaps there was a design flaw or the ride was not maintained properly. Both of these can lead to catastrophic events that result in either serious injury or death.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an amusement park accident due to negligence, you may have an injury or wrongful death claim against them in which you can secure compensation.
Holding Amusement Parks Accountable
At Farrish Johnson Law Office, CHTD, we will investigate what happened and will determine who was at fault. Some of the common factors are cause for amusement park injuries that lead to liability lawsuits and insurance claims:
- Mechanical defects and failure
- Design defects
- Improper operator training, leading to operator error.
- Lack of maintenance or improper maintenance processes
- Inadequate inspection, leading to inadequate maintenance
- Abrupt starts and stops that lead to broken bones, whiplash, head injuries, or bruises
- Failure to have the proper warnings posted
- Rusted belts, insecure tracks, improper belting, sharp objects, and loose cables
All of these can be cause for serious amusement park accidents that result in injury or even death. We will find the exact cause and fight for the compensation that the responsible party should pay to you for the damages you have sustained.
Seeking Justice For You
Unfortunately, children are among the most common victims of amusement park accidents, which means the parents can pursue the responsible parties for the compensation needed to treat injuries or to compensate for other expenses. In the case of a settlement, the insurance company may make an offer. If it is not enough, then we will pursue more. You will be given options and all of the information you need to make informed decisions when it comes to these settlements and whether or not it is best to move forward with a jury trial.
