Amusement parks, traveling carnivals, and water parks offer an exciting escape from everyday life but they also offer mechanical hazards that can, and do, hurt visitors. According to estimates by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more than 10,000 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms for amusement ride-related injuries in 1999, an increase of 35% since 1993.
Amusement rides, slides, and activities range widely in terms of size, speed, height, g-forces, intensity, and intended audience. Riders range widely in terms of age, height, weight, mental ability, developmental maturity, and their ability to understand the forces. These factors contribute to the excitement of thrill rides. They also combine to create very real dangers for certain groups of people- most notably small children.
Additionally, some rides may have mechanical defects or inadequate safety features. Some rides may not provide necessary warnings of safety risks. Ride operators sometimes are negligent in operating the ride.
If you have been injured for any of these reasons, you may have a valid personal injury claim.
