We all think of amusement parks as a fun place to spend a day. There are so many rides, tasty food and games to play; everyone from young to old is happy.
However, did you know that an amusement park accident can result in a serious injury to an individual visiting for the day or an employee who works there every day? There are several causes of accidents at an amusement park:
· The park owner, ride operator or maintenance person can be negligent
· The guest who refuses to follow ride safety instructions can be negligent
· Slip and fall accidents just happen - usually no one's fault
An amusement park accident must be reported to a regulatory agency. The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission tracks accidents - not only at amusement parks, but also at carnivals. One year the agency reported more than 15,000 ride accidents. Many accidents happen on roller coasters. Accidents happen almost daily. Sometimes it is the fault of the park personnel or the fault of the guest, and sometimes accidents just happen.
If you were the victim of an accident at an amusement park, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate the incident and determine if you are eligible for compensation for your medical expenses and/or damages.
