Amusement Park Injury Attorneys
Amusement park injuries caused by rides (such as roller coasters, water slides, bumper cars, spinning rides, and the like) cause thousands of injuries each year — everything ranging from cuts and bruises to broken bones and severe head trauma. The most serious theme park ride mishaps can even result in death.
HOW COMMON ARE AMUSEMENT PARK ACCIDENTS?
According to the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more than 8,000 people are injured on amusement park rides annually. These statistics reflect only those injuries serious enough to require emergency room treatment, which means the total number of injuries is even higher.
Children make up 50% of amusement park ride injury victims – kids between 10 and 14 years old sustain the most injuries among all age groups. Children are also the most likely victims (75%) to be injured by falling out of a ride or being forcefully ejected.
COMMON TYPES OF AMUSEMENT PARK INJURIES
The most common injuries from amusement park accidents include:
- Head, neck, and back injuries
- Death as a result of falling, being thrown from a ride or a severe ride malfunction
- Stroke from trauma to ligaments in the neck
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain aneurysms from roller coasters or other fast rides
- Lacerations, broken bones, or torn ligaments
CAUSES OF AMUSEMENT PARK INJURY
According to the CPSC, there are several leading contributors to amusement park injuries and fatalities. Most injuries occur due to:
- Mechanical failure of the ride
- Improper operation of the ride
- Passenger misuse or failure to follow instructions
- Nature of the ride
