Personal Injury Law and Amusement Park Rides

Like every property owner, amusement parks have a legal responsibility to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. If an individual experiences an amusement park injury that could have been avoided, the injured individual may be entitled to compensation.

Who is responsible for an amusement park injury?

Depending on the type of injury, legal responsibility can fall on various parties, including the amusement park’s owner, the designer or manufacturer of an amusement park ride, or a concession stand owner. Sometimes, more than one company may be wholly or partially responsible for compensating the victim.

Common types of amusement park injury

The following are some ways amusement park guests can suffer injuries:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents;
  • Dangerous or broken amusement park rides;
  • Unsafe or poorly maintained water rides; or
  • Untrained or unsupervised ride operators.
