Amusement Park Liability for InjuriesEvery year, families go to amusement parks to spend time together and have a good time. However, occasionally, accidents do happen. Because of this, it is important to understand what amusement parks owe to the people who visit them. It is also important to know who can be liable for injuries that occur at amusement parks.

Amusement park owners have a duty to make sure that the property and attractions are maintained and kept in a safe condition. This means testing the rides on a regular basis. It also means checking the cars and mechanics of each ride and making repairs as they become necessary. If an amusement park visitor is injured and it is found that the injury could have been prevented had the amusement park maintained the park, the visitor could be able to sue to recover for his damages.

Depending on the type of injury and the circumstances, there are several different lawsuits that an injured amusement park visitor can file. In some cases, a visitor can file a wrongful death claim for the death of an immediate family member. An injured visitor may also be able to bring a lawsuit for negligence. Sometimes, an injured visitor can bring a lawsuit for injuries from a slip and fall. And, claims for a defective product can be brought in some circumstances.
