Philadelphia Premises Liability Lawyers
While it does not happen often, patrons do suffer serious injuries at amusement parks, water parks, entertainment-complexes and sports facilities. We all know amusement parks are fun. A trip to an amusement park is often a great family outing. With so many people visiting amusement parks, injuries are bound to happen from time to time. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) tells us there are certain hazards associated with amusement ride related accidents:
- Mechanical failures associated with amusement ride related accidents such as missing safety pins, broken structural components, exposed electrical wires, broken drive chains, malfunctioning lap bars or other safety restraints, failure to shut off, improper detachment of cars, and improper detachment of structural components.
- Neglectful operator behavior including, abruptly stopping the ride, improperly assembling and maintaining the ride, defeating safety equipment such as brakes and automatic emergency shut off switches.
- Failure of ride operators to supervise and prevent poor customer behavior associated with ride related accidents including, intentionally rocking cars, standing up, taking off safety restraints, sitting improperly (sideways or with feet above lap bar), holding a child above the safety restraint.
