4 types of accidents that can happen in an amusement park

Did you know that nearly 31,000 amusement-park related injuries were treated in U.S. emergency rooms last year? This number is likely higher than most people expect, so it is important to be aware of the potential dangers that could cause serious injury to you or your child if you have plans to visit these attractions.

Below, we examine four causes of amusement park injuries and discuss what you can do if you or a loved one is involved in an accident.

  1. Ride-related injuries: Rides are some of the main attractions at amusement parks, but they can be the most dangerous. Recently, for instance, one person died and seven more were injured when seats on a state fair ride detached. In the past seven years, at least 22 people have been killed in ride-related accidents.
  2. Food poisoning: Improperly handled, stored or prepared food can cause serious illness for anyone who consumes it. 
  3. Falling accidents: Falls inside an amusement park can stem from entering or exiting rides, slippery floors, obstacles in stairwells and other hazardous conditions.
  4. Animal bites: Whether animals are part of a park's attraction or brought into the park by patrons, they can bite people and cause serious injury.

In the event of any of these injury-causing incidents, you can take legal action to secure compensation, though you will need to confirm liability first.

Liability will depend on the details of your specific incident. For instance, ride operators, inspectors or manufacturers may be liable for ride-related injuries; vendors could be liable for unsafe food or drinks; park owners may be liable for dangerous conditions; individuals could be liable for animal bites.

If you or your child was injured in an amusement park accident in Georgia, then you can be struggling with considerable stress, pain and financial obligations. To address these and the other damages related to the accident, you can contact an attorney to identify the liable party and file a personal injury claim seeking compensation.
