Do you plan on visiting Atlantic Beach Park, Water Wiz, or even the gargantuan Six Flags New England this summer?  Amusement parks and carnivals like the ones in our Rhode Island and Massachusetts communities offer people of all ages entertainment and laughter in the summer months.  However, amusement park accidents – from slip and fall accidents to major ride malfunctions – happen.  Our local law firm has decades of combined experience standing up for the injured.  Our lawyers can provide you with a free case review regarding any carnival personal injury.  In today’s blog, I provide a general overview of park injuries, but remember, you situation is unique so contact us 24/7 so we can help.

How Common Are Amusement Park Injuries? More Common Than You Think.

Personal injuries are common at amusement parks.  Many are avoidable and all can give rise to a legal claim.

Thousands of people each year in the U.S. require medical treatment due to an amusement park-related injury.  For example, in 2013, Nationwide Children’s Hospital found that an average of 4,423 children under 18 are treated in emergency rooms for amusement park-related injuries each year.  While your chances of being seriously injured or killed at an amusement park remain low, all personal injuries suffered at a for-profit park are concerning.

What are common personal injuries suffered at parks?  At amusement parks such as carnivals, common injuries people sustain include head, neck, and back injuries, including concussions and whiplash, strained, fractured, and broken bones, and even drowning.  Common causes of these injuries range from poor ride maintenance and mechanical errors to poor ride operation and supervision practices.  If you or a loved one become injured to any degree at an amusement park, call us immediately to discuss your case.

Who Can Be Held At Fault For A Carnival Or Amusement Park Personal Injury?  

Injuries on another’s property or business may involve various legal entities.  Figuring out how to even start a legal claim, let alone deal with big companies and their lawyers is virtually impossible on your own.

These cases are complex and multiple parties may be at fault.  Many amusement park accidents become nuanced quickly.  For instance, determining who is at fault and to what extent requires experience.  The amusement, water, or theme park may be at fault, but so may the manufacturer of the ride, or even the state, if the ride was not property inspected.  At Bottaro Injury Lawyers, we have years of experience involving accident research, asking the right questions, and ultimately getting to the bottom of who is at fault for you or your loved one’s injuries.

What Should Amusement Parks And Carnivals Do For Safety?

When you retain our amusement park accident lawyers, you will get a team local to Rhode Island and Massachusetts that is dedicated to not only investigating your case, but also to holding these carnivals responsible so it does not occur again.

Here are some safety procedures that carnivals should follow:

  • adequate hiring, training, and retention guidelines
  • daily safety checks
  • drug and alcohol testing
  • operational machines, including safety restraints are secured and tightened appropriately
  • following their own guidelines, such as proper age, height, and weight requirements
  • following all county, state, and federal guidelines

As a consumer, trust your instincts.  If the pop-up carnival ride does not seem safe to you, skip it.   Overall, remaining aware of your surroundings — even in fun places like amusement, water, and theme parks — will help keep you and your loved ones safe.  If you are injured at an amusement park, call us immediately to get started on your claim!
