What Factors Contribute to Amusement Park Accidents?
Theme parks are complex operations with lots of moving parts. They require an extensive staff comprised of not only service workers and entertainers but also maintenance, custodians, emergency medical technicians, and other employees in a wide variety of professions.
Unfortunately, not all amusement park operators hire the necessary help. Some cut corners for the sake of profits, employing temporary workers with minimal training. As a result, hazards here and there get overlooked; an employee encounters an emergency situation s/he is ill-equipped to handle; and eventually, someone gets seriously hurt, or worse, killed, usually due to the following causes:
- Slip and fall conditions left unaddressed
- Negligent security
- Failure to follow guidelines for height, weight, and age restrictions on rides
- Poorly maintained or assembled rides
- Operator error or inattentive behavior
While inadequate staffing certainly is a problem, amusement park accidents are more commonly associated with mechanical ride failures. From conventional Ferris wheels to spectacular roller coasters, amusement park rides are feats of engineering which require constant checkups and upkeep. Negligent monitoring and maintenance can lead to deadly, if not extremely disastrous, incidents.
Ride Accidents Can Be Caused By:
- Design defects
- Loose or worn out parts
- Faulty safety harnesses
- Safety lock failure
- Sharp or protruding parts
- Improper height or weight calculations
- Inadequate padding
- Abrupt starts and stops
- Exposed electrical wires
How Can I Win My Los Angeles Amusement Park Accident Claim?
Amusement park injury claims often involve many complex theories of law requiring legal expertise, such as product liability, negligence, and premises liability law. Also, many amusement park owners may not settle a claim unless a lawsuit is filed, or they will try to settle as cheaply as possible. To increase the likelihood that you get the compensation you deserve, get help from an attorney who has experience handling these types of cases.
