Amusement Park/Carnival Injuries

As amusement parks and carnivals have attempted to deliver bigger thrills and higher profits, they have also put park attendees and riders at greater risk of serious personal injury.  With a track record of success in complex personal injury and premises liability lawsuits, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you or your loved one achieve the full measure of compensation you deserve following an amusement park or carnival injury.

Dangerously designed or maintained amusement park rides pose significant risks to riders, particularly small children.  Amusement park injuries can occur on almost any ride, with some common causes of injury including:

  • Exposed Wires
  • Malfunctioning Controls or Circuitry
  • Malfunctioning Safety Equipment
  • Lack of Adequate Warnings
  • Untested/Rushed Engineering
  • Poor Maintenance
  • Operator Error

As high-profile examples have recently shown, amusement park and carnival ride injuries can be deadly.  While park owners and operators frequently employ insurance adjusters to entice injured parties with a quick settlement, injured riders and bystanders need legal counsel to protect their right to receive fair compensation.

Other Premises Liability Claims

A significant portion of amusement park and carnival injuries occur while parkgoers are not riding waterslides or amusement rides.  Waterparks and stationary amusement parks like Cedar Point and Disney World consist of enormous tracts of land, all of which park owners and operators are obligated to maintain.  Even travelling amusement parks and carnivals typically control several acres and may have a duty to ensure that the park is free from hidden, dangerous defects.

Slip and fall injuries, hidden defects, falling merchandise and equipment, and exposed wiring all occur frequently on amusement park premises.  Park patrons injured by a property defect on amusement park grounds may suffer significant injuries and need a lawyer to protect their legal rights.

If you or a loved one suffered injury or loss of life at an amusement park, carnival, or waterpark, you may be entitled to compensation.  For a free consultation regarding your claims and next steps, call or email us today.
