Factors that contribute to amusement park accidents

There are many factors which can cause or contribute to amusement park accidents and injuries. These include:

Operator Behavior

This is a large factor that often contributes to accidents or injuries that occur. For example, if the operator of a ride stops or starts a ride abruptly, that can lead to injuries or accidents. Another frequent operator behavior that contributes to accidents and injuries in amusement parks is the failure to properly maintain rides. Finally, sometimes rides that are not fixed position rides are not assembled properly and this is very often a cause of serious accidents and injuries in amusement parks.

Mechanical Failure

Amusement park rides very often have mechanical failures such as structural problems including weak joint or welds, missing safety pins and lap bars or safety belts that are not in good working order. Depending on how diligent the operator of the amusement park or rides is at ensuring that equipment is inspected regularly, this particular category presents a huge risk for consumers. Often the persons operating and maintaining rides do not have sufficient training or expertise to truly ensure that rides are properly and safely maintained.

Who is legally responsible for amusement park injuries?

If you are injured in an amusement park accident, the first step in figuring out how to have your injuries compensated is determining whether there was negligent behavior by the owner or operator of the amusement park which contributed to the cause of the injuries. Negligence is essentially the failure to exercise reasonable care. If proof of negligence can be shown, then an injury may be compensable assuming that there is a connection between the negligence and the injuries that occurred.
