Amusement Park Injury
Amusement parks are intended to be places of leisure and enjoyment for people of all ages. Rollercoasters, water slides, and a host of other high and fast spinning, twisting, and looping rides provide repeated thrills for both kids and adults. The largest and most popular amusement park in Massachusetts is Six Flags New England, but Massachusetts also boasts a host of water parks, carnivals, and other amusement attractions. These parks are an incredibly popular destinations for children, families, and school groups--particularly during the summer months.
Despite the energy and thrill of amusement parks, both riders and bystanders are at risk of suffering serious injuries. Injuries--and even death--can stem from several causes, including a defective or broken ride, a negligently constructed or maintained ride, malfunctioning safety equipment (seatbelt, shoulder restraint), a breach of security, a slip-and-fall, failure to properly train an employee in operating a ride, failure to warn about the risks of a ride, and the negligence of a ride operator. With the average speed of roller coasters having increased rapidly over the last several years, injuries sustained from such rides may be even more dangerous.
