New York Amusement Park Accident Attorneys

 Amusement Park AccidentAmusement parks are big businesses and the popularity and increased competition among amusement parks drives owners to create rides that are higher, faster, and scarier than the one down the street. While amusement parks are generally safe and have safety and security measures in place, accidents do happen. The desire for hosting the most extreme rides leads to a greater number of more severe accidents. Unfortunately, when amusement park accidents do happen, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic or even fatal.

The New York amusement park accident attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. are experts at determining the cause of the accident and which parties should be held legally responsible for the resulting injuries. We have the knowledge, resource, and compassion to help make sure that your legal rights are properly protected and help you obtain the fair compensation that you deserve.

Common Causes of Amusement Park Accidents

Although accidents at amusement and water parks in New York and New Jersey are relatively rare, when they do happen, the consequences can be tragic for most victims. Below are some common causes of amusement park accidents:

  • Mechanical failure
  • Structural damage
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Missing safety equipment
  • Lap bars or safety restraints that malfunction
  • Improper assembly or maintenance of rides

Liability For Your Amusement Park Injury

Similar to any other establishment, amusement parks are subject to premises liability. This means that the operators of the park are liable when the use of the premises or the dangerous conditions of the park results in an injury. There are generally four possible bases of liability in holding an amusement park accountable for your injuries:

  1. Negligence (lack of reasonable care). Under a negligence theory, an amusement park is responsible for your injuries if the park failed to keep its rides or premises safe for visitors who come onto its grounds.
  2. Product liability. Product liability may be found if a ride was so inherently dangerous that proper maintenance, inspection and use could not have prevented the accident that caused your injuries. In such a case, you may sue both the manufacturer and the park. However, in order to prevail you must prove that the manufacturer could have used an alternative design that would have prevented your injury.
  3. Premises liability. Amusement park property owners must exercise reasonable care in maintaining their grounds and facilities. Failure to do so will make the owner liable for any resulting injuries to park visitors.
  4. Wrongful death. A wrongful death claim can be brought if a loved one dies due to the careless, reckless or negligent acts of the amusement park.

Our New York amusement park accident attorneys will invest the time and resources to thoroughly investigate the facts of your amusement park accident to make sure all responsible parties are held legally accountable.
