Have you been to Six Flags over Texas in Arlington, the State Fair of Texas in Dallas or any local town amusement or water park? If so, then you know how scary the rides can be. Texas has many amusement businesses where people go to have fun while on vacation such as Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Speedzone, Great Wolf Lodge and many temporary traveling carnival parks. Since the amusement park rides have become higher and faster, if an accident occurs while on a theme park ride, someone could suffer serious injuries or death. People have been harmed and killed when a ride derailed, safety gear or brakes failed, or the theme parks owners failed to inspect the rides to make sure they were constructed and operating safely.
Children seem to be the ones that enjoy going to carnivals the most, so unfortunately they seem to be the ones injured the most often and seriously. If your child has been involved in an accident at an amusement or water park, then you need to contact one of our personal injury attorneys to answer your questions regarding the legal damages you may be entitled to as a parent and for your child.
Some of the following ways have been where adults or children have been injured while at an amusement park:
The amusement park incorrectly assembles, repairs or maintains the ride and/or safety restraints;
Operator abruptly hits the brakes or fails to shut down ride; and
Failure of safety pins, structure, metal, electrical wires sheared on a ride;
