Who Is Liable for Water Park Injuries?

Who Is Liable for Water Park Injuries?

Water parks and amusement parks have millions of visitors each year. While enjoying innocent fun with friends and family, visitors are often surprised to find that water parks are not always safe, even for adults—and it’s not just because of the slippery walkways.

Adults and children are often injured while using water slides, rollercoasters, slippery walkways, and even doing simple things like jumping into a pool. Common water park injuries include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Slips and falls
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic head and brain injuries
  • Cuts and infections
  • Neck, back, and spine injuries
  • Drowning and nearly drowning

When you sustain an injury at a water park, you are likely to incur significant expenses for things like pain medication, X-rays, riding in an ambulance, and hospital stays. If you have a more serious injury, such as a spinal injury or a severe concussion, you could experience pain and an inhibited ability to perform everyday tasks for years to come. Fractures, sprains, and other such physical trauma can also keep you out of work for days, weeks, or even months. In fact, if your injury is serious enough, you may end up permanently disabled and unable to work.

If you have been injured while at a water park, you may be entitled to compensation for damages. Whether or not you are able to sue the water park or property owner depends on the circumstances of your injuries. However, water park staff members (including property owners and managers) are required to create and maintain a safe environment, and if your injury occurred as a result of unkempt, unsafe conditions on the premises, they could be held liable for your injuries. When pursuing a legal case, you will need an experienced legal team on your side in order to take on the entertainment company or water park in question and get the compensation you need to cover your injury expenses. Whatever the circumstances of your water park injury, call our team of Albuquerque premises liability lawyers at Michael J. Doyle, Attorney At Law, right away.
