ACCIDENTS AT THEME PARKS
A day at the amusement park can provide hours of fun and memories that last for years, but unfortunately, these venues are not without dangers. On some occasions, a visit to the amusement park could also result in a visitor suffering serious injuries or even death. In fact, injuries at amusement parks are on the rise. The increase in injuries is a result of owners and operators failing to emphasize park safety.
visitors to amusement parks must rely on the owners and operators to make sure the rides are safe. Unfortunately, some park owners do not respect the trust placed on their shoulders.

Lack of Proper Regulations Hurts Victims of Amusement Park Negligence
With the lack of regulatory enforcement affecting amusement parks and the lack of available statistics regarding theme park injuries, many park operators feel that they do not need to take responsibility for injuries sustained by their customers. As a result, they do whatever it takes to delay or deny payment for injury claims or to settle them quickly for a fraction of the true costs incurred by the victims.
