In many instances of amusement park negligence, theme park operators or their employees may fail to take the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of their guests. Theme parks may be liable for injury or death to a guest in many negligent situations; a few examples are below:
According to accident statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, theme park guests under the age of 20 suffer just over 50 percent of all theme park ride injuries. Of these guests, theme park injuries to children ages 10 to 14 had the highest overall injury rate.
Many injuries at amusement parks happen while riding roller coasters and other high-speed or high-intensity theme park rides. Roller coasters have also caused several fatal theme park accidents. However, any park ride is capable of causing serious or fatal injuries to guests.
Some other common injuries guests may suffer on theme park rides include:
