Amusement Park Accident Attorney
Amusement parks, theme parks, and water parks can be found through both California and Texas and are a popular way to beat the summer heat for children and adults alike. Whether you are in town for a visit or simply looking for a fun way to spend an afternoon, amusement parks are a wonderful option. One of the main attractions that draws people to amusement parks is the exhilarating rides. When properly maintained and looked after, amusement park rides are safe and a great way to get the blood flowing and your heart pumping. However, almost every year someone is tragically injured or killed while riding an amusement park ride. If safety protocols are not followed, if a ride malfunctions, or if any of the safety equipment fails, park-goers could sustain devastating injuries or even death. If you have been the victim of an amusement park accident, the personal injury attorneys at Rad Law Firm can help.

Causes of Amusement Park Ride Accidents
While all amusement parks, theme parks, and water parks are structured differently, generally amusement park accidents are caused by similar types of negligent or reckless acts of those operating the rides. They may also take place because of malfunctioning equipment or defective products, such as safety harnesses. Here is a look at some of the other common causes of amusement park ride accidents:
- Operator error
- Inappropriate supervision
- Defective design
- Mechanical failure
- Malfunctioning lap bars and safety restraints
- Poor maintenance
- Consumer behavior
These types of accidents are extremely serious and oftentimes lead to life-changing injuries or death. Liability for amusement park accidents can involve three different areas of personal injury – general tort law, products liability, and premises liability. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an amusement park ride accident, please contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm today.

We all enjoy going to the amusement park with our family to enjoy a day of fun. Sometimes, however, that fun can turn deadly. Whiplash, neck and back injuries, heart attacks, broken bones, internal injuries, and even death can result from a visit to the amusement park, water park, animal park, traveling carnival, street fair, or maybe even a birthday party featuring a bounce house for the kids.
The companies that own amusement parks and other attractions have a duty to be sure that everything is properly maintained and safe. The legal responsibility for an accident could reside with the owners, the operators, the ride designers, or even the concession stand owners. On your own, it would be extremely difficult to determine who was at fault for your injury and what insurance might be available to compensate you. At Rad Law Firm, we are experts in representing individuals against insurance companies. If your “day of fun” turned out otherwise, please call us and we can help you.
