Amusement Park Accidents
In 2011, exactly 4.3% of riders injured on rides were reported to be “seriously injured”
Nevertheless, amusement rides remain risky. In 2011, exactly 4.3% of riders injured on rides were reported to be “seriously injured,” meaning that the injury required immediate hospitalization in excess of 24 hours for purposes other than observation. This statistic comes from the 2013 Fixed-Site Amusement Ride Injury Survey, conducted by the National Safety Council Research and Statistical Services Group.
As these machines become more complex, more can go wrong. Design errors, inadequate maintenance, poor training, and improperly securing passengers are a few of the areas of concern. Amusement and theme park owners have a responsibility to protect the public from harm. BolandRomaine has taken amusement companies to trial for clients injured by such devices.
