Amusement park and carnival ride accidents can cause serious injuries. Although amusement parks and carnivals provide great thrills and entertainment for families, the rides often lack proper safety equipment, are not assembled or constructed properly, and can be operated by indviduals not paying attention to important safety issues.
Every year, dozens of injuries and deaths are reported across the United States resulting from these accidents. Injuries occur on roller coasters, ferris wheels, water rides, and on other rides, including Gravity, Spider, and other fast dropping and spinning rides.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission regulates traveling carnival rides, but is understaffed and does not sufficiently monitor the rides for safety. Quite often, by the time a carnival accident scene is investigated, the ride is either dismantled or in the process of being disassembled, making it impossible to determine the cause of the accident.
Children are often the victims of these amusement park ride accidents and suffer the most serious injuries, including brain injuries, broken bones, and even death. Cases involving death give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
Individuals injured in an amusement park accident and family members of injured children should contact an attorney immediately to start an investigation of the case.
