However, if the owner of an amusement park was negligent in the maintenance and inspection of the rides and machinery, the patrons of the park are placed at risk of serious bodily injury or even death. If you have been hurt in a roller coaster accident in New York, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to compensate for your pain and suffering.

Was your injury caused by negligence?

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, it is estimated that over 10,000 injuries are reported in amusement park rides every year. This estimate includes several deaths each year, due to three major causes. The first is negligence of the patron, which includes not using the ride properly in violation of the park’s policies. The second is undiagnosed medical conditions, such as a heart condition, that cause medical problems during the ride. The third cause is park owner negligence, which can include everything from failure to inspect the machinery of the ride, failure to install appropriate safety measures, and failure to train employees on the safety precautions of the ride.

Improper repair and maintenance of roller coasters and other amusement park rides can cause serious injury to the amusement park patron. An amusement park injury could also have the potential to be fatal. Historically, amusement park riders have been at risk for broken legs, arms, ankles, and other broken bones from the hard surfaces of the rides and the force and inertia pressing their body parts against them. In serious accidents, the victim can suffer trauma to the head, neck, and back. Because of the force and inertia placed on the human body during roller coaster rides and other rides, the riders are susceptible to spine and neck injuries, such as slipped discs, pinched nerves, and back sprains and strains. In accidents where the rider has improper safety harnesses, he or she can fall out of or off of the ride, resulting in serious bodily trauma, brain injury, or death.
