Call an Experienced Lawyer if You Suffered a Roller Coaster Injury
Amusement parks are intended to be fun and entertaining places for families
to visit. 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. The personal injury lawyers at Belushin Law

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.
