Thousands of people are injured in water park accidents every year. In a few terrible cases, some people are killed. These horrible accidents can leave the victim and family saddled with medical bills, painful injuries, lost work time, and emotional trauma.
Water Park Negligence Leads to Accidents
It is common for water parks and amusement parks to claim an injury was due to a freak accident. However, it is rare that personal injuries at a water park are due to mere chance. Most water park injuries are due to avoidable factors, such as:
- Poor maintenance
- Poor supervision of guests
- Improper design of water park attractions and rides
One or a combination of these factors can lead to drowning, submersion injuries and even death.
There are other dangers at water parks that can cause serious personal injuries. If the surfaces near the water park attraction are slick, slips and falls can result. Common accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Chest or heart trauma
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Crushing injuries
- Sprained or broken ankle
