Every year, thousands of families flock to local water and amusement parks. And, every year companies that own and manage these parks add faster, higher and more thrilling rides that will bring in visitors who are always seeking something new and more exciting – and, potentially more dangerous. At the same time, as older rides’ popularity declines, so does the maintenance necessary to keep them safe.
As parents, we know the joy of sharing a day of fun with our children. As personal injury attorneys at the Franklin Law Group in Louisville, we have seen the heartbreak of children harmed because of failed maintenance, ride design flaws, mechanical failure, or poorly trained or inattentive ride attendants.
Injuries range from broken bones, concussions and contusions to debilitating conditions such as:
Financial responsibility for amusement park injuries may fall under premises liability or product liability or both. When we work for you, we explore all avenues of liability to ensure you receive fair and full compensation for the injuries you or your child has suffered.
In June of 2007, our client went for a ride on an exciting local attraction, the Superman Tower of Power. This ride hoists a car 170 feet in the air, and drops quickly down. On this day, one of the car’s tow cables snapped as the car was being elevated. As the car dropped, the cable ripped our client’s feet off just above the ankles. During discovery, it was revealed there was failure to maintain the cables in compliance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, including failure to lubricate the cable, failure to change the cable when it became worn and placement of cornstarch on the cables.
