When Fun Turns To Tragedy
Despite safety rules and precautions, amusement park accidents still happen, turning a day of fun into a tragic event. Amusement parks such as Cedar Point try to have the biggest and scariest rides – but, with larger thrills come greater risks.
Two common injuries at amusement parks are whiplash from roller-coaster rides and falls on wet pavement at water parks. Injuries at amusement parks happen for many reasons, including:
- Mechanical failure
- Design defects
- Ride operator recklessness or impairment
- Wet floors without proper warnings
- Failure of riders to use proper caution
Amusement park owners and their insurance companies fight hard to minimize the amount of money paid to injured parkgoers. It often takes extensive investigation, as well as testimony from medical experts and engineers, to build the strongest and most effective case.
