San Antonio Amusement Park Injury Lawyers

Thousands of people go to San Antonio's amusement parks every year.  These parks offer their guests wild and exciting rides, fun activities, delicious food and drink, and fantastic sights.  While the risk of being injured at an amusement park is relatively low, accidents can still happen.  Whether you are visiting a state fair, theme park, carnival, water park, or another amusement park, negligent or reckless behavior can lead to serious injuries and even death.  If you’ve been injured at an amusement park, be sure to contact an experienced amusement park injury lawyer at Zinda Law Group of San Antonio for a free consultation right away. 

Negligence at Amusement Parks

Amusement parks have a duty to keep their guests safe from foreseeable risks that might cause them harm.  Unfortunately, despite this duty, owners, operators, and employees may engage in careless or reckless actions that result in injury to others.  Some common situations that might lead to a negligence action include:

  • Poorly Maintained Buildings or Rides
  • Slippery Floors or Other Surfaces
  • Defective Rides
  • Defective Carnival Game Equipment
  • Dimly Lit Areas Like Stairwells and Parking Lots
  • Employees That Might Be Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
  • Improperly Trained Employees
  • Easy Accessibility to Dangerous Areas
  • Walkway Obstructions
  • Falling Objects

While most amusement parks should conduct routine safety inspections and hire competent and trained employees to operate rides and games, people can still be injured despite these safety precautions. 

State and county fairs must also keep their guests safe, but the safety measures at these parks may not be as stringent as those at larger and more permanent parks.  In addition, unlike larger, permanent parks, rides and game stations are frequently set up and taken down on a repeated basis and transported around the country.  In these instances, rides may not be maintained properly, may be outdated and overused, and may not be set up to operate safely.  Even the staff at these events may only be temporary, or inexperienced and improperly trained.  One or a combination of these negligent or careless actions can lead to devastating and life-changing injuries. 

Injuries Sustained at Amusement Parks

Injuries that one might sustain at an amusement park can range from bumps and bruises to strains, sprains, and broken bones to concussions.  But in cases where someone falls from the towering heights of a giant roller coaster or water slide, the injuries can be catastrophic and even fatal. 

When it comes to an amusement park accident injury claim, the issues involved can be complicated and complex, particularly because several individuals or corporations may be liable for your damages.  If you’ve been injured in an amusement park accident, whether at a large theme park or local county fair, it is imperative that you consult with a lawyer who has the knowledge and skills necessary to handle your case, conduct a thorough investigation into the facts, deal with large corporations and insurance companies, and help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
