When Amusement Parks Are No Longer Amusing
We take our children to amusement parks assuming that the rides are safe and the thrills are over imagined dangers — not real ones. Sadly, thousands of children suffer serious injuries or die each year because the rides are not as safe as we were led to believe.
At the Houston law offices of B. L. Jensen, L.P., we represent families in cases of amusement park accidents. We handle accidental injuries at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island, SplashTown, Six Flags and other amusement and water parks in Texas. With Brian Jensen, a board-certified personal injury attorney, at our helm, our legal team will help you receive compensation so your injured child can receive the medical treatment he or she needs. We have nearly 40 years of experience representing injured children and their families.
Amusement Park Accidents And Negligence
Amusement park ride accidents may result from a variety of causes, including:
- Mechanical failure such as a lap bar or car coming loose while the ride is in operation
- Operator error such as failure to properly fasten a rider’s safety belt or stopping the ride too suddenly or in the wrong place
- Defects in ride design, manufacture or materials
- Rider errors
We will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident and consult experts to determine what went wrong and who was responsible. Even if your child was partially at fault for his or her injuries, you may still be able to recover compensation. In Texas, you can recover compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death case as long as the victim’s fault does not exceed 51 percent.
