Who Is Responsible for Water Park Accidents?
There are multiple parties in charge of the safety of water parks. Each accident is unique, and one or all these individuals may be responsible for a person’s suffering. In the worst cases, drowning accidents are fatal, and no at-fault party should escape accountability for their negligent behavior.
Those who might be responsible for water park accidents include the following:
- Water park designers
- Attraction manufacturers
- Water park builders
- Maintenance workers
- Other visitors
- Water park owners
The parties listed above are responsible for the injuries of water park guests under premises liability law. In short, because guests are invited to a water park, owners and staff have a responsibility to ensure their safety. If someone suffers harm at a water park, it's a failure on the part of owners and staff to protect them. Premises liability is simple: if a water park wants customers, they must ensure that their attractions are safe for everyone.
Water Park Accidents
Water park accidents happen in a variety of circumstances. Even though pool depths in parks rarely exceed a few feet, rough waters in wave pools, rushing water in slides, and other aspects of a water park can cause injury. Crowds make it difficult to spot when someone might be in distress, which is why highly-trained lifeguards are vital. Additionally, even a few feet of water in the wrong circumstances can cause someone to drown.
Common water park accidents include the following:
- Slip & fall accidents
- Diving injuries
- Incidents caused by defective attractions
What Can Water Park Accident Victims Recover?
Victims of a water park injury can pursue compensation for medical bills, time lost at work, and even emotional distress. If your loved one drowned at a water park, someone is responsible for failing to protect their life, and they must be held accountable to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Though nothing can change what happened to your loved one, you can obtain justice for them with the help of a water park accident attorney from Arnold & Itkin.
