Despite ever more stringent health and safety regulations, the risk of getting injured in a roller coaster crash remains comparatively high. Here are some of the injuries you could sustain in such a terrifying theme park accident.
Potential roller coaster crash injuries
Injuries sustained in a roller coaster crash can range from lacerations, torn ligaments and broken bones too:
- Stroke and/or carotid artery dissection (tears to the neck’s major artery)
- Brain aneurysms
- Traumatic brain injury
In many cases, falls from height due to roller coaster accidents are fatal. What’s more being involved in or even witnessing such tragic theme park accidents can leave you with lasting, potentially severely debilitating psychological and emotional injuries.
Hurt in a roller coaster crash
If you were injured in a roller coaster accident, be it physically or psychologically, you may qualify for roller coaster injury compensation. To qualify, your theme park injury must have:
- Been caused by someone else (i.e. a defective roller coaster, lack of maintenance or safety precautions)
- Occurred within the past 36 months
This, by the way, applies to all kinds of accidents at the theme park, including, for instance:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Scalding or burning injuries in theme park cafés
- Injuries by falling objects (i.e. items dropping from or out of high rides)
- Food poisoning infections and more
If you were hurt in any kind of accident at a theme park through no fault of your own within the last three years, you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim.
