Looking for a way to keep the kids amused over the summer holidays? You can’t really go wrong with a day out at a theme park – great fun for kids and adults of all ages. From log flume rides to rollercoasters and spinning teacups, there are plenty of rides and attractions to keep the whole family happy, and you can easily spend a whole day enjoying yourselves. We often don’t stop to think about the dangers that could be lurking at amusement parks, but actually fun park injuries are fairly common.
Here are a few of the most commonly sustained fun park injuries:
- Head injuries
- Facial or eye injuries
- Broken bones
- Chipped teeth
- Cuts and bruises
- Severe lacerations
Food poisoning is also something which could strike you down if you are eating at the fun park and unlucky enough to consume contaminated food.
We can help you to claim personal injury compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident. If your child has been injured, you could claim on their behalf, just call our personal injury advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice. Theme park operators and owners must satisfy health and safety regulations in order to hold their licence, and if they breach these standards then they could be held liable for your injuries. It’s their job to ensure that rides and attractions are safe to use, clean and well-maintained. A faulty switch or lever on a ride could cause serious accidents that could lead to fatalities, so it’s vital that safety checks are carried out regularly.
If your child has been injured on a rollercoaster or suffered injuries on a log flume ride, take the 30-second test on our website and you could find out how much compensation you could claim for their accident. Our team of professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you have nothing to lose by making a claim.
