No two piers are ever going to be the same, but many of the larger ones do offer a variety of rides visitors can try out. For example there are numerous rides on Brighton Pier and this isn’t the only one of its kind to offer them. Most people will head onto piers around the country when the weather is good, hoping to have a great time on those rides when they do so.
The majority of people will indeed have a great time, but for an isolated few the experience may be less than appealing. Accident Advice Helpline is just one of a number of firms that have heard of cases involving pier ride injuries, where standards have potentially not been as good as they should have been.
What might happen to lead to pier ride injuries?
Obviously every single ride should always be safe for everyone who uses it. If this is not the case and something goes wrong, an individual might end up being injured in some way. This could involve getting fingers trapped in a ride for example, or getting whiplash if a rollercoaster suddenly stops or jerks forward when it should not do so.
These are just a couple of examples; while many things can go wrong, fortunately few ever do. If someone does suffer an injury there is the potential to seek advice that will determine whether a compensation claim might be payable in their case. Every case is different, which is why such advice is a very good idea.
Having a great day out
If you are heading to a pier in the near future, don’t let this put you off. The vast majority of the thousands of people who go to piers up and down the country have a great time and nothing goes wrong. It is simply wise to know what should happen and whether or not someone might be injured as a result of negligence on the part of the pier owner.
