If you had a serious accident in a theme park then you may be able to make a claim for compensation through Canterbury accident claim solicitors, as long as you can prove that the accident was not your fault. You should always feel completely safe in a theme park, as the management and staff will have a range of methods in pace to keep all visitors safe every day. The reason for this is that theme parks could easily be quite dangerous, with all of the rides and people filling the space, but an accident can seriously harm the reputation of the theme park and send custom over to the nearest competitor. Here are some of the accidents that you could claim for at a theme park.
Slips, trips and falls
These must be the most common accidents at any theme park or outdoor venue, simply because it is so easy to slip, trip or fall. In most of these accidents, it will actually be the fault of the person who has fallen that they have tripped, perhaps because they were not looking where they were going or were running when they should be walking. However, a theme park can also be at fault if the ground is broken or uneven, or if clutter or cables have been left lying around and so on.
Accidents on the rides
Ride operators should constantly check the rides over to ensure that they are running safely, and that everyone is safely strapped in. Not only this, but it is also up to the ride operator to make sure that everyone on the ride is the right height and size. If any accident occurs because the ride has not been maintained properly, or a rider did not fit properly into the restraints, this should be a very good case for a successful claim. Theme parks will often have plenty of CCTV and witnesses, making it much easier for those who have sustained injuries to prove that they were not at fault.
