All the Fun of the Fair
Fairgrounds and amusement parks are wonderful places to spend the day, regardless of your age. With all the rides, the noise, the coloured lights and the candy on sale what could possibly go wrong? Unfortunately, there’s quite a lot that could go wrong and if you have had an accident and suffered an injury or illness at a fairground or amusement park you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in West Down.
Accidents at Amusement Parks
There are a variety of ways you could find yourself injured, or harmed in some way, whilst at an amusement park.
- Faulty rides – The owners of the fairground are responsible for ensuring that all the rides on their premises which are capable of being accessed by the public are properly maintained and in full working order. If they are faulty or defective in any way you could be injured as a result. You might have whiplash, or lacerations if sharp edges aren’t properly covered up, or something may fall on you causing a head injury or concussion.
- Slips, trips and falls – Fairgrounds are no different to any other public place. Owners have a duty of care to ensure that walkways and paths, or any area accessed by members of the public are free from hazards, are appropriately lit and any potential hazards are well signed to avoid someone not noticing them. Equally, in adverse weather, appropriate precautions should be taken to ensure the ground is still safe for access.
- Food poisoning – Fairgrounds and amusement parks are full of burger bars, sandwich stands, kebab stalls, anything you can think of pretty much. Most of the time these food stalls operate to exceptionally high standards; however, sometimes something goes wrong and a paying customer ends up with food poisoning.
If you have been injured at a fairground or amusement park in one of the ways mentioned above, then contact Accident Advice Helpline today to find out how you can make a compensation claim in West Down.
