Visiting a theme park should actually be one of the safest days out you could have, as the theme park will be working round the clock to protect its guests from harm. A serious accident at a theme park could easily cost the park a lot of bad publicity, which will cause future visitors to decide to try another park instead, as they do not want to be injured as well. However, it is still possible to be injured in a theme park, and some of the most common types of injuries are slips, trips and falls. Here are some of the ways that you could sustain injuries from these types of accident at a theme park, and how to make an non fault accident claim in the Staffordshire Moorlands after your accident.
Any place which welcomes hundreds or thousands of guests each day should be aware that some of them may not be looking where they are going or may not be as nimble on their feet, making it more likely that they will suffer a fall. If the ground is broken, cracked or uneven then it is more likely that these types of accidents will occur, and it is down to the management of the park to ensure that the ground is well-maintained, and fixed if there is a problem.
Cables and other clutter
Any cables, wires or other objects should be cleared out of pathways so that guests don’t risk tripping over them as they move around the park. It will sometimes be necessary to run a cable across a pathway or into a public area, but then it should be well signposted so that guests know to avoid it.
Lack of railings or other barriers
There are often lots of raised areas within theme parks for people to queue in or walk across on their way to another part of the park. All of these should have secure railings so that people don’t risk falling from these high places. If there are no barriers and you fall, you may be able to make an accident claim.
