Accidents in public places
Throughout the world, millions of people of all ages visit theme parks every year. For every visitor the thrill is different: some thrive on the danger and fear factor of the tallest or fastest roller coasters while others simply enjoy the smiles on their children’s faces as they discover the smaller rides.
Whatever your reason for visiting a theme park, you have the right to be safe as you do. In the event that you were injured whilst in a theme park and the accident which caused your injuries was not your fault, you have the right to make serious injury claims in Cambridgeshire.
Theme Park Safety
Theme park owners, like the owners of any other destination where the public are welcomed, have specific obligations to their visitors in terms of health and safety. These are complex and numerous but essentially state that the owners and all of their employees will take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of guests and visitors at all times.
This may mean:
- Ensuring all paths and walkways are clean and clear of hazards
- Ensuring that food hygiene regulations are maintained at all times in food and beverage outlets
- Ensuring all rides and attractions are properly maintained, regularly tested and free of wear and tear
- Ensuring that the proper safety regulations are maintained on each individual attraction (i.e. seatbelts, harnesses, height restrictions, appropriate passenger numbers)
- Attending to the training of all staff on a regular basis
Any failings in these regards that lead to an accident or injury could result in an accident injury claim in Cambridgeshire.
Seeking serious injury claims in Cambridgeshire
Although part of the attraction of a theme park is the thrill of danger, the actual situation should always be safe. In the event of a failure of this, then you may seek out an accident injury claim in Cambridgeshire.
Making an accident injury claim in Cambridgeshire not only gives you access to the compensation you’re entitled to but could also ensure that the situation is fully investigated and the circumstances eradicated. This in turn means that there is a reduced risk of a similar accident or incident occurring in the future. Making a claim against those responsible can highlight safety issues and actually help protect other members of the public from being injured in similar ways.
