Amusement park owners throughout the state of Louisiana are consistently working to out-do their competitors in order to boost their appeal and increase their revenues. New roller coasters and other amusement park “thrill” rides are popping up all the time, oftentimes billed as being the world’s fastest, highest and scariest. Unfortunately, these rides are giving riders a lot more than they pay for, often including broken or bloody noses, fractured limbs, neck and back injuries, brain damage, paralysis and even death. The increase in thrill ride accidents is alarming as countless people suffer injuries each year.
Several factors are at fault in these injuries – consumer behavior, operator behavior, mechanical failure, and design defects. Liability for amusement park accidents and theme park injuries generally involves three types of law – negligence or tort law, product liability law and premises liability law. While there may be some question over who is blame for the accident, there is no question that those injured while riding amusement park attractions suffer pain and loss because of their injuries.
