Legal Options after an Amusement Park Injury in Illinois

Posted on in Slip and Fall

IL injury lawyerWe usually hear about amusement park injuries when a catastrophic accident occurs on a roller coaster or other thrill ride. However, most amusement park injuries do not make the news. If you or a loved one were hurt in a slip and fall accident, swimming pool accident, or another accident caused by unsafe conditions at an amusement park, it is important to explore your legal options. You may be facing steep medical bills and other financial consequences because of your injuries. A premises liability claim against the amusement park may allow you to recover compensation.

Injuries at a Fair, Carnival, or Amusement Park

For many, visiting a carnival, amusement park, or other outdoor festivities is the best part of summer. However, an unexpected accident can turn a fun outing into a trip to the emergency room. The owners and managers of amusement parks, water parks, and carnivals are expected to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition. When an unsafe condition causes a patron to be injured, the facility may be liable for damages.

Examples of unsafe conditions that could lead to an amusement park injury include:

  • Electrical hazards
  • Loose electrical cords or cables
  • Slippery surfaces and spilled liquids
  • Fire hazards
  • Unsanitary food preparation
  • Trip and fall hazards
  • Unsafe swimming pools
  • Improperly stored chemicals and hazardous materials
  • Loose or broken handrails
  • Defective stairs

Liability for an Amusement Part Accident

If you were injured at an amusement park or fell ill because of conditions at the facility, the amusement park may be to blame. The owner of the property on which the event took place may also be liable for the accident. If the injury was caused by a business within the facility, such as a food truck, that company may be the liable party. A personal injury attorney can help you determine who is legally responsible for your damages. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your emergency room and hospital bills, medication, and follow-up care. You may also be entitled to compensation for the lost income you suffered from missing work during your recovery. Compensation for non-financial harm such as your physical pain and suffering may also be available.
