In and around the Chicagoland area, from Navy Pier’s famous ferris wheel to Six Flags’ thrilling roller-coasters, there are several fun places for residents and visitors to play. Amusement parks appeal to young and old alike, so families often enjoy spending the day together at a theme park, water park, carnival, or fair.
Many park rides and attractions are safe, but sadly, accidents do happen. Every year, thousands of people suffer minor to catastrophic injuries due to the negligence of park owners or staff. One loose cable or exposed wire can result in disaster.
Injuries can be caused by:
- ride operator error
- defective design
- lack of proper safety equipment
- poor maintenance
- mechanical failure
- insufficient supervision
Accidents can also be caused by the behavior of other guests and inadequate security. If you or a family member are hurt, be sure to contact a lawyer who can help you understand your rights and what kind of compensation you could be entitled to.
