Injured at Splish Splash, Adventureland? Our Long Island Amusement Park Injury Lawyers Can Help

Long Island Amusement Park Injury Lawyer

Amusement parks, such as Splish Splash, Adventureland, Rye Playland, Great Adventure and Action Park, offer fun and thrills for both kids and adults. But injuries do happen, including two tragic accidents several years ago at Adventureland in Farmingdale.

That summer, a park worker was killed after being struck by the Lady Bug Roller Coaster and, in a separate incident, a woman died after being tossed from the Top Scan, flying over a 20-foot-high wall before smashing into the windshield of a car.

More common accidents at amusement and water parks include:

  • Head, neck and back injuries from being whipped around
  • Brain injuries from rapid speeds
  • Broken bones and torn ligaments from fast rides or slips and falls around the park
  • Head, neck and other injuries from loose objects hitting a rider
  • Drownings and other injuries from water slides, “lazy river” rides, and other water rides.

It is important for amusement park owners to ensure that all rides are safe, properly run, regularly maintained and repaired when necessary. If you or someone in your family is hurt on a ride, the manufacturer and/or the park may be liable for your injuries. Factors that could help you collect compensation include:

  • Defective equipment
  • Equipment that is not properly maintained—such as worn-out safely belts or rusted belts
  • Improper maintenance procedures
  • Lack of proper operator training
  • Improper operation
  • Poor park layout
  • Inadequate security
  • Failure to post proper warnings
