Theme Park Accidents

Dedicated Legal Attention

Illinois has a long and proud history with amusement parks. From the White City of the early 1900s to modern parks like Six Flags today, countless parks have provided the people of Illinois with fond experiences.

However, attractions like roller coasters and water slides that provide exhilaration and excitement can also be dangerous. Every year, thousands of people receive serious injury from amusement park rides, inflatable attractions, water slides, etc.

Some factors that contribute to injuries at amusement parks include:

  • Mechanical failure of the ride – if there is no inherent design flaw in an attraction, but a malfunction in the hardware caused the injury
  • Operator error – the attraction worked as intended, but the person operating it made a mistake
  • Passenger error – if a passenger doesn’t follow written or verbal instructions necessary for the safe operation of the ride.
  • Nature of the attraction – sometimes, injuries can happen even when a ride operates perfectly but still cause serious injuries like cerebral and retinal hemorrhages.

These factors can cause injuries like:

  • Damage to the head or spine from repeated impacts (bumper cars) or from sudden stops from high speeds (roller coasters, water slides)
  • Death due to ejection from an attraction
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) from objects hitting the rider’s head
  • Cuts, bruises, broken bones, and torn connective tissues
  • Drowning (water attractions like wave pools)
