Philadelphia Amusement Park Injury Lawyer
Summer is the favorite time of year for many people, when compared to the other 3 seasons which we experience in the northeastern section of the United States. The pools are open, people go camping, ice cream, and water ice is everywhere. As long as the weather is good, we are outside and having fun. With summer comes amusement parks and carnivals. We all love amusement parks and carnivals, and our children go bananas for them. Thrills and a perceived sense of danger are what entice the essence of their nature. Seldom do we seriously think about the safety of the situation. The reality is that entirely too many accidents occur at these parks and carnivals. This should not come as a surprise. Many of the carnivals out there are run by teenagers. They sometimes have shoddy equipment, which may be old or too worn to be safe. The same holds true at amusement parks throughout the tri-state area. Equipment failures or lack of procedures cause accidents. These accidents in turn can cause injuries, some of which are serious. For far too many people, a trip to the amusement park results to a trip to the emergency room.

When there is a failure on one of the rides at a park or carnival, the injuries can be devastating, and may include:
- Loss of a Limb
- Brain damage
- Head injuries
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Dental injuries
Many of the most popular parks have had failures which were either obvious or hidden. Here are some causes for failure:
- Bad welding or upkeep
- Improper maintenance
- Power issues and shortages
- Old and outdated equipment
- Lack of safety belts
- Operator error
There are agencies which govern parks, but they do not regulate as thoroughly or consistently as they ought to, which is another reason why accidents occur. Pennsylvania and New Jersey (particularly near the shore) have a high concentration of amusement/carnival rides.
