Nobody goes to an amusement park expecting to get hurt. Even those of us who have a tendency to be fearful will get on a roller coaster or ride, shrugging off our fears as we tell ourselves that amusement park operators are required to keep us safe, and that the ride just looks scary. The scary elements are all part of the fun.
Unfortunately, the voice of reason in our head is not always right, and there are far too many times that innocent guests at amusement parks end up getting inured, or even killed, as a result of negligence on the part of the park owner, their staff, or the manufacturer of the ride itself. If you have suffered an injury at an amusement park, you have legal rights. Contact the Philadelphia amusement park product liability lawyers at Bochetto & Lentz for information on how we can help.
When an injury occurs at an amusement park, it is shocking and the results can be devastating. There are both physical damages and emotional damages that need to be addressed. As experienced Philadelphia amusement park product liability lawyers, the attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz know that there can be multiple issues involved in these cases, and we are meticulous in our approach in order to ensure that you get the justice you deserve.

The injuries that are suffered at amusement parks can range from those suffered while on a ride to simply walking around the park and encountering a hazard. Rides account for the majority of the accidents, though inflatables such as slides and moon bounces are occurring more and more frequently, and water slides also account for a large proportion of visits to the emergency room. In most cases the injured are children between the ages of ten and fourteen, and many times these injuries are a result of falling out of a ride or being ejected from it. This is indicative of negligence on the part of the ride operator.
It is an unfortunate fact that every year the injuries that occur in amusement parks also include dozens of deaths. Injuries suffered can include head, neck and pack injuries suffered as a result of falling or being thrown from a ride or from trauma to ligaments in the neck. Many others suffer broken bones and lacerations.
