It`s not an easy topic to discuss with everybody, but if you`ve suffered from someone else`s careless negligence – for example an operating physician`s mistake in surgery, a driver`s careless road fault, or even a theme park`s lack of maintenance that resulted in a ride going terribly awry and hurting passengers – then you have to talk with someone about it. It`s too important a legal matter to just leave simmer in your past and a “hope for the best” attitude. You must take a pro-active approach if you want to achieve any results.
Theme Park Accidents in particular seem to be more common in recent months. Doing a quick search, I discovered at least a half a dozen accidents occurred worldwide within just the last month alone. It appears that the worst offenders are the mobile amusement park rides that are very popular in smaller cities and towns. Now for the most part, I suppose that travelling amusement companies that visit our area are responsible and do take care of their rides maintenance wise. But I must admit that I do feel a little trepidation whenever I or my kids get on one of these rides. And now that I’ve seen these reports of accidents worldwide, I’m not any more at ease – that’s for sure.
But, I’m not going to stop going to amusement parks of course. They are a lot of fun and the kids love them. I’m sure we will be visiting the park again next summer when our national birthday is being celebrated and we will probably take a ride on the merry-go-round. Just because there was one incident a few years ago where the kiddie train went off the track and injured a number of people, it’s not going to stop us from taking a ride on the train either.
