Water Park Injuries and Liability
Alaskans love to have fun during the summer. If you’re looking for a fun family outing, a water park fits often does the trick. It can be fun for both the kids and parents. Unfortunately, injuries sometimes occur. Slip and fall injuries are common, and waterborne pathogens sometimes infect park guests, young kids and seniors in particular. Drowings also happen. They are rare, but they do happen.
Water Park Settlements
There are some important legal considerations to keep in mind. First, there are no federal regulations in place to monitor the safety of water parks. State or local agencies will be govern safety; some states have no government ride inspection program at all.
Manufacturers of ride equipment may sometimes be liable for defects or poor recommendations on ride usage. Other parties involved in the assembly, installation, construction, or design of rides may be held responsible as well.
Customers have a responsibility to understand the risks involved in water-park activities, exercise good judgment, and act responsibly. Even though customers may be asked to sign a waiver of liability prior to entering the park, these waivers are frequently not an ironclad defense against a park’s liability.
