With waterslides, wave pools, bumper boats, and other aquatic attractions, water parks can be an absolute blast for the whole family. They’re especially popular in Orlando, Florida, where the top four parks (Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Volcano Bay, and Aquatica) drew more than 7.5 million visitors in 2018. Nationwide, around 1,300 water parks attract tens of millions of people in the U.S. each year.
Unfortunately, because many parks have outdated equipment, inattentive employees, and/or lax safety measures, accidents do happen. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported 4,200 trips to the emergency room for people who’d sustained waterslide-related injuries at water parks in 2015.
If you were injured in a water park accident, you may be able to recover significant financial compensation. Keep reading to learn how a Morgan & Morgan water park accident lawyer can help.
