Water Park Injury Lawyers

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Unfortunately, because many parks have outdated equipment, inattentive employees, and/or lax safety measures, accidents do happen.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.

  • Causes of Water Park Accidents

    Although most water rides are fun and safe, the sheer size of the attractions, the huge number of riders, and the ubiquitousness of water can be a dangerous combination. Like traditional amusement parks, water parks present a unique set of risks for riders. Some common causes of water park accidents include:

    • Lifeguard inattention and/or inexperience
    • Inadequate number of lifeguards
    • Equipment operator inexperience or lack of training
    • Faulty or poorly maintained equipment
  • Types of Water Park Accidents

    Most water park accidents fall into one of the following categories:

    • Slip-and-fall (or just fall, e.g., from a ladder)
    • Cuts and/or bruising from waterslide
    • Machinery malfunction
    • Drowning or near-drowning
  • Water Park Accident Injuries

    Though fatalities from water park accidents are rare, they do happen, while non-fatal injuries can be severe, even life-altering. These are some of the most common injuries that occur in these cases:

    • Cuts and bruises
    • Broken bones
    • Broken teeth
    • Sprains
    • Neck and back injuries
    • Tailbone injuries
    • Concussions
  • Proving Negligence

    If you were injured in a water park accident and believe the park’s owner, a lifeguard, an equipment operator, or another party may have been at fault, you might be wondering how to go about proving it. “Negligence” is the legal term for liability or responsibility in an accident. Proving liability generally involves satisfying the following criteria:

    • The ride operator owed you a duty of care. They were responsible for operating the attraction in a safe manner, and they failed to do so.
    • They breached their duty. The ride operator (or a lifeguard or another party) breached their legal obligation to avoid harming you.
    • Their breach caused the accident. The other party’s actions were responsible for the accident, making them legally liable.
    • There were losses suffered as a result. The other party’s actions caused you injury (physical or emotional) and/or property damage.
  • Potential Damages

    If you were injured in a water park accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation for:

    • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
    • Past, current, and future medical bills
    • Pain and suffering
    • Physical therapy
    • Loss of life’s enjoyment
    • Funeral expenses

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
