No one expects a day at an amusement and theme park to turn into tragedy.  However, every year statistics show that countless people suffer serious injuries or death while attending an amusement or theme park.

Amusement and theme park rides can be dangerous to children as well as adults.  Statistics from state agencies regulating amusement and theme parks along with the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission show that serious injuries lurk behind all the rides, lights, games, etc.

From fractured bones to wrongful death, many of these kinds of accidents are preventable and are caused by poorly maintained ride equipment and defective product design.  Ride operator error is also to blame and can be due to poor training, alcohol intoxication or drug use.
