Who Might Be Liable for an Amusement/Water Park Accident

Depending on the underlying circumstances of an amusement or water park accident, various parties may be responsible for injuries that a visitor suffered in the accident. First, a park owner/operator may be liable for an accident that occurs due to the owner’s negligence in operating the park, such as failing to perform necessary maintenance, negligently hiring/training/supervising park staff, or providing inadequate security/supervision.

When an amusement or water park accident occurs on a park ride, the ride’s designer or builder may be liable if the accident occurs due to a design or construction defect in the ride that created the risk for an accident. 

Third-party contractors working for the park operator may also be responsible for an accident, such as engineering firms hired to repair or maintain rides or security companies hired to maintain park security.
