St. George Personal Injury Attorney | Utah Theme / Amusement Park Injury Accident Lawyer | Washington, Iron, Kane, Sevier & Salt Lake County.


What could be more fun than a day at the amusement park or the state fair?  Amusement parks offer innocent fun to entertain both adults and children alike.

Usually amusement parks, fairs, carnivals, water parks and other recreation venues provide a safe environment for their guests. But accidents can and do happen to thousands of people every year and many of those accidents result in severe or even fatal injuries as a result of failures to follow safety protocols or ride equipment malfunctions.

Most amusement park thrill rides involve machines that propel their riders at high rates of speed through loops and turns and gravity defying maneuvers, often far above the ground. Only a few years ago the fastest roller coaster’s top speed was only 50 miles per hour; today coasters and rides can reach close to 100 mph for short stretches.  While these machines and coasters were designed to create only an impression of danger, design defects, mechanical malfunctions, lack of safety harnesses, improper maintenance and operator neglect can lead to serious and catastrophic injuries or death.

Amusement park injury claims often involve premises liability, general negligence and products liability issues. Amusement park operators are accountable for any injuries caused by their rides or employees and subject to the same laws as any other business open to the public In some cases amusement parks are not as diligent as they should be in maintain their equipment and regularly checking their rides or coasters for structural defects, missing welds, rust or other evidence of wear.   Amusement parks often hire young and poorly trained seasonal employees to operate potentially dangerous rides.

Many water park employees who oversee water rides have no lifeguard or CPR training.
If you or your children have been injured at any theme park, water park, carnival, state fair, zoo or public aquarium, you may be entitled to compensatory damages.
