Annually, spring equates to carnival and amusement park season. With fun in the air, the last thing many Ontario citizens are doing is thinking about the potential for injury and having to file a CPP disability claim. However, comparable to a swimming accident at a public pool or beach, amusement park accidents can lead to class action lawsuits. Today at motor vehicle accident lawyers, we will be looking at who is negligent when you or a loved one sustains injury at an amusement park. |
Despite their popularity, carnival rides are very dangerous to go on. As a result, many companies will require that customers sign waiver forms before they agree to go on certain rides. By signing a waiver form, you in effect give up your right to sue the amusement park should an injury happen. Yet, in some cases, if a serious injury is sustained or an accidental death takes place, your personal injury lawyer can still file a lawsuit against the amusement park.
Over the years, amusement park injuries have varied from broken bones to spinal cord injuries and almost always psychological and emotional trauma. With this in mind, understanding who was negligent for the accident taking place is very important. As your traumatic brain injury lawyer will indicate, you should contact the Technical Standards Safety Authority for a copy of their accident report. The TSSA is the governing body of carnival and amusement parks, as they determine how safe the equipment being used is. If the TSSA feels that the standard of care isn’t up to par, then their report on the incident can play a huge role in how much compensation you and your attorney are able to file against the carnival operators for your damages.
