Amusement parks are a lot of fun and the people who go to them put a lot of trust in the amusement park that all of the attractions are properly maintained. Unfortunately, there are times when accidents happen and they can result in serious injury or death.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an amusement park accident, you may be able to hold the amusement park, the manufacturer of the ride, or the manufacturer of defective parts on the ride responsible for the damages. With the help of an experienced Minneapolis personal injury attorney, you can get the results that you are looking for.
At Swor & Gatto, we investigate every detail of your case to determine why the accident happened and what can be done to help you have a better future. In most cases, you will be looking at a liability lawsuit and an insurance claim based on any of the following:
- Failure to post ride warnings
- Design defects
- Improper operator training or operator error
- Mechanical defects or failure
- Inadequate maintenance and inspection
- Rusted belts, loose cables, improper belting, or sharp objects
- Sudden starts and stops
- Improper maintenance
If any of these issues are the cause of the accident, one or more parties can be held responsible so you can receive the compensation that you deserve so you can move forward.
