Amusement Park Accident According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are approximately 5,000 amusement park accidents in the country per year. While there are several federal codes that regulate the safety of the parks, accidents still happen. Some of the more common causes of amusement park accident are: mistakes made by the ride operators, rides failing due to poor maintenance, defective rides, on-site assaults and robberies due to lack of security, etc.

Usually violations of the safety regulations end only in fines. However, the legal system does not leave the injured parties without recourse. If an accident takes place that could have been avoided were it not for the owners' negligence in maintenance and following the safety regulation, they may be held liable. This is because the owners have a legal duty of care to their patrons - they have the legal obligation to make sure that their premises, their employees and their rides are all safe for the visitors. If they fail to take reasonably steps to protect their visitors from undue harm, the injured party would have the right to compensation for the injuries and accompanying costs, such as: medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.
