Waterpark Accident Lawyer

Waterpark Accidents

Spending the day at an indoor or outdoor water park can be a fun and relaxing activity for the whole family. Great Wolf Lodge, Zehnder’s Splash Village, Avalanche Bay, Gold Rush, Splash Universe, and Soaring Eagle are just some of the great water park offerings in Michigan. However, the slides, lazy rivers, wave pools, and other attractions can be dangerous if every party involved in the creation and operation of the water park does not do their job carefully. Where water is involved, any negligence can quickly lead to severe injuries and the possibility of drowning.

There Are Many Ways Accidents Can Happen

Water park accidents can be the result of many factors. Swimmers may collide if slide operators do not ensure proper spacing between riders. Surf or flow rides with powerful water pressure can injure if riders are not given adequate instructions and warnings, or padding is not kept in place around the ride. A water slide may be poorly designed or installed to empty into a pool that is too small. The water park may perform improper maintenance or safety inspections or sanitation. There may not be enough lifeguards, or the lifeguards may not have been trained to appropriately respond to emergency situations. Water park staff may fail to control rowdy guests, monitor occupant capacity, or enforce height restrictions for a ride. When injuries result from these actions, the claim may sound in premises liability, negligence, product liability, intentional tort, or dramshop law.
