Nationwide Legal Help
If you or your child has been seriously injured or killed at a water park we know that it may be devastating to the whole family. The sad truth is that a water park drowning is usually preventable. Consequently, when we consider a water park lawsuit, we will relentlessly search for all parties or companies that are responsible for the accident.
Unfortunately, far too many water park accidents are the result of property owner carelessness. Negligence plays a big part in many drownings and near-drowning cases.
In addition, a lack of supervision, lack of life guards, lack of warning signs, or even an actual problem with the premises may be to blame. In addition, premises & product liability laws can help to hold water parks responsible and accountable.

Water Park Lawsuit or Amusement Park Lawsuit? Who is liable for these accidents?
Cliff will generally look to prove a negligence claim against the Park and its employees or a product liability claim against the manufacturer of a defective ride or both.
Therefore, depending on what caused the injury or death, legal responsibility may rest with the Park’s owner, the negligence of the Park’s employees, the designer or manufacturer of an Amusement Park ride, layout of the Park or water park features, premises liability, a concession stand owner, or another company entirely different.
Thus, many times there is more than one company that may be wholly or partially at fault and responsible for paying compensation to the victim.
