Amusement Park Drowning Accidents
Drowning Lawyer Handling Cases Nationwide
Although one would assume that amusement parks are some of the safest places to enjoy swimming, sadly many children and even adults are injured and drown every year at amusement parks. Even in the presence of many other people, these tragedies still occur. As aquatic law is very complex and varies from state to state, having a drowning lawyer who is familiar with litigation in this type of field is crucial to the outcome of your case. There can be many issues which led to you or your loved ones drowning accident, including such things as:
- Improper staffing of lifeguards
- Improper training of lifeguards
- Amusement ride malfunctions
- Inadequate maintenance of pool and other water park ride facilities
- Product defects of pool drains or equipment
Lifeguards are held to training standards that require they follow the 10/20 rule, which allows for a lifeguard to be able to recognize that someone needs help within 10 seconds and reach the distressed person within 20 seconds. If there are too many people on a ride or pool and not enough lifeguards, it can become extremely difficult for that person to reach the drowning victim within the time required to save them.
