Waterparks are a great way to beat the Austin heat, but can also result in serious injuries.
Slip-and-fall injuries can happen at waterparks, along with heat-related illnesses and drowning. If you are injured at a waterpark, do you know who should be held liable? If you are hurt, it is vital you understand your legal rights and contact an experienced Austin Personal Injury Lawyer in your community today.
Just like other theme and amusement parks, waterparks are accountable for operating activities and rides in a manner that will not cause injury to guests. If a waterpark ride is defective or if improper care caused a ride to malfunction, the waterpark may be held liable for injuries sustained as a result of the water ride.
Slippery areas at waterparks increase the risk of slip-and-fall injuries. Waterparks are also well known for water-borne viruses infecting guests. Food and water contamination can cause serious injury when parasites and bacteria spread to the water supply at the waterpark.
Young children and the elderly are at high risk of serious injury caused by contaminated water. A waterpark can be held accountable for these injuries if its conduct led to unsafe conditions on its premises.
Waterparks employ water ride operators, lifeguards and food servers, among others. All of these employees can cause you to incur an injury. Injuries and accidents caused by a waterpark employee may be the liability of the waterpark, assuming the employee’s error fell within the job description and duties of the employee.
