What is a Water Park Injury?
A waterpark injury can include any health condition caused by an incident at a water park. These injuries can be anywhere from relatively minor to incredible serious. As water parks often rely on long slides and diving boards, it is possible that these pieces of equipment can collapse while being used. In these circumstances, the user and any nearby attendees could be put at great risk.
As with anything involving water, there is also the risk of drowning. This can be due to lifeguard negligence, poorly-marked depths and ineffective safety equipment. In many cases, drowning can lead to serious brain damage or even death, depending on the length of the incident and the actions of the lifeguard on duty.
Here at Tylers Solicitors, we understand just how dangerous these properties can be. If water parks are not effectively maintained and attendees’ safety isn’t monitored, then injury can be all too common. Our experienced team of no-win, no-fee legal experts are here to help you get the compensation that you need to move on with your life.
