Amusement Park Injury in Philadelphia
Summer is the favorite time of year for many people compared to the other 3 seasons we experience in the northeastern United States. The pools are open; people go camping, and ice cream and water ice are everywhere. We are outside and having fun as long as the weather is good. With summer comes amusement parks and carnivals. We all love amusement parks and carnivals; our children go bananas for them.
Thrills and a perceived sense of danger are what entice the essence of their nature. Seldom do we seriously think about the safety of the situation? In reality, too many accidents occur at these parks and carnivals. This should not come as a surprise. Many of the carnivals out there are run by teenagers.
They sometimes have shoddy equipment, which may be old or too worn to be safe. The same holds at amusement parks throughout the tri-state area. Equipment failures or lack of procedures cause accidents. These accidents, in turn, can cause injuries, some of which are serious. For far too many people, a trip to the amusement park results in a trip to the emergency room.

When there is a failure on one of the rides at a park or carnival, the injuries can be devastating and may include:
- Wrongful Death
- Loss of a Limb
- Brain Damage
- Head injuries
- Neck Injuries
- Dental injuries
Many of the most popular parks have had either obvious or hidden failures. Here are some causes for failure:
- Bad welding or upkeep
- Improper maintenance
- Power issues and shortages
- Old and outdated equipment
- Lack of safety belts
- Operator error
Some agencies govern parks, but they do not regulate them as thoroughly or consistently as they should, which is another reason why accidents occur. Pennsylvania and New Jersey (particularly near the shore) have a high concentration of amusement/carnival rides.
