If you have been injured while visiting a theme park, water park, sporting complex, leisure centre or indoor trampoline park, you may be entitled to make a public liability compensation claim. Seeking a claim can help you receive compensation for loss of income and paying for medical expenses after an accident has occurred.
Accidents can happen at any time, at any location. Even though some venues are built for fun and leisure, they are not exempt from injuries.
How do accidents occur?
Injuries can occur when visitors have not followed the correct safety instructions from staff or the operator has been negligent in some way, as they have a responsibility to ensure the highest safety standards.
How park operators can be negligent
Operators of a theme park, water park, sporting complex, leisure centre or indoor trampoline park can be held accountable for injuries that occur where the risk of injuries are reasonably foreseeable.
Examples of negligence
- A visitor at a trampoline park injures his ankle as there was no adequate protective padding on the metal frame.
- A small child spending the day a theme park with their family experiences whiplash from a rollercoaster as there was no sign to demonstrate a height limit.
- At a water park, a young man is running between rides and slips on a wet tiles that did not have a sign to warn patrons of its slippiness.
Common injuries might include whiplash, soft tissue damage to neck or back, sprains, head collisions, hyperextension or dislocation, water inhalation or drowning and fractures.
