Amusement park rides are getting a little bit faster and more intense with every new creation, and along with an increase in excitement, this has led to an increased number of injuries that are happening at amusement parks and theme parks in Ontario.
While most amusement park injuries are minor, there are some that can be very serious and catastrophic, including broken bones, back and neck injury, paralysis and traumatic brain injury. These types of injuries can be life-threatening, and can have life-long repercussions for your child.
Even with insurance coverage, medical care following such a serious accident quickly adds up. If your child requires full-time care, you may need to take time off work or hire outside assistance. You may worry about how your family can cover these costs in the future, when you would rather be focused on helping your child recover.
In Ontario, the Technical Standards & Safety Authority or TSSA is responsible for ensuring that rides are inspected and run by properly trained staff. Additionally, the Occupiers’ Liability Act requires the owner of the amusement park property to ensure that all reasonable measures are taken to keep people safe at their amusement park. If the owner or operator of a theme park was negligent in any way, you may be able to bring a claim against them for compensation.
