Amusement Park Accident

A visit to Six Flags New England in Agawam is a special outing for many people in Massachusetts, Connecticut and beyond. When a trip to this park, or any theme or water park, ends in disaster because of injury or death, the injured person or his or her family may seek to receive compensation if the park had some responsibility for the accident. Our lawyers can help you file a claim.

Why You Need an Amusement Park Claim Experienced Injury Lawyer

Building a winning case after an amusement park accident
The personal injury lawyers at RDPA handle claims related to injuries and deaths because of negligence by amusement park owners or operators. We advocate vigorously for our clients to obtain payment for medical bills, lost income and other costs of the accident. We investigate the accident and the potential sources of compensation to build a strong case for those injured on a ride or elsewhere in the park.

Causes of amusement park accidents

Accidents at amusement parks occur because of:

  • Slip and falls
  • Drunk customers causing injury to others
  • Poor design of rides
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Untrained staff supervising the rides
  • Improper operation of rides
  • Inadequate staffing
  • Failure to warn customers about potential hazards of rides
  • Inadequate security

Amusement park operators are required to maintain the equipment and property and provide trained staff and supervisors. When they do not and accidents and injuries occur, the park owners can be liable.

Accidents at Six Flags in Agawam

Six Flags New England, like many amusement parks around the country, has been the site of a number of serious accidents. A 55-year old man fell to his death from a rollercoaster. Twenty-one people were injured when a rollercoaster train failed to stop at the platform and slammed into the train in front of it. A raft on the Blizzard Ride flipped over and pinned the passengers underneath it, resulting in serious injury to several. A bar in the park overserved a customer, resulting in a drunk driving accident that caused significant injuries.
