Nothing feels better than taking a dip in the pool and going down a waterslide on a hot summer day. Water parks in Salt Lake City boom as soon as the temperatures start to hit 70 degrees, and rightfully so; there’s no better way to escape the heat than by drenching yourself in cool, refreshing water.
While waterparks may be a relaxing, effective getaway from the high summer temperatures, they can also be dangerous. Personal injury is immanent if safety is not practiced; here is the most common water park injury that happens at water parks today.
Slip and Falls
The most common injury that occurs at a water park is a slip and fall. When you go to a water park, you can expect the ground around every pool and every slide to be wet, since there are park guests constantly going in and out of the water. It’s important for guests to walk and not run around the pools. Most slip and fall accidents happen because guests are running where there is the most water.
However, slip and falls are also caused by others negligence. There are cases where someone can be running past you, which can lead to a slip and fall on their end, often leading to them colliding into you. This can result in serious bodily injury⎯ if you’ve faced an injury due to the recklessness of another party, make sure you contact an attorney from Robert J. DeBry and Associates.
Who is Liable?
In order to find out who is liable, you have to take into account who was being reckless. If you were injured by someone who was running around the pool area, they must be held accountable for their negligence.
If the facilities failure to maintain the park led to your injury, the facility may be held liable for any personal injuries.
