Many theme park & ride injuries are minor and just cause bruises and scrapes. However, some times they are very serious. In these cases, you are lucky to escape with your life, but you will left with debilitating injuries, that can last a lifetime. About 4.5% of all theme park & ride injuries result in death.
Reckless riders are responsible for many injuries, but there also those that are caused by inattentive ride operators and defective machinery. It is pure negligence. Many such injuries end up in the courtroom and have lead to many theme parks & ride owners paying huge damages.
In one case, a carnival ride in Wichita collapsed, injuring 23 people. Four children from one family were injured. One of the injured children suffered brain damage, which left her with a life-long learning impediment. The parents of the children sued the ride owner and manufacturer. The manufacturer of the ride had to give a settlement of $3.3 million to the family of the injured children. It later became known that the ride collapsed after two lock nuts came loose. A similar incident had occurred on the same ride two years earlier, but the manufacturer had not warned the ride owners about it.
