Waterpark Accidents: Who’s at Risk, Who’s to Blame?
Big Surf, Wet n’ Wild, Golfland Sunsplash, and Enchanted Island. These are just some of the favorite spots among families in Arizona, especially during the scorching hot summer months. But along with the splashing and laughing that happens at these waterparks, there are also unfortunately many accidents each year. So who’s mostly at risk for a waterpark accident, and who’s to blame when they happen?
Of course, anyone who goes to a waterpark is at risk for an accident, especially if they don’t take safety precautions such as obeying warning signs and running or jumping on slippery surfaces. However, studies performed by Saferparks.org states that while boys are at a bigger risk than girls for waterpark accidents, adult women incur more waterpark accidents requiring treatment than any other age group. Older individuals, especially the elderly, are also at great risk for waterpark accidents and are advised against certain waterpark activities, especially slipping and sliding down waterslides.
While drowning does unfortunately sometimes occur at waterparks, other injuries can result from waterpark accidents including severe head trauma from the head banging against hard and wet surfaces; spinal cord injuries; broken bones; fractures; paralysis; heart failures; and deformation. Should you or a loved one suffer from any of these accidents, the first thing you’ll want to know is who’s responsible.
