Phoenix Water Park Accident Attorneys
As a resident of Arizona, you know how hot The Grand Canyon State can get. That’s why Arizonians have found so many creative ways to cool off. Water parks are a fun way for the whole family to get some respite from our state’s often sweltering temperatures. Yet, while fun, water parks can also be dangerous. Every summer, visitors to water parks are injured and sometimes killed. These injury accidents can be due to overcrowding, poorly designed or maintained rides, inattentive employees, and lack of parental supervision.
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a water park accident, you need to find out exactly what caused that accident. If the accident was caused by any kind of negligence on the park’s part, you and your family may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and losses. To find out if you have a viable personal injury or wrongful death claim, you’ll need to consult an experienced Phoenix swimming accident lawyer. The legal team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. has been successfully representing Arizona injury victims and their families for two decades, helping them put their lives back together after unfortunate accidents.

- Slips and falls
- Falls from heights
- Diving accidents
- Pool suction-related accidents
- Head trauma
- Broken bones
- Cuts, lacerations, and scrapes

Water parks are fully aware of the liabilities associated with their facilities, and many make you sign a liability waiver when you enter. Don’t worry, those waivers rarely stand up in court. It doesn’t matter what the water park employees or their lawyers say; if you can find negligence, you have a case.
