A Dozen Amusement Park Visitors Stranded On Superman Roller Coaster Ride

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

News reports that a dozen amusement park visitors were rescued from the Six Flag’s Superman roller coaster ride in Vallejo California this past week. The riders were stuck in a stalled train car more than 150 feet in the air for nearly two hours. The ride stopped just at the top of the ride, right before a twist. Fortunately, the riders were stuck in an upright position, rather than while hanging upside down. It was not immediately known what caused the mechanical failure. Firefighters and a park mechanic went up in a personnel bucket to reach the riders with the intention of either starting the ride or to take the passengers down individually. However, a mechanic was eventually able to restart the ride, with the passengers lowered backwards to the ground.

In this instance the visitors to Six Flags were lucky – however, this is not always true. On rare occasions individuals may suffer serious personal injuries or even a fatal accident at an amusement park in California. If you or a loved one has sustained and injury while visiting a California amusement park, it’s important to consult with an experienced Sacramento amusement park attorney right away.

An amusement park accident may happen for any number of reasons. For example, a ride may be unreasonably dangerous, or the park may fail to adequately warn of the particular dangers or risks associated with a ride, or in some instances there may be a mechanical failure or defective part that leads to an accident. Whatever the reason for a particular accident, it is important to consult with a top California amusement park accident lawyer.

Examples of injuries that may occur include:
  • Wrongful death
  • Neck and head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries.
In many situations, it may be possible to recover compensation for an amusement park injury. Although riders may agree to some risk when boarding a particular ride – that risk cannot be unreasonable. Further, where a vendor or third party – such as the manufacturer of a ride or component used for the ride – provides a defective part or negligent service – it may be possible to bring a civil lawsuit seeking damages. Damages may include awards for such things as medical expenses, lost compensation, pain and suffering and emotional distress.

Suffering a serious personal injury at an amusement park can ruin a day that is meant to be a fun escape. If you or a loved one has been in any type of accident at a California amusement park, please contact a top Sacramento personal injury laywer at the Law Offices of Frederick J. Sette right away for a free consultation.
