Water Park Accidents

water park accidents

In North America, there are more than 1,200 water parks, and the annual visitor attendance is roughly 85 million in just the summer months alone. And while water parks can provide lots of fun for you and your family, unless proper safety measures are followed, they can also be the source of drowning and near-drowning accidents as well as other serious injuries including brain injuries, orthopedic injuries, spinal injuries, etc.

Water park accidents can be caused by many factors, but some of the most common include:

  • Poor ride design or construction;
  • Improper maintenance and safety inspections;
  • Failure to properly train or supervise staff and ride attendants;
  • An inadequate number of life guards;
  • Inattentiveness of the life guards;
  • Failure to enforce weight and height restrictions for the ride;
  • Improper water flow or water capacity;
  • Failure to properly monitor capacity;
  • Missing or inadequate barriers;
  • Failure to train staff on how to properly respond to an emergency;
  • Failure to control rowdy or intoxicated guests.
