Water Slide Accidents
Whether you like to enjoy the water slides at SoundWaves at the Opryland Hotel, Boro Beach in Murfreesboro, Nashville Shores, Dollywood's Splash Country or any other water park in Tennessee, you know that water slides are thrilling and fun, but they can also be very dangerous if safety is not a priority at the water park. Water slides often mimic the turns and drops of a roller coaster, but unlike a roller coaster, the rider is not restrained. So if the water flow is too high, the rider can be thrown from the ride and suffer serious injuries. Or another common mechanism of injury is ride attendants who fail to ensure proper rider spacing. If riders are not spaced appropriately, they can collide on the ride itself or the second rider can collide with the first rider as the first rider is trying to exit the ride. Water slide injuries can also occur if the pool at the bottom is not sized properly or has not been filled to an adequate water level. Improper design, construction or maintenance can cause many water slide injuries. Finally, the water slide accident may be attributed to an act or omission by the water slide staff.
