The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that approximately 8,800 people visit emergency rooms on an annual basis as the result of injuries sustained on amusement park rides. Thousands more likely suffer minor injuries but do not seek medical attention. Amusement park owners have the duty to ensure all rides and attractions are safe for guests, and should never allow patrons to ride inappropriate rides for their size, age, or health conditions.

If you have been injured, always seek medical attention and then consult with a Philadelphia personal injury attorney to discuss a possible case.
