When people go to a theme park, they expect the attractions they will ride to be safe and intact. They do not want to get hurt riding attractions like a roller coaster or the Ferris wheel.
As a theme park owner, it is up to you to make sure your attractions are ready to go and as safe as possible. You can protect the safety and happiness of your guests by hiring a property inspector, safety examiner, and ride expert witness to take a look at and test the rides before you open for the season.
Defending Yourself in Court
Despite having all of the rides inspected and tested for safety, you still might find yourself subject to litigation in court. A guest might have accused you of not running a safe and fun park. This individual could have been hurt on a ride and is now suing you for thousands or millions of dollars.
You can prove your innocence by having this expert come into the courtroom to testify on your behalf. He or she can give an accurate report of what condition the ride was in and how it passed the safety inspection prior to the park opening.
This person could also suggest other ways that could have contributed to the person getting hurt. For example, the guest might have compromised the safety belt. He or she may have also purposely behaved in a way that was contradicted for the ride’s safety and purpose. His or her accident in this case was not your fault.
The expert testimony could benefit you as the park owner and explain the accident in a way you may not be able to in front of a judge and jury. With the person’s input, you could avoid having to pay out damages that could compromise your park’s bottom line.
The safety of your theme park is crucial to your guests’ happiness and your profitability. You can make sure rides are ready to go and also defend yourself in court if needed by retaining the services of an expert who can inspect and test the rides.
