"Identifying Product Liability Issues in Amusement and Water Park Accidents" - (2013)

Successful prosecution of an amusement park or water park accident often involves an overlooked product liability component.The Consumer Product Safety Commission has limited authority to regulate fixed amusement sites despite the fact that the risk of accidents continues to increase significantly.Amusement rides are becoming more technically advanced to provide greater "thrill factor".As a result many accidents can often be traced to a component failure,failure of a safety device or design defect which can give rise to a product liability action.Ride design factors,failure to warn and inadequate warnings becoming primary issues.
