Before You Or Your Children Get On Amusement Rides Beware Of Loose Clothing, Straps, Scarves, Or Belts Which Could Get Caught And Strangle Or Kill A Victim. Chances Are That The Operator Of The Amusement Attraction Is No Paying Attention
Recently a young 8-year old girl's scarf became caught in a carousel motor depriving her of oxygen and sending her into a coma while she was riding on a carousel amusement ride at a Paris carnival fairground. This strange but true factual scenario indicates just how dangerous loose clothing, scarves, or belts can be on amusement park rides.
While the amusement park’s management claim that this was the first time they had ever experienced such a serious accident, this tragic event should be noted by carnival and amusement park owners to insure that a repeat of this or a similar amusement park accident does not occur again.
At the experienced amusement park accident law firm of Reiff and Bily, we both believe and understand that chance favors the prepared mind and that all owners and operators of amusement parks have a duty to protect unknowing and innocent customers who come to their park seeking magical memories of excitement. We believe that those supervising and operating amusement park rides should have a safety inspection policy and be on the alert for any loose items of clothing or attachments that may potentially get snared or entrapped in a ride causing a catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
