There are a number of water parks in the state of Texas. These parks draw thousands of visitors every summer, looking for a fun way to beat the heat. There is Bahama Beach in Dallas, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Arlington, Hawaiian Falls in Garland, Splash Town USA in Houston, Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine and many more. These parks are immensely popular but may also be the sites of serious accidents, injuries and wrongful deaths. When these incidents are caused by negligence of any kind on the part of park operators or employees, this may provide the injured party with grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
Why do drowning accidents occur at water parks?
Though there may be some level of risk associated with water rides, tide pools and the other various attractions in Texas water parks, there are situations where injuries could have been avoided if attractions had been properly built, maintained and inspected. Negligent supervision of children and adult park visitors may also be to blame for drowning or near drowning accidents.
Water park operators have a legal obligation to take reasonable measures to ensure grounds are free from hazards that may cause injury to parkgoers. Lifeguards on duty at various attractions must be vigilant in observing parkgoers, particularly children. Water park owners and property management companies must ensure proper maintenance in order to keep rides functioning properly and must ensure proper cleaning to avoid water-borne diseases.
