Child Injured in Slip and Fall Accident at Amusement Park

A personal injury lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a young boy injured in a slip and fall accident at a Texas amusement park. The boy required medical attention after gashing his chin when he fell on a metal object while visiting the park.

Slip and fall accidents can happen anytime anywhere, often with medical consequences for the victim. Amusement park outings are a frequent summer activity for many St. Louis families and their children. A summer trip to Six Flags is also the highlight of many summer camps, church youth outings and school groups. Unfortunately, excited children and harried parents are unlikely to be watching for unexpected slip and fall dangers in their path as they rush from ride to ride.

Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of St. Louis premises liability cases. Property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for employees, customers and guests. Slip and fall accidents often result in relatively minor injuries; but they can result in severe lacerations, broken bones that cause permanent disability, concussions and even death. The victims of slip and fall accidents can face expensive medical bills, extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation and loss of wages during recovery, placing a significant financial burden on families.
