Amusement parks are a typical go-to for summer fun. Surely at some point in time, we have all enjoyed a day riding rollercoasters and experiencing the thrill of the adrenaline rush from those rides. To some people, rollercoasters and amusement park activities sound like a nightmare. To others, it is a summertime favorite venture. These ventures should be enjoyed. It should be a day filled with fun when a day is spent at an amusement park. But when accidents happen, Sticklen, Dreyer, and Tinney are here to help.
The Amusement Parks of Missouri
You are sure to know of the popularly loved amusement parks of Missouri. Silver Dollar City, Worlds of Fun, Six Flags St. Louis, White Water and so many more. We love amusement parks in Missouri and don’t believe they should be something to fear. It should be encouraged to have fun at these wonderful amusement parks. But we know that in some cases, injuries happen and that is where we come in. Our attorneys are experienced in personal injury representation.
A Future of More Safety
While fatal accidents are quite rare, close to 30,000 injuries associated with amusement parks happen each year. Over the years there has been a steady rise in amusement park-related injuries. We agree it shouldn’t be this way. It is true that accidents happen, but we have found there are almost always steps that could have been taken to prevent these injuries. When the proper legal action is taken, amusement parks are forced to increase their safety for future generations. We want a future with more safety precautions. We want people to be able to have fun while being safe.
