As the weather improves, more and more people will pack up their families and head to the local amusement parks. Unfortunately, these parks can create many different opportunities for injuries. These injuries often result from a slip and fall accident. While some slip and fall accidents leave victims with only minor injuries, many others will cause significant harm. When this occurs, victims may be entitled to compensation from the owner of the park or a third party involved in the accident.
10 Types of Injuries Occurring after Amusement Park Slip and Fall Accidents
What are some of the common types of injuries that occur due to a slip and fall accident at an amusement park? The following are ten examples:
- Head traumas, including traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries

- Shoulder and arm injuries
Depending on the type of injury, victims may incur significant expenses and losses as a result of their slip and fall accidents.
