Recreational Activity Injuries Archives

Amusement park injuries are anything but fun

Many of the nation's amusement parks that have been closed for the winter will be reopening in coming weeks and months. These parks are designed for fun, and provide an option for a carefree day away from normal responsibilities. But negligence on the part of park staff, maintenance crews, ride designers or security detail can turn a day of fun into a long-term nightmare when visitors get injured on rides. 

Pay attention to skiing responsibility code to avoid accidents

A collision on the ski slopes can result in severe or even permanent injury. In extreme cases this could mean that the injured person will no longer be able to ski -- it could also mean paralysis if the person's spinal cord gets injured. Injury on the slopes can happen for a number of reasons. A skier can crash into a tree or other object, or lose control on dangerous terrain. Sometimes these accidents don't involve other people, and skier error or inexperience may be to blame. But when a serious injury results from a collision between two skiers, there can be disagreement over who is responsible, and therefore liable, for costs related to the accident. 

Blizzard of 2016 opens door to recreational sledding accidents

Now that the Blizzard of 2016 has passed through Pennsylvania, leaving more than two feet of snow in its wake, many kids will likely want to break out the sleds and inner tubes and take to the slopes. Unfortunately, some of those same children will likely be injured or even killed while taking advantage of the ideal winter sledding conditions. When those injuries result from negligence on the part of property owners who should have taken steps to protect anyone sledding from preventable harm, the injured person or his or her family may sue for damages. 

Snow tubing verdict a reminder to read the back of tickets

This past summer, a Berks County Court jury awarded a man a $2.1 million settlement for injuries he sustained in a snow tubing accident at the Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Conference Center in 2010. The man fractured his cervical spine, and suffered hernias and a spinal cord injury after he was unable to slow down on the icy slope, and flew into a net where he injured his neck and was hit by the next tuber coming down the slope. 

Cruise passengers can sue over infectious outbreak

No one buys tickets for a cruise hoping to spend several days incapacitated with diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. But infectious diseases don't care that you're on vacation. Furthermore, an enclosed space filled with lots of people is a perfect breeding ground for contagious disease. If you're stuck on a ship during an outbreak, what can be your personal nightmare is a dream come true for infectious organisms with ambition.
