Water Park owners and ride manufacturers have a duty to take reasonable steps to keep patrons of a park safe. When patrons of a water park are injured due to the negligence of a water park owner or ride manufacturer, they are entitled to compensation for their harm.

Types of Water Park Accidents Handled by Our Team
Common causes of accidents at water parks in California include:
- Defective water slide design;
- Improper maintenance of water attractions or walkways;
- A failure of the park to warn users about the risks a ride presents;
- Negligent security; or
- Negligent employee hiring or supervision.
To prove a water park accident claim in California, a plaintiff must prove the elements of a negligence claim. This means that a plaintiff must prove that:
- a defendant owed them a duty;
- the defendant breached this duty; and
- the breach of duty was the proximate cause of their harm.
Any of these three elements can be hotly contested in any given case. In particular, defendants will often claim that they did everything they reasonably could have done to prevent the accident, and thus did not breach their duty. In many other cases, defendants will argue that the specific harm the plaintiff complains of was caused by some other incident rather than the water park accident.
Because these types of cases can be legally and factually complex, it is imperative for anyone seeking to bring a water park accident claim to have qualified and experienced legal counsel on their side.

Compensation Available to Water Park Accident Victims
The goal of California tort law is to compensate victims of tortious conduct as fully as possible. California law permits compensation for:
- Medical bills;
- Property damage;
- Lost wages (including any diminished future earnings);
- Pain and suffering; and
- Punitive damages (when a defendant was grossly negligent or intentionally caused harm).
Wrongful Death Claims
In tragic cases where a victim is killed in a water park accident, certain surviving family members may be able to bring a wrongful death claim. These types of claims compensate family members for their own loss. Things like loss of companionship, loss of consortium, loss of family wages, and the loss of any other value the victim had to the family can all be compensable.
