Since amusement park injury lawsuits will usually be based either on premises liability or product liability, either case will be based on negligence — the careless actions that lead to the injury.
There is a duty for the manufacturer of the ride or apparatus on which the injury took place to design a safe product, or, once the product is issued and a defect is observed, to recall the product as defective. In an amusement park injury, if the manufacturer has had any understanding, communication, or research that shows a defect was known to have been present, it becomes a liability for that party. If a merry-go-round operator knows that one of the horses has a mechanism that sometimes skips and, extrapolating the defect out, would possibly throw a child to the pavement, that operator has not responsibly acted in good faith in maintaining their ride. If a death occurs, it becomes a wrongful death case.
