    Inner Tube Ride Injuries

    Inner tube rides are typically advertised as a safer ride, comfortable for children and groups of riders to enjoy together. Many ride operators allow parents to ride these tubes with their children, even if they are only intended to seat one rider. These tubes float, which helps riders maintain some level of comfort. However, these tubes are not life preservers and are not intended to save lives in an emergency situation. In fact, they may cause more risks than they prevent.

    Steering an inner tube is quite difficult. While this might be part of the fun of riding one of these rides, it also creates a danger to other riders. Patrons who let their tubes go off course or travel too fast put other riders at risk. Especially at the end of the ride, other riders may be hit by fast-moving tubes. If you are hit, you could easily be pushed into the hard plastic or concrete walls of these rides. This could cause skull fractures, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries.

    Injuries from asphyxiation and drowning are also possible on many inner tube rides. While drowning can certainly be fatal, drowning victims often recover. However, any amount of time where the brain is not being fed oxygen due to inhaling water could cause serious hypoxia injuries. Inner tube rides often have deeper water than other water slides. Whether tubes are used on a water slide or floating on a water course, they require deeper water to allow them to run smoothly. If a rider falls off the tube, they may be unable to reach the surface if the other tubes crowd the surface. Additionally, if one of the other tubes bumps the struggling rider, they could bounce into a wall and fall unconscious, increasing the risk of drowning injuries.

    Inner tubes are not life preservers or emergency, life-saving devices. Many riders simply understand that these tubes float, and may rely upon the tubes to compensate for poor swimming abilities. If this happens, riders may be unable to help themselves up onto an inner tube and could drown in the attempt. However, water parks may not warn of these risks, setting patrons up for disaster.

    Compensation for Inner Tube Related Injuries

    Water parks often have large legal teams to protect their image and reputation. Since these parks must maintain the public appearance that they run a safe, fun park, their legal teams work to shut down injury claims. If you were injured, park representatives may reach out to you in an attempt to give you free park passes or otherwise try to prevent a lawsuit. Their legal teams may even work to stop your legal claims from the beginning.

    If you or a loved one was injured, hire an attorney to protect your interests. The lawyers at Reiff Law Firm have fought numerous water park injury cases on behalf of injured victims. Our attorneys understand the tactics that large amusement parks use to fight legal claims, and know how to fight back. We look out for our clients’ interests and fight for their compensation. It is difficult to understand what your injuries might be worth without first talking to an attorney about your injuries and their cause. Our attorneys can also help you understand what your case may be worth.

    With a personal injury lawsuit, you might be able to recover compensation for all of your expenses related to the injury. This includes damages for your medical expenses, including the cost of emergency medical transportation, CAT Scans, MRIs, physical therapy, and checkups. If you had to miss work, you might be entitled to compensation for lost wages, both past and future. You could also be awarded substantial damages to compensate your pain and suffering directly.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
