Speed Slide Injury Attorney

Table of Contents

    Water slides are dangerous enough without the added speed of “speed slides.”  These water park rides became popular due to thrill-seekers looking for faster and faster water slides.  Unfortunately, though, many speed slides offer very little protection for riders, who can fall off the slide or suffer severe impact injuries when the ride fails to slow them down at the end.

    If you or a loved one was injured in a speed slide accident at a water park, talk to an attorney today.  The water park injury attorneys at Reiff Law Firm fight to get injured amusement park guests the compensation they need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  Any water park injuries have the potential for high compensation.  Talk to an attorney today to understand what your case might be worth.

    Common Speed Slide Injuries

    Water slides may be fun, but they also create a high risk of injury.  Many injuries occur from impacting parts of the ride or other riders.  Most slides are made of hard, plastic materials.  When you strike one of these walls at the wrong angle, you could break bones, tear ligaments, or injure your head and brain.  Severe impacts against the walls or ending zone of a water slide could leave you with traumatic brain injuries.  If these injuries occur in an area where help cannot immediately get to you, you could even drown.  Since many areas on water slides cross with the paths of other riders, or bystanders and lifeguards at the end of the ride, you could also suffer injury by colliding with these other people.  Speed slides are especially dangerous for these injuries because of the added risk of higher speeds.

    Speed slides often use steep slopes and sharp curves to enhance the thrill.  However, these sharp declines or curves create a risk of throwing the rider from the slide.  Since many of these slides are half-tubes, with the top exposed, riders could slip over the edge and fall off the ride entirely.  When a drop includes level portions or bumps in the ride, riders could be launched off these portions.  The same goes for tight turns where the wall of the ride is too short to contain riders.

    Even if you manage to keep from falling off the slide, you could still suffer injuries if you are launched from the surface.  A quick bump that pushes the rider into the air can cause severe injury when you land on your back.  Even more severe injuries can occur if the ride’s operator allows you to go down backward or on your stomach.

    Recovering Compensation for Speed Slide Injuries

    Seeking compensation for your water park injuries may be a complicated process.  Because of this, it is absolutely vital that you hire an attorney.  Since many water parks may be located in a state other than your home state, it may be complicated to file for compensation in a court that is conveniently located.  Similarly, since many water parks survive on their reputation as safe, fun establishments, their legal teams may be difficult to overcome.

    The attorneys at Reiff Law Firm have experience fighting amusement parks across the country to get injured victims the compensation they need.  You may be entitled to many forms of compensation for your injuries.  If you required medical treatment for your injuries, you could be entitled to have all of those expenses reimbursed.  This includes the cost of emergency transportation, surgeries, X-Rays, MRIs, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.

    If you had to miss work or were unable to return to work because of your injuries, you might be entitled to have your wages compensated.  This includes both past wages and wages you will miss in the future.  Lastly, you might be entitled to direct compensation for your pain and suffering.

    If the amusement park that caused your injuries was violating safety standards, you might be entitled to additional compensation.  Many courts will award “punitive” or “exemplary” damages to punish large corporations who fail to follow safe practices or otherwise endanger many customers.  If the amusement park failed to properly maintain rides, failed to train staff, or otherwise put your safety at risk, they could face punitive damages. This means higher compensation for your case.

    ...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.
