Malfunction Injury AttorneyOn Monday, February 13, 2017, a 13-year-old girl was hospitalized after a train ride at a Riverside amusement center located on Valley Springs Parkway malfunctioned.

Kayla Simpson and six other children were riding the “Incredible Express” inside John’s Incredible Pizza when the ride abruptly came to a stop. The sudden halt caused Simpson and the other riders to slam their faces into the train. The children suffered bruising, bleeding and other minor injuries. Immediately after the malfunction, the operator of the ride left to inform management.

Simpson was taken to the hospital before she was discharged. The other children suffered bleeding and bruising.

According to the Riverside Fire Department, the malfunction was caused by one of the wheels disassembling from the train. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health investigated the scene of the accident for further details. Cal/OSHA reported that the “Incredible Express” missed its mandatory inspection on November 2nd.

What To Do After an Amusement Park Accident

Amusement parks are supposed to be fun. Unfortunately, this may not always be the case. Even the smallest accidents on an amusement park ride can significantly impact your life and the lives of your loved ones.

The initial steps you take immediately after an amusement park accident is very important. As such, it is best to always be prepared ahead of time for such devastating accidents. Our experienced Riverside amusement park accident attorneys recommend victims to consider the following steps after such an accident:

  • Move to a safe location.
  • Get immediate medical attention, even if your injuries seem minor.
  • File an incident report.
  • Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you obtain the full potential of your claim for the injuries you have suffered.

Filing a personal injury claim will not undo the horrific accident or make your injuries go away. However, it will help you get the financial help you and your loved ones need to pay for your expensive medical treatments.
