Las Vegas accident attorneys are seldom surprised when they see an increase in cases involving injuries associated with outdoor activities at area lakes, swimming pools and waterparks during the summer months.
According to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, the waterpark industry as a whole has an excellent track record when it comes to providing a safe place for people of all ages to play around and in the water. This high level of safety requires the efforts of guests as well as those of the waterpark operators.
The experienced accident lawyers at Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez offer these tips for keeping your family safe at the waterpark:
- Avoid overexposure to the sun to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion and sunburn. All swimmers should wear a hat to protect the eyes and face. Have a t-shirt handy to cover the shoulders and back. Water shoes protect the feet from sharp objects and splinters.
- Purchase a Coast Guard approved life jacket for all children less than 48″ tall, weak swimmers and anyone who does not know how to swim.
- Do not allow children to run or roughhouse inside the park. Unruly behavior puts the participants as well as other guests at risk. If you witness such behavior, report it immediately to a park lifeguard or some other employee.
