Suit Initiated over Amusement Park Rides

The California Supreme Court will decide a case involving an amusement park and injuries sustained by a female patron of the park. The accident occurred at the Great American amusement park in California. The plaintiff broke her wrist while riding bumper carts at the park. The court is expected to decide if amusement parks can be held liable for injuries sustained at the park. Cedar Fair, L.P. has asked the court to extend protections given to inherently dangerous activities to include amusement parks. Plaintiff's counsel has argued that the court should allow recovering in an effort to make the parks as safe as possible. Previously, the court ruled that amusement parks have a duty to make roller coasters as safe as possible, but there is some discrepancy whether bumper carts should be held in the same regard as roller coasters.
