Man Sues Water Park for an Employee's Failure to Inform Him of Dangerous Slide Conditions

Man Sues Water Park for an Employee's Failure to Inform Him of Dangerous Slide Conditions

On June 21, a Harris County man was injured at Galveston Island Water Park. The man was waiting to go down a water slide when an employee told him he was clear to enter the water slide. At that moment, the man collided with another person who was also going down the ride. Due to the employee’s negligence, the man suffered injuries to the head, neck, and other body parts.

The man filed a complaint against Schlitterbahn Beach Resort Management, LLC and Galveston Island Water Part, L.P. on August 16 alleging negligence, stating that the defendant should be held responsible for the employee’s failure to inform him of the unsafe conditions.

Currently, Galveston personal injury attorneys from The Daspit Law Firm are representing the man. The lawyers include John A. Daspit, Robert Morse, and Steve Stratso. As of now, our client is seeking financial compensation for medical expenses, physical pains, mental anguish, physical impairment, and lost wages and seeks additional monetary damages between $200,000 and $1 million.

How Premises Liability Plays a Role in These Types of Cases

In waterparks and other amusement parks, property and business owners are responsible for maintaining safe property conditions to ensure the protection of guests. In such places, guests are considered invitees.

An invitee is a person who does not have a contractual relation to the property owner but is permitted on the premises. Therefore, the conditions of the property and equipment must be monitored as to not cause harm to any invitees. With this being said, property owners can be held liable for a guest’s injuries if:

  1. A condition on the premise posed an unreasonable hazard of harm or injury
  2. The property owner knew or should have known of the danger
  3. The property owner breached its duty of ordinary care to protect guests from danger by failing to inform guests of unsafe conditions
  4. The property owner fails to make conditions and equipment reasonably safe
  5. The breach causes harm to a guest
