In recent years, zip lines have increased in popularity. Now, they can be found at amusement parks, carnivals, fairs, and a variety of touristy destinations. Although zip lining can be an exciting outdoor activity, it can also lead to serious accidents and injuries that leave victims with physical and emotional pain, costly medical bills, and lost wages.

Types of Zip Line Accidents & The Injuries They Cause

There are a variety of zip line accidents that may occur due to faulty equipment, poor supervision, inadequately trained staff members, or a flawed course design. At Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., the majority of zip line accidents we handle involve:

  • Falls from a platform
  • The failure of safety harnesses or breaking mechanisms
  • Collisions with objects or other riders
  • Hands caught in the gears

Victims of zip line accidents often suffer from serious, life-altering injuries such as traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, torn tendons and ligaments, sprained ankles, and ripped muscles. In some cases, a victim may even lose their life.

Who Can Be Held Liable for A Zip Line Injury?

If a zip line owner or operator failed to provide helmets, harnesses, and other safety equipment; did not adequately train their staff or customers; failed to ensure the zip line tower and ladder are secure; or allowed customers to zip line on a hazardous course, they may be held liable for their negligence. In the event that faulty equipment caused the accident, the manufacturers could be responsible.
