Wilmington Addresses Ride Safety After Accidents at the N.C. State Fair

By: The Richard Flexner Law Offices

In October, a serious accident at the North Carolina State Fair left five customers injured and resulted in an amusement operator facing criminal charges. There were some reported concerns that worries about ride safety would depress attendance at the Cape Fear Fair and Expo to be held at the beginning of November at the Wilmington International Airport, but local officials indicated that they did not expect reduced attendance because of the accident. ferris-wheel-at-night-1432593-m

Any premises liability attorney in Wilmington, NC knows that amusement park rides and rides at fairs can be dangerous if the fair operator doesn’t take precautions to ensure safety. Fair organizers are not only expected to ensure that rides meet minimum safety standards and won’t put others at risk but also need to have sufficient security for the fair so that people are safe and so that there is less risk of injury caused by violence. The fair organizers in Wilmington were aware of the issues that the public might have with coming to the fair in light of recent events and were taking steps to help make the public safer and more comfortable at the event.
