New York City is perhaps the world's most desirable tourist destination. As such, the theme and amusement parks within the city confines -- such as those at Coney Island and in Times
Square -- as well as those within close driving distance in Atlantic City, at Foxwoods Casino, and at Mohegan Sun, present a very real danger when mishaps occur.
Not only is there an abundance of amusement parks and temporary rides at state- and city-run fairs and festivals right here in New York, but we are only a short car ride away from a myriad of others in neighboring states.
While these wildly popular destinations annually provide millions upon millions of visitors with memories they most likely will treasure for a lifetime, accidents do occasionally occur on roller-coasters, bumper cars, rock-climbing walls, and other such attractions, that result in serious injuries and possibly even death.
