The owners of waterparks and other extreme sports facilities in Florida and other states are responsible for the safety of patrons. This applies even when they have signed forms to release liability. Any negligence by such a person might lead to a wrongful death or personal injury claim. In fact, it might even give rise to criminal charges.

Many people were injured and at least four died when the massive concrete slabs and steel crashed onto the cars below. In the aftermath, personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits will likely follow.

He was arrested on manslaughter charges on a recent Wednesday afternoon, and he might also have to face a wrongful death claim in a civil court.
