Summer kicks off in Los Angeles with the annual county fair, offering guests a fun-filled day packed with exciting attractions. However, fairs come with their own risks, and injuries can happen when least expected. At Fielding Law, we are here to guide you if you encounter an unexpected injury, ensuring you receive the support and compensation you deserve.

Fair Injuries Are Nothing New

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that over 4,400 children are injured annually on carnival rides. This does not account for the numerous adults who suffer injuries on fair rides. Often designed to be portable and transported like luggage, fair rides tend to pose a higher risk of injury due to their temporary nature.

Common Injuries

The LA County Fair is a highly anticipated event, but it presents numerous opportunities for accidents. Common injuries at the fair include slips and falls, which can occur due to wet or uneven surfaces and unkempt debris in the walkways. More serious incidents can involve carnival rides, where malfunctions or improper use can lead to injuries. Food stalls also have potential risks, including burns and foodborne illnesses from improperly handled or prepared food. If you have been injured at the LA County Fair, call Fielding Law for a free consultation.

Steps to Take if You Are Injured at the LA County Fair

  1. Seek medical attention
    Your health and well-being are the top priority. Immediately seek medical care for your injuries by either calling 911 or visiting the on-site first aid station.
  1. Report the incident
    It is crucial to document your injuries to solidify your case. Since this may involve a public entity claim, such as the LA County Fair, reporting the incident promptly is essential due to potential statute of limitations restrictions. Report your injuries to fair officials and fill out an incident report form, if available.
  1. Document the injury
