Every southern California injury attorney has seen injuries that resulted from recreational activities gone wrong. Southern California is one of the world’s most beloved tourist spots, featuring amusement parks, ocean getaways, and other natural sites – but certain activities carry an increased risk of injury.
Two recent accidents involving hot air balloon rides underscore the need to practice safety when enjoying recreational events. The first, according to a report from KESQ, involved a family taking a hot air balloon ride in Palm Desert, California. The balloon crash-landed near the end of the ride, shaking up those in the basket and causing minor injuries to several people, all of whom are expected to recover.
