If there was even the slightest possibility that there was a chance this was equipment malfunctioning, there is no way at all that the park would accept full liability, no matter how horrific the injuries. As i said before there can be no other option than human error at play here. From a business standpoint, something which i am very qualified to talk about, being A, a graduate of many years of academic study in business and business management, and B, a business owner myself. You do not admit liability unless there is no doubt you are to blame.
If this was a failure of sensors, or of the systems provided to them by the manufacturer of the ride. It would be in the parks best interest to not admit liability.
If i sold somebody a product or provided somebody a service that caused them injury, and it was not known whether the fault was mine, or the people who i had purchased that product or service from initially, i can't admit liability, as i have to be sure that i either am, or am not to blame.
If i am to blame, i am going to admit liability and the buck stops with me.
If i am not to blame, then the liability lies with the manufacturer.
If it is unsure, then i work with the manufacturer to come to an agreement as to whether one or both of us are to blame.
If liability is admitted and it is not mine to admit, the manufacturer are in the clear.
Think about it logically, if any device provided by Gerstlauer was to blame, now the park have admitted full liability, Gerstlauer will not be chased for damages.
