Indoor trampoline parks have become increasingly popular in recent years, however, many families are discovering the potential dangers that exist. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, as a whole, there were an estimated 104,691 emergency room-treated injuries associated with trampolines in 2014 alone.
Most trampoline parks require parents to sign liability waivers before their children are allowed to participate, but these waivers are not always enforceable. State laws can vary, particularly for jumpers under 18. If you or your child was severely injured or killed in a trampoline park accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Serious Injuries Caused by Trampoline Park Accidents
When the staff does not properly supervise trampoline park visitors, or equipment is not inspected, maintained, or manufactured correctly, serious injuries can occur. Injuries may include:
- Bone fractures, breaks, or dislocations
- Spinal injury
- Brain injury
- Ligament injury
These injuries can happen in any number of different circumstances, but common scenarios include:
- Falling or jumping off the trampoline
- Colliding with another person while jumping
- Landing on the trampoline springs or frame
- Equipment failure
Many trampoline injuries may be caused by the negligence of another person and could have been prevented.
