What Can Happen Here?

You have probably seen what trampoline parks look like. Nearly every square inch of a large room is covered with various trampolines of various sizes. There are ads everywhere for when kids miss the mark and fall. Looking in, they seem safe. However, an analysis of the injuries at local parks shows just how much of a problem they can be.
Some common injuries include:

  • Knee injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Broken arms
  • Broken legs
  • Dislocated knees

One woman says that her 4-year-old broke his leg at a trampoline park and was left in a cast from his hip to his toes. “I don’t want to see any other child go through what my child went through,” she said. Her family has filed a lawsuit against the park. The attorney handling the lawsuit points out that these cases can be complicated.

  • Most people sign waivers before using the facility that acknowledges that they understand there are risks involved.

However, signing a waiver does not mean that a trampoline park owner is absolved of all responsibility, especially if injuries are caused by something the property owner did or not do.

  • Was the lighting adequate?
  • Was there enough staff on hand to monitor the room?
  • When was the equipment last inspected?
  • Did staff properly warn patrons of the risks?

These are just some of the questions that will be examined when determining whether or not property owners can be held liable for injuries.

Injuries like the ones listed above can become expensive to treat and they can cause emotional and psychological damage, especially for children who experience them.
