Trampoline Injury Lawyer

Trampolines are a long-time popular piece of backyard equipment. Kids and adults of all ages love bouncing around on trampolines. There are even entire parks with built-in trampolines along the floors such as Skyzone Trampoline Park and Sky High Sports. But, this playful apparatus offers many risks. Whether you are having fun on a backyard trampoline or in a trampoline park, you can encounter harm. 

Our law firm is currently handling lawsuits on behalf of individuals who suffered trampoline injuries. 

Who is Responsible for Trampoline Injuries? 

You can soar through the air, reach great heights, and perform neat aerobatic tricks while on a trampoline. Despite all these fun features, trampoline accidents can occur in several ways. 

A mistake in the design or during the manufacturing process may account for trampoline injuries. A faulty trampoline design dooms the product even before it reaches the manufacturer. A flawed design will inevitably produce an unsound trampoline. Yet, if the company creates a solid trampoline design, a manufacturing error can result in an unsafe trampoline. For example, if the manufacturer used cheap steel for the legs or springs, they are accountable for the trampoline issues. 

When someone puts a trampoline on their property and permits other people to use it, the owner may be responsible for accidents. Trampolines degrade over time, and users can hurt themselves on unstable rusty trampolines. Also, if the owner situates the trampoline in an unsafe location, directly beneath a tree or near concrete, they may put visitors at risk. 

Thousands of people visit trampoline parks and consider them a great source of family entertainment. Children, teens, and adults love to experience the thrill of these parks. But failure to enforce rules or a lack of supervision can harm trampoline park guests. Many people jump around in trampoline parks at the same time. Without proper adult supervision, many jumpers can crash into one another. Or jumpers may engage in dangerous maneuvers if workers are not watching. Also, poor padding, shallow pits, and inept placement can all result in trampoline injuries at trampoline parks. 

Trampoline Injuries 

High-risk moves like somersaults or backflips can cause serious harm. Multiple jumpers can land on top of each other or slam into one another on trampolines. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Committee recorded more than 300,000 trampoline injuries in 2018. Over 110,000 visited the emergency room because of their injuries. Trampoline injuries include, but are not limited to: 

  • Fractures
  • Broken neck
  • Broken back
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Brain injuries
  • Dislocation 
  • Paralysis
  • Death 

Trampoline Injury Lawsuits 

Countless individuals have filed lawsuits for injuries sustained in backyard trampolines or trampoline parks. Lawsuits against trampoline parks allege that the parks are hazardously structured and lack supervision and guidelines. While trampoline parks usually require guests to sign waivers, these waivers cannot always prevent victims from filing lawsuits. In 2020, a man received a $1.25 million settlement after he broke his legs at a trampoline park in New Jersey. Additionally, many people have filed lawsuits against the trampoline park chain, Sky Zone. 

Do I Qualify for a Trampoline Injury Lawsuit? 

If you or a loved one were injured due to a trampoline incident, you may qualify for a trampoline injury lawsuit. A trampoline injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for: 

  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Past and future pain and suffering;
  • Loss of wages; and 
  • Other economic losses related to your injury 

Trampoline injuries are rising alongside trampoline popularity. In the United States, trampoline sales exceed 500,000 units annually. The trampoline park industry also continues to grow. Researchers estimate there are over 600 trampoline parks in the United States today. With this incline, trampoline injuries will likely increase as well.
