When you think of trampolines, you know there are dangers. Even if you had fun on trampolines as a kid, we are willing to bet you know someone who got injured on one.
Did you know that trampoline-related injuries are responsible for around 92,000 hospital visits a year? Those are just the injured who go to the hospital. We have no way of knowing how many more injuries are treated at a doctor’s office or another healthcare facility.
Many parents get their kids trampolines without thinking about the harm they can cause. Worse, they do not think about what will happen if their child’s friends get hurt on the trampoline. The American Academy of Pediatrics thinks trampolines are so dangerous that they have recommended that parents never get one for their homes or allow their kids to use them at other people’s homes.
The most common injuries that happen due to trampoline incidents are bone fractures and sprains. However, we know that much more severe injuries also occur, including spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and internal organ damage.
We also know that trampoline parks are becoming more common and popular. These are essentially large buildings filled with trampolines. Touted as safe but their operators, we know that these facilities can lead to major injuries. These cases can become premises liability cases, and if an injury occurs, we will want to look into whether the facility properly inspected their equipment, whether their staff was doing their job properly, and whether or not patrons were properly warned of the risks.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a trampoline incident and you believe another person’s negligence is to blame, please seek legal assistance now. We realize that this is an emotional time for you. At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, you can count on a compassionate team being by your side as we work to secure the compensation you need right now.
