Injuries Are Becoming More Common From Inflatable Structures And Trampolines
Inflatable structures and trampolines are common additions to birthdays, summer holidays and church festivities. Inflatable bounce houses and slides are becoming especially popular at children’s parties. Kids love them but parents often worry for their child’s safety. Increasing news coverage on inflatable toy injuries shows that parents have something to be concerned about.
According to the latest data by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 113,272 people were treated for emergency injuries related to inflatables from 2003 to 2013, and the numbers continue to compile faster than ever. Inflatable castles, known as bounce houses or moon bounces, attribute to 90 percent of these injuries.
Was Your Child’s Injury Preventable?
If your child was injured while playing on an inflatable structure or a trampoline, then medical costs and lasting pain can be overwhelming. You do not need to carry these burdens alone. You may be able to seek compensation if your child was injured due to any of the following issues:
- A design or manufacturing defect
- Unsafe conditions due to negligent property owners
- Improper installation or operation
- A lack of education for renters and operators by equipment owners
There have been a number of cases where bounce houses were improperly installed, causing winds to sweep the inflatable structures away, resulting in injuries. In a recent case, a boy was carried away by winds in an inflatable bounce house, ending up on a dangerous highway.
