In a ten year period, there were over 100,000 bounce house or “inflatable amusement” related injuries, according to a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The report showed an increase in the number of injuries every year. Most of those injuries were from commercial rides, with less than half as a result of injuries sustained from bounce houses being used at home. Most of the injuries involved children between the ages of 0 to 14, this being the age group at highest risk for injury. The dominant injuries were to the legs and arms, in the form of sprains, breaks, fractures, scrapes, bruises, or cuts from falling. For individuals who have experienced a personal injury from a bounce house or other inflatable amusement, the best-case scenario is for a scrape or bruise, and the worst death.

A bounce house or inflatable amusement related injury can occur as a result of something as simple as a fall or from something more serious such as negligence. According to an article in USA Today, “Most injuries occur because operators are careless during setup, children are not supervised, and guidelines for safe play are not followed.” While there are laws and regulations in place regarding bounce houses, those deal primarily with insurance and inspection matters and woefully lack regulations for operators and proper bounce house operational procedures.Common examples of operator negligence include:
- Failure to stake down a bounce house to ensure it does not blow away or overturn;
- Using a bounce house that is in some way damaged, ripped, or otherwise defective;
- Failure to establish a perimeter, such as a fence, around the inflatable amusement, so as to keep unsupervised children from using it; and
- Operating a bounce house without awareness of proper safety protocols and guidelines.
