Rochester, New York Trampoline AccidentIn recent years, with the emergence of indoor trampoline parks and home trampolines, trampolining has rapidly become one of America’s favorite pastimes. While jumping on trampolines is a fun activity for children and adults alike, trampolines can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. In a recent year alone, there were roughly 103,000 emergency room visits due to injuries sustained in trampoline-related accidents. Children under 16 years old account for over 90 percent of all trampoline injuries. While 30 to 50 percent of injuries suffered are to the lower extremities, damages sustained to the upper extremities are most prevalent when victims fall off. Additionally, cervical spine injuries are often associated with flips and somersaults.

It is hardly surprising that the American Association of Pediatrics labeled trampolines unsafe for children. Victims of tragic trampoline mishaps can quickly find themselves with unexpected hospital bills, lost wages from missed work, loss of quality of life, and countless other hardships.

Common Injuries Sustained in Trampoline Accidents

Rochester, New York Trampoline AccidentMost trampoline injuries are caused by landing improperly. Another common element in trampoline accidents is multiple users simultaneously jumping, which can result in users colliding with each other in midair or on the mat. When this occurs, victims can hit the frame or even get knocked off of the trampoline. Lastly, accidents often take place when people jump the wrong way or try performing stunts. While trampoline accidents range in severity from small scratches to quadriplegia, even minor wounds can result in demoralizing physical, emotional, and financial damages. The most common injuries suffered by trampoline jumpers include the following:

  1. Ankle injuries;
  2. Sprains and ruptures;
  3. Broken bones and fractures;
  4. Traumatic brain injuries, including severe concussions and blunt-force head trauma;
  5. Neck and spinal cord injuries, such as paralysis;
  6. Cuts, scrapes, and bruises;
  7. Dislocated joints;
  8. Craniofacial injuries;
  9. Internal organ damage and bleeding; and
  10. Wrongful death.



Who Should Be Held Liable for Your Trampoline Injury?

Trampolines can be a lot of fun until someone suffers a severe injury. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in a recent year alone, there were over 295,000 medically treated trampoline-related injuries. Similar to swimming pools, home trampolines are considered attractive nuisances that are capable of alluring children into potentially treacherous situations. Consequently, most homeowner insurance policies contain trampoline exclusions or mandate trampolines to be in fenced areas with restricted access. Trampoline owners are responsible for implementing all necessary precautions, enforcing safety rules, supervising children, and properly maintaining equipment. When an owner fails to live up to his or her expectations, serious injuries can easily happen. To determine who is at fault for your trampoline injuries, it is crucial to consider exactly how the accident happened. For example, if a leg on the trampoline snaps due to excessive rust and you break your ankle, the owner would be responsible for failing to maintain their equipment. On the other hand, if the mat rips and causes injury, the trampoline manufacturer may be held liable. Finally, if you got hurt because another user pushed you off the trampoline, that individual could be considered negligent. In some cases, liability is not always so clear, and more than one party could be held responsible.
