Trampolines are well known for being both very fun and very dangerous. While most people don’t injure themselves while jumping on a trampoline, the margin for error is small. Trampoline accidents include jumping off the side to faulty springs and falling through the trampoline itself which has serious consequences for the person jumping on the trampoline.

We have over 16 years of experience as personal injury claims specialists and are well equipped to handle your claim.
Most common trampoline accidents
- Falling over the side due to imbalance: When setting up a garden trampoline it is important for it to be placed on a flat, balanced piece of ground. When jumping on trampolines you get launched into the air. As much fun as this can be it’s also very dangerous. Losing balance can mean bouncing off the edge, which can cause concussions or broken bones.
- Faulty springs. If you are jumping on a trampoline and the springs break either due to a manufacturer’s error or because of wear, you run the risk of serious injury and this places your life at risk.
- Weak material. People have been known to fall through the middle of trampolines and break bones due to the use of weak materials by a manufacturer which constitutes negligence.
These common trampoline accidents are not always the fault of the person using them. If you have suffered as a result of negligence or someone else, call now.
What makes me eligible to claim for compensation after an accident?
If your injury has taken place due to faulty products or was someone else’s fault you can claim for personal injury compensation. Furthermore, the accident needs to have occurred in the last three years and you need to have sought medical attention in the aftermath if your claim is to be successful.
