    Top 3 injuries when using a pogo stick

    Have you or your child sustained injuries when using a pogo stick? These sticks can be more dangerous than you might think, and many people have suffered injuries due to manufacturing faults. People can become injured when they slip off pogo sticks and when tips become undone, which can result in the sticks slipping away. Let’s take a look at some of the injuries that can be sustained due to pogo sticks.

    The most common pogo stick injuries

    Knee injuries may occur when users bounce high up in the air and bail. Bails can also cause wrist and elbow injuries, and even head injuries can occur, which is why it’s advisable to wear a helmet when using a pogo stick. If your child does come to harm when using a pogo stick, it’s wise to see a medical professional as soon as you can to have them checked over.

    Though great care normally goes into manufacturing pogo sticks, accidents can still happen when faults are evident. So-called “super-pogos” allow users to jump higher than conventional sticks and are more dangerous than their traditional counterparts, creating big opportunities for users to bang their heads. Many pogo sticks have been recalled in the past due to the manufacturing faults such as frames breaking or coming apart too easily. Injuries when using a pogo stick can also occur if springs break, which can leave users writhing on the floor in agony.

We have vast experience when it comes to helping parents get compensation for injuries their children have sustained, and we will collaborate with you to collect as much evidence as we need to make your case successful.
