Trampolining is enormous fun. Since larger trampolines with net enclosures have become available for purchase to have in gardens, more and more children and adults are discovering how much fun it can be to have access to one.
Of course, trampolining does not come without risk. If you ensure the trampoline is constructed and put together properly and according to the instructions, there should be no problem. This might be fine at home, but if you use a trampoline anywhere else you will have to trust the people in charge have constructed and maintained it in the proper manner.
How might trampolining accidents happen?
The most obvious accident may occur if there is no safety netting put up around the trampoline itself. It is then very easy to lose your place and end up falling off the trampoline. It is also easy to hit your head or some other part of your body as you hit the ground.
Obviously you must be very careful when using trampolines and take every care and precaution you can to stay safe. If you fail to use it properly as you have been instructed and you are hurt as a result, this would be your own fault and you would not be entitled to claim trampolining accident compensation. However, if the trampoline collapsed or was proven to have been poorly-maintained or had the wrong parts used during its construction, this would give you a chance to make a claim.
