    How do people get hurt at trampoline parks?

    Trampoline parks are often a great option for parents when entertaining their children for the day, and children of all ages often enjoy bouncing up and down and throwing themselves around. Many parks often have a café attached which means that the parents can get a cup of coffee, and maybe the whole family can sit down and have a little bite to eat too. But as a cautious parent, you may be asking if it is possible for children to get hurt at trampoline parks.

    The short answer to this question is yes. People, and especially children, can certainly be hurt trampoline parks, and here are the most common causes:

    • Falling awkwardly
    • Crashing into other users
    • Falling on exposed framework or springs
    • Falling off the trampoline entirely

    Reasons why people get hurt at trampoline parks

    Trampoline parks can have anything from three or four trampolines to a large hall full of 20 or 30. This means that there could be anything up to a hundred children running, jumping and bouncing around at any one time. Needless to say, such a frenzy of activity can result in children being hurt at trampoline parks and suffering various injuries.

    Accidents happen, but what if they happen because of negligence? Whoever is responsible for safety at the trampoline park must ensure that the trampolines are both laid out and installed in a secure and safe fashion. There should be no exposed framework or fittings such as springs and hooks for children to fall onto, and should they fall off the trampoline entirely, there must be soft flooring to absorb the impact and prevent potentially serious injuries.

    Was one of your children hurt at a trampoline park?

    As we have discussed, there is an onus on the management of every single trampoline park to make sure everyone is as safe as possible. Fully-trained staff must be on hand to keep everything in order and make sure all of the equipment is functioning properly. If the management fails to do this, and one or more of your children suffered an injury, you may be able to make a compensation claim.
