Trampolines are great fun for all ages, and you’ll find a variety of trampolining centres across the UK where children and adults can pay to spend an hour or two bouncing around. However, be careful – you could suffer a serious back injury on a trampoline or even be left permanently disabled if things go wrong. The most important thing to ask yourself after an accident like this is, “Who’s to blame?” If the answer is somebody else, then Accident Advice Helpline could help you to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
How did you suffer a back injury on a trampoline?
Back, spinal and neck injuries are amongst the most common types of trampoline injuries, so if you’ve suffered a back injury on a trampoline, you’re not alone. Bouncing high in the air and landing awkwardly could cause an injury – it may be that the trampoline was not set up properly and you have bounced and been flung off, landing on solid ground. Or perhaps the trampoline you were using broke and you fell through it and injured your back or spine. You’ll probably need to have a scan or x-ray to determine how serious your injuries are and you may need surgery or other medical treatment to recover.
In serious cases of spinal injury, you may be left permanently paralysed and unable to walk. Whilst this is rare, it can and does happen, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you get compensation if this has happened to you or a member of your family.
How much compensation could I get?
The good news is that you can make a 100% no-win, no-fee claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline after your accident. We can’t say for sure how much your settlement could be for a back injury, as we handle each claim on an individual basis. But you will receive compensation according to the severity of your injuries – so somebody with a life-changing injury can expect to receive more compensation than somebody who has suffered a herniated disc or lower back strain.
To find out today if you could make a claim, just call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to get advice from our team of expert advisors.
