Although trampolining was once reserved for sports clubs and leisure centres, it’s now a popular sport and pastime for many people. With many smaller trampolines being sold for home use, many children and adults have opted to purchase one.
Whilst trampolining can obviously be fun for children, it can also be a great way for both children and adults to keep fit. Although many people can find traditional exercise somewhat mundane, many people enjoy trying out different sports, such as trampolining. In addition to this, the fact that many people can store a trampoline in their garden means that they don’t have to pay costly gym memberships or travel far to workout.
Although most trampolines which are sold for home use do come with some safety features, these aren’t always enough to prevent injuries from occurring. For example, many home-use trampolines come with nets which are designed to go around the perimeter of the trampoline and prevent anyone from falling off.
However, these nets aren’t always strong and if they aren’t affixed properly, you could find that someone could slip through the gap relatively easily. For safety reasons, it’s extremely important that you follow the instructions properly when you’re setting the trampoline up as it could help to prevent injuries and accidents from occurring.
Unfortunately, however carefully you set the item up, it won’t prevent injuries if there is an inherent fault with the item. If, for example, the legs aren’t as strong as they should be, the trampoline could buckle when it’s in use and people could be hurt as a result. Similarly, if the rubber hasn’t been treated properly or it’s been kept improperly, it may crack or even split which could obviously be dangerous if people tried to jump on it.
If you notice a fault with the trampoline, you’ll probably want to return it straightway. However, if you don’t realise that anything is wrong, you could use the item and suffer an injury as a result. If you are hurt because of it, injury solicitors in Walsall should be able to help you claim compensation from the manufacturers.
