As a Chicago personal injury lawyer, I everyday seems to remind me that back and neck injuries are indeed serious injuries that can result in permanent disability, paralysis, or even death.  Back and injuries can involve the bone, muscle, or soft tissue.  Common injuries include strains and sprains, fractured vertebrae, sciatica, and herniated disks.

The most common location for back injuries and back pain is the lower back because the lower back supports your body weight.  80% of people will experience low back pain at some point in their lives.  Common causes of back and neck injuries include trauma (falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports, birth injury), arthritis, cancer, degenerative conditions, and surgical injury.

As a Chicago personal injury lawyer, I see firsthand the atrocities associated with trampoline usage.  It seems no matter how many times families are presented with statistics about scary trampoline injuries, many parents are simply unwilling to take a trampoline out of their backyard.  So the question remains, if we can’t convince people to remove trampolines, should we simply advocate a safer product?

What child has not at one point or another begged their parents for a trampoline? And who can blame them? If jumping on a bed is fun, jumping on a spring-loaded device made to propel you in the air and bounce you back up again is a riot. Unfortunately, the injury statistics for trampolines over the last few decades have also proved that it is also extremely unsafe. Strides have been made to make the trampoline safer for home use, but have these attempts been successful?

For the second year, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers is happy to sponsor an community outreach event for children on Chicago’s Southwest-side.  The event is organized by Help-in-hands, an organization devoted to improving the communities for children. Last year was such a blast, that we brought back the pony rides!

Be sure sure to check out the fun this year!

In case you missed it, take a look at our photos from the event last year from our Child Injury Laws blog.
