Articles Tagged with child injured on trampoline

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?

Can Trampolines Really Be Made Safer?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?

Trampoline Injuries

Common dangers going ignored

Without a second thought, many parents will drag out trampolines of all types into use for their children to jump, flop and somersault on during the summer.

  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
