Trampoline Accident Lawyers

Trampoline Injuries There are more than 1 million trampolines in use in homes and recreational facilities across America.

Unfortunately, compared with other types of children’s toys, the rate of trampoline-related injury is significantly higher when evaluated on a time-use basis.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC appreciates the dangers a trampoline poses to both children and adults.

Our Chicago, Illinois trampoline accident attorneys have successfully recovered substantial recoveries for people injured on trampolines at the home of a friend or trampoline parks.

The Most Dangerous Part of the Home?

The number of children sustaining an injury on a trampoline has been increasing every year over the past decade.

In 2014, trampoline-related injuries accounted for almost 100,000 trips to the emergency room.

Children under 15 years old made up the largest contingent, accounting for 82% of the injuries.

Many trampoline injuries are attributable to:

  • Too many people using a trampoline at one time and colliding with one another
  • Improperly assembled trampolines
  • Missing protective devices
  • Falling from the trampoline platform
  • Lack of instruction or supervision

Fractures accounted for almost 50% of the injuries on trampolines. Most concerning is the fact that 12% of the injuries were related to the spinal cord, where a person who sustains a disabling injury may permanently lose the complete or partial use of their arms or legs (quadriplegia or paraplegia).

Tips To Improve Trampoline Safety

To minimize the chance of injury, experts suggest the following:

  • Use only with adult supervision.
  • Only allow one person on the trampoline at a time.
  • Never allow children under six years old to use the trampoline.
  • Jump in the center of the trampoline — only.
  • Only use the trampoline for jumps — don’t do any flips, splits or somersaults.
  • Keep a fence around the trampoline to prevent children from accessing the trampoline without adult supervision.
  • Repair or discard the trampoline when parts become corroded or are missing.

Legal Claims for Injuries Sustained on Trampolines in Chicago, Illinois

Many trampoline injuries occur at a friend’s home, camp or recreational facility covered under a liability insurance policy to cover related medical expenses and resulting disability.

Should your child sustain an injury on a trampoline, you likely will have questions about the responsibility of the property owner and will likely be covered under their homeowner's insurance policy. In the case of an accident at a business or other entity, the general liability policy may cover the incident.

Talk with Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC before you discuss the incident with any representative from an insurance company to ensure that your legal rights aren’t compromised.

What Type of Damages Can a Person Recover for an Illinois Trampoline Accident Injury?

When a trampoline park or homeowner’s negligence is responsible for causing an injury on a trampoline or other recreational equipment, the injured party may present a claim against the insurer or file a lawsuit in court for both their (or their child’s) economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages would be any monetary expense related to their medical care or lost wages sustained in the past, or they will reasonably incur in the future.

Non-economic damages refer to intangible losses such as pain, disfigurement and the inability to do particularly enjoyable tasks. 

Examples of recoverable damages in a trampoline injury case include:

  • Medical expenses for past and future care
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of normal life

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
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. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
