In the 10-year period ending in 2011, more than 1 million people sought treatment from an emergency room care provider for injuries sustained in trampoline accidents. Trampolines are tons of fun and are almost a rite of passage in childhood and beyond, but they are inherently dangerous—so much so that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents avoid letting their children use them at all. Trampolines can cause a slew of injuries, from strains and sprains to contusions and broken bones; they can also lead to more serious injuries, including spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and permanent neurological damage. If you or your child experienced a trampoline injury, our trampoline injury attorney can help you hold any at-fault party responsible for their role in your accident. Contact us right away following the incident to review your case.
In case you’re not convinced about the dangers of trampolines, the following statistics speak for themselves:
If the court determines that a third party is at fault for your or your child’s trampoline injury, you may be entitled to damages. The monetary compensation you might receive may include reimbursement for any medical bills, hospital bills, emergency room bills, medications, or physical therapy required as a direct result of the trampoline injury. If you’re the one who suffered an injury while jumping on a trampoline, you may also receive compensation for lost wages as well as future loss of wages, if you’re unable to work due to your accident. You may also be entitled to some compensation for any emotional distress, although Utah does put a cap on the amount you may receive for emotional trauma.
