Layton Trampoline Accident Lawyer

Jumping on a trampoline is loads of fun—until it’s not. Trampoline accident claims are at an all-time high, due largely to the uptick of trampoline parks where large numbers of jumpers jump on huge trampolines together. Trampolines in the backyards of homeowners are also more common, due in part to the price drop on these popular recreational toys. And while they can be fun and provide a good spot for kids to work out their excess energy, they can also cause significant injuries—deaths, even—when they are used improperly or when children aren’t properly supervised. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics went so far as to warn parents to keep kids off trampolines all together—at home and in parks—because they are so very dangerous. If your child has been seriously injured on a trampoline, you may be able to collect compensation for your losses. Contact our trampoline accident attorney to discuss your case details now.
