Thousands of injuries occur on trampolines each year, and many of them happen despite safety nets, padding, and parental supervision. Injuries often occur because children collide, land the wrong way, or attempt stunts on a trampoline. Common trampoline injuries include sprains and strains, broken bones, neck injuries, and head injuries or concussions. Some injuries could require surgery or lead to permanent disability. Due to the significant risk of injury to children, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that trampolines only be used in supervised sports training programs, such as gymnastics, not for private recreation.
If your child was injured on a backyard trampoline, the trampoline owner’s homeowner’s insurance company may be liable for his or her medical expenses and pain and suffering.
