Trampoline Park Injuries Are On The Rise
Trampoline parks such as Sky Zone, Next Gen, and Urban Air have risen in popularity throughout western North Carolina recently, especially for birthday parties and other special events. Unfortunately, injuries have risen with the popularity of these trampoline parks. Many of the injuries, such as sprained ankles and wrists and knee injuries, are common. More serious traumatic injuries, however, are also possible. Participants have suffered spinal cord and brain injuries, as well as broken bones.
If you or your child was seriously injured at a trampoline park, contact Davis Law Group to find out if you have a personal injury case. Our attorneys have decades of personal injury experience. We will carefully walk through your situation with you to determine if you have a premises liability case against the facility.
The Problems With Liability Waivers
You may be thinking, “But I signed a liability waiver. How can I sue?” Liability waivers are one way these facilities try to avoid responsibility for injuries on their property, but they do not completely remove all responsibility from the property owners. If the injury was caused by the gross negligence or recklessness of the trampoline park, the waiver of liability should not prevent you from pursuing a personal injury claim.
Our skilled lawyers will review the facts of your case to see whether the elements of a premises liability case exist. The basic elements include:
- A dangerous condition existed and the property owner knew about it.
- The owner did not repair or fix that condition in a reasonable manner.
- Your injury resulted from the lack of repairs.
A liability waiver does not excuse the facility from creating a safe environment. It simply means that the unsafe condition went beyond the general use of a trampoline that the facility properly set up, maintained and supervised. Such facilities still must:
- Properly set up the equipment in a safe manner that encourages safe use
- Maintain the equipment as needed
- Properly instruct and supervise users and enforce safety rules
We will review your case and thoroughly investigate the situation surrounding your injury to determine the best course of action.
