Trampoline Park Accident


As trampoline parks become more popular, the number of residential trampolines are few and far between. Unfortunately, it seems that commercial trampoline parks pose similar (if not more) risks. Lazy trampoline park employees and unsafe equipment may lead to catastrophic injuries. In 2015, there were at least 100,000 incidents where individuals suffered injuries caused by trampolines. If you or a loved one have been injured in a trampoline park accident, seek immediate medical attention, and then contact us to discuss your case.

Trampoline Park Safety Statistics

The International Association of Trampoline Parks (“IATP”) develops commercial trampoline park safety guidelines. Sadly, the IATP’s safety standards are more recommendations than requirements because there are not any current regulations for the commercial trampoline industry, which may lead to lesser safety standards. As a result, a lack in commercial trampoline standards and guidelines may lead to a higher number of future trampoline accidents. Although some commercial trampoline parks may encourage safety, the parks have no legal obligation to follow safety standards. IATP works with commercial trampoline park owners and park owners sign a pledge to meet safety standards set forth by the IATP trade organization. Importantly, consumers have no way of determining which trampoline parks abide by IATP’s safety standards. As a result, in 2020, IATP intends to hire a third party company to conduct trampoline park safety investigations.

Notably, most states do not have commercial trampoline park regulations. Only a few states have enacted trampoline park safety standards and penalties. Some states have started to initiate government regulations and penalties. Until the federal government or State of Florida enact trampoline legislation and regulations, commercial trampoline park are not required to meet the safety standards, as set forth by IATP.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still file a claim if I signed a waiver?

Maybe. It really depends on a number of factors. It depends on the waiver’s contractual language and who signed the waiver.
