Who Is At Fault For Your Trampoline Injury?
Before we get to trampoline injury compensation, it matters who is at fault. California law requires that a person, or business entity, be legally responsible for your injuries before a damage analysis. For example, if you set up a trampoline in your backyard and the trampoline is perfectly fine, but you just bounce out of it as a result of not paying attention and land on the ground causing injury, then if no one else was to blame, there is no claim for damages. Generally, if a trampoline injury occurs and it is someone else’s fault then that person or business may be liable for monetary damages. For example, if a homeowner who had a trampoline on their property or an amusement park/trampoline park and they did something (or failed to do something) to maintain the trampoline and use of the trampoline in a safe manner, then the person or entity may be liable to the injured person.
Normally, we may expect to see improper maintenance, improper inspection, improper assembly or other factors such that may fall below a reasonable standard of care (buzzword for negligence) leading to a claim for damages. For example, if a homeowner invited people over for a trampoline party, but failed to build it per instruction and it collapses, then the homeowner may be liable. Another example, you go to a trampoline park and the park failed to replace springs and they snap when you land on them, the park is likely liable. What’s your situation?

Trampoline Injury Lawsuit Damages
This is where it gets bad, unfortunately. Some of the worst injuries our trampoline injury compensation attorney’s have seen include bilateral knee surgeries with lasting ambulation impairments. There generally are not minor aches and pains type injuries after a trampoline accident. The most common types of trampoline injuries are radius and ulnar fractures in the upper body, knee and ankle fractures in the lower body and fractures of the spine, head and ribs in the torso/head area.

Given that the injuries are serious, the damages can be also. The short term expenses will be medical bills, followed by lost income. As time goes on these will compound. Assuming fault has been established, the law will allow for a claim to include past and future medical bills, past and future pain and suffering, loss of consortium (marriage enjoyment) and other monetary losses which are case dependent.
But remember, to ever get to damages, we need to establish that someone else (or a business) is at fault, who they are and what they did (and let’s not forget do they have insurance and if so, how much). It is critical to talk to one of our lawyers sooner than later as witnesses, evidence, video, memories and materials all tend to fade with time. A business or liable homeowner may also destroy evidence. Although there are rules around this, it is preferred to have evidence as close in time to the injury accident as possible.
