Children's Risk of Injury
If someone were to tell me that a bouncy house was responsible for huge spikes in children's injuries, I'd probably scoff at the idea. But as the numbers present, this is a harsh reality. Whether they're small or large injuries, bouncy houses send more children to the hospital every year than any other amusement, past time, or toy. Children who are injured playing in a bouncy house often suffer the following injuries:
- broken bones
- fractures, sprains
- neck injury
- back injury
- closed head injuries
Bouncy houses are designed to offer children a place to horse around and play. But often, this horseplay can get out of hand. And often, parents are unaware of structural defects, or an improper inflation of the bouncy house. Any of these factors could combine to cause injury in your child.
If your child has been injured as a result of playing in a bouncy house, you may be entitled to compensation. You should discuss it with a skilled personal injury attorney. It can be difficult to decide to pursue this action since it's often family, friends, and community members who may be at fault. But if your child is hurt and the medical bills are outlandish, you may need the financial help. Call a skilled personal injury attorney today to discuss your unique case further.
