Factors contributing to trampoline injuries

A trampoline can mean hours and hours of summer fun for your children in Pennsylvania, or it can mean a trip to the hospital with a mild to serious injury. Children have broken bones, gotten concussions and even been hurt so severely that they needed surgery. As a parent, you need to know what factors could contribute to a trampoline injury.

First and foremost, the risk goes up when there are multiple children jumping on the trampoline at the same time. Not only does the energy level increase, but children could collide or cause injuries to other children.

Many injuries happen when children simply come down wrong. Landing with the foot twisted just slightly to the side could lead to a sprained or broken ankle, while landing wrong after an attempted backflip could lead to a broken neck. Additionally, some children lose track of where they are and jump right off of the trampoline entirely.

Furthermore, the edges of the trampoline can be a hazard, as a child could come down on a spring or on the metal edge itself. The child could also put his or her foot through the hole between the springs and then be injured when bouncing back up.

Finally, some trampoline injuries happen when the trampoline breaks. This could happen because of design flaws or simply because quality control was not sufficient during the construction and assembly process.

If your child is hurt and needs medical care, look into your rights to seeking compensation. For defective products that cause injuries or contribute to them, you may be able to be compensated for those medical bills, and we hope you'll visit our page now to learn all that you need to know about this process.
