Trampoline Injury Attorneys
Thousands of American families own trampolines and use them regularly and safely. However, there is a significant potential for serious injury during a trampoline accident. Most trampoline injuries are a result of misuse, such as jumpers attempting stunts, colliding with each other, or jumping or falling off of the trampoline and landing on the springs or on the ground. In some cases, though, trampoline injuries are a result of poor design or manufacture, or inadequate safety warnings. When this is the case, victims of trampoline injuries are entitled to compensation for a number of damages, including medical care, rehabilitative costs, and pain and suffering.

- Wrongful death
Recently, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Sportspower Limited issued a voluntary recall of Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampolines. This product was sold exclusively at Walmart, and has been found to propose a significant danger to users. The recall is based on the fact that the safety netting that surrounds these trampolines can break. This allows for the potential for users to fall through the broken net and sustain serious injury.
To date, Sportspower has received 17 reports of trampoline’s nets breaking during use, causing injury to at least 11 people. Injuries sustained by users of the Sportspower trampoline include contusions, back injuries, broken bones, and neck injuries.
These recalled trampolines were sold at Walmart from 2009 through 2012 for a cost of roughly $275. If you purchased one of these dangerous trampolines, stop using it immediately. Contact Sportspower, and they will send you replacement netting for the trampoline. If you or someone you love has been injured on a recalled Sportspower trampoline, you may be entitled to significant compensation.

Trampoline Accident Lawsuits
Our trampoline attorneys are highly experienced in dangerous product and premises liability lawsuits, and we have the skills and resources necessary to thoroughly investigate the cause of the trampoline accident and any liability associated with the accident. When defective design or inadequate safety warnings are at fault, a product liability lawsuit may be brought against the maker or seller of an unsafe trampoline.
Grounds for a trampoline injury product liability lawsuit may include:
- Inadequate design
- Failure of the frame bed or suspension system under normal use
- Failure to provide end protectors for springs
- Improper securing of frame pads to frame, causing frame pads to move
- Weak or poorly designed folding mechanisms
- Inadequate mat attachment to frame
- Use of black materials in the making of the mat
- Failure to warn or inadequate warning of potential dangers
In addition to the potential to bring suit against the maker or seller of a faulty trampoline, there may also be an opportunity for a premises liability lawsuit in the event of a trampoline injury. Under premises liability laws, the person who owns or provides the trampoline may be held accountable for injuries sustained on his or her trampoline or property. Questions we may ask in a premises liability trampoline lawsuit include:
- Was there a safety net around the trampoline?
- Was the victim being supervised while using the trampoline?
- Were too many people using the trampoline at one time?
- Were the conditions under which the trampoline was used safe and in accordance with the trampoline instructions?
