Trampolines Blamed for Child Injuries in Texas

Texas Children's Hospital has seen many child injuries come through its doors, and trampolines have been blamed for some injuries in children between the ages of 5 and 10. In the event your child is injured in a trampoline accident, there may be third parties that can be held liable. You should seek help from an Austin personal injury attorney.

Common Child Injuries Due to Trampoline Accidents

According to the chief of pediatric orthopedics and scoliosis at Texas Children's Hospital, Dr. William A. Phillips, approximately 100,000 children between 5 and 10 years old are injured annually on trampolines. Common injuries include:

  • sprains;
  • fractures;
  • scrapes;
  • bruises;
  • lacerations;
  • concussion/head trauma;
  • back injury;
  • paralysis; and
  • death. 

A good way to reduce the risk of your child suffering injuries while playing on a trampoline is to make sure the trampoline is in a controlled environment with supervision.

Trampolines can be fun at any age, but unexpected accidents can occur that result in serious injuries. When your child has been injured due to another's negligence such as a faulty part in a product or irresponsible supervision, you may be eligible to file a claim. Your Austin personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and fight for your legal rights.
