Children Hurt at Fun Parks, Playspaces, Trampoline Parks

Taking your child to a fun park, playspace, or trampoline park can feel like a magical upcoming day of fun. Some of the most loved fun parks in California include Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Kids World Family Fun Center, and Ball N Bounce. Though these places offer hours of fun family time, they also come with risks. Accidents are sometimes right around the corner even in places we wouldn’t expect.

At Maison Law, our attorneys offer representation to those who have been injured in accidents at fun parks, playspaces, and more. Children are vulnerable parties who are easily injured in an accident in any of these areas. A child deserves representation for the injuries that they sustain, which can follow them through life if they are severe enough.

Common Injuries at Fun Parks and Playspaces

At a fun park or playspace, anything can happen. A child could suffer a fall or fall victim to another person’s reckless behavior. There are many common injuries that children sustain in these areas each year, which include the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Drowning
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Internal organ damage

After a child has sustained an injury at a playspace, fun park, or trampoline park, medical attention should immediately be sought. Not only does this protect the health and well-being of your child, but it can also protect the future of their personal injury claim.

Causes of Accidents at Fun Parks and Playspaces

Thousands of people, including children, are injured in accidents at fun parks and playspaces yearly. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include the following:

  • Improper design of rides
  • Construction flaws in the playspace
  • Letting too many people on a ride, leading to weight issues
  • Negligent employees allowing too many people into an area
  • Fall hazards
  • Being hit by objects in certain areas

Causes of Accidents at Trampoline Parks

Trampoline parks also come with their own unique set of hazards. Injuries in children commonly occur at these parks due to the following reasons:

  • Too many children using a trampoline at the same time, causing jumpers to collide or fall onto each other
  • Falling off of a trampoline area onto a harder area
  • Failed attempts at doing tricks on a trampoline
  • Double-jumping, which can propel a person higher into the air

Options for Families When a Child is Injured at a Playspace or Related Park

If your child has been injured in an accident at a fun park, playspace, or trampoline park, you may have a variety of legal options available for you. You may be able to bring a claim against the park itself, the owners of the park, or any operators who played a role in your child’s accident. On top of this, a manufacturer of equipment could be at fault depending on the circumstances of the accident. You may find that you are eligible for damages under two different types of claims, specifically:

Product Liability: The manufacturer of a ride or equipment in a park needs to ensure that the product works safely so that children are not hurt in preventable accidents. If there was a defect that led to your child’s injuries, the manufacturer could be held accountable in a claim.

Premises Liability: When a business is open to the public, especially children, they must meet certain safety standards. If there are dangerous conditions on the property and it caused a child’s injuries, the park or owners could be held fully liable.

In California, a child under 18 is unable to bring a personal injury claim if they have been hurt in an accident. However, the parents or guardian of the child can bring a claim on their behalf for a wide array of damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. Understanding your legal options can help you during these difficult times for your family.
