Trampoline injury lawsuits are on the rise because trampolines have really made a comeback. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has firmly stated its opinion: “The trampoline should never be used in home environments or in school physical education classes or outdoor settings or recreational settings.” Yet, in massive numbers, no one follows this advice. Injuries can still occur despite padding and netting.
Trampolines may seem like innocent fun, but they pose a significant risk of injury. These injuries can range from minor sprains and fractures to serious neck and spinal injuries, and in rare cases, can result in death. According to a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, emergency departments in the United States treat approximately 100,000 trampoline-related injuries annually. These statistics underline the urgent need for increased safety measures and responsible use.
