About trampoline accidents

Accidents involving a trampoline can often be very serious. Although children will more often than not enjoy themselves without a mishap, it can be all-too easy to have a non-fault accident, with many minor bumps turning into more serious injuries.

It is possible to make a trampoline accident claim where the trampoline used was privately owned, hired or in a public place, as well as whether it was a manufacturer fault, or the responsible adult is liable for your child’s injuries.

Who is responsible?

Anyone who has hired, rented or purchased a trampoline for personal use, an event, occasion or public place has a duty of care towards those that are using the equipment. This duty of care requires them to do the following:

  • Ensure the users are appropriately prepared and in adequate physical and mental condition
  • Use safe and appropriate methods of training
  • Provide adequate observation of those on the trampoline
  • Set up the trampoline in a safe and suitable location
  • Have a first-aider on standby
  • Use a safety net

In addition to this, those responsible for the trampoline need to consider “reasonable foreseeability”, which means they should make provisions for the fact that young children are bound to get excited while playing, and so taking care to provide adequate safety features.

‘Litigation friend’

A litigation friend is a parent or guardian who acts on behalf of a child to protect their best interests. An individual would require a litigation friend if they are under the age of 18 or if they lack capacity to conduct the litigation in question.
