Bouncy House Injury


Bounce Houses are inflatable structures and slides that have become enormously popular at birthday parties, gatherings, school events, and fairs. Children enjoy these structures where they can jump and bounce defying gravity in what is perceived by adults to be a safe environment for this kind of activity. These inflatable structures, when supervised, maintained, and setup accurately can provide children with hours of fun. But in the event there is a mishap because of an issue with the Bounce House, it can result in serious accidents and bodily harm.

We have seen a lot of news in LA about Bounce Houses, causing severe injuries. And it could be for many reasons. For one, it could be a design defect that caused the malaise.  But more often than not, the owner or operator of the house knows of these problems and does nothing to keep it safe for kids. And in that case, you can sue the ride operator, landlord, and any agent responsible for the equipment. And this is the essence of a bounce house injury claim. We call it "Negligence."

In the United States, there have been hundreds of lawsuits involving bounce houses, generally due to broken arms or legs. But due to its dense population and a large number of Hispanic families, in particular, Los Angeles is a haven for these incidents.

Sadly, in rare legal actions, the lawsuit is for wrongful death. And this is because death often follows a traumatic head injury or a broken neck. Sadly, most of these legal actions involving harm to small children. Often the tragic incident occurred at public gatherings, and families not only bring the lawsuit against the bounce house company but may include the organizer of the event and, in some cases, the sponsors. You may even have to sue a brother, aunt, or uncle to get homeowner's insurance coverage. What this means for a large family is so tragic, it remains indescribeable to the spoken word.

But the facts of the case will help identify early on, the liable parties, and their amount of responsibility. And the responsible parties can include the rental company of the bounce house. But it can consist of others when harm befalls the victim at a private party during the use of the inflatable structure. So, in that case, the rental company, as well as the landowner, can be held responsible. Injury claims for harm caused in an inflatable recreational structure are complicated cases because of the facts and the negligence involved in a personal injury claim.
