Trampoline Park Injuries and Liability Waivers
Amusement parks routinely point to express and implied waivers in an effort to defend themselves against personal injury claims. Fortunately for many injury victims, these waivers are not a complete bar to compensation, especially in the case of minors.
In Texas, the public policy provides robust protection for children’s rights. As such, the appellate courts have ruled that a parent or guardian cannot waive a child’s right to pursue a personal injury claim for compensation.
It is important to note that valid waivers only cover acts of negligence and offer no protection for grossly negligent or reckless behavior. In Texas, gross negligence occurs when someone’s act or omission creates an unreasonable risk of danger that they are aware of and ignore.
How Accidents Happen at Sky Zone
As with other Sky Zone parks, the one located in Irving is a fully interactive playground that requires physical exertion from visitors. The giant trampolines send jumpers high into the air to be deposited back on the trampoline.
No one denies that these and other similar Sky Zone activities are inherently risky, and knowing how trampoline park accidents tend to occur can help you avoid them.
In 2019, a trampoline park accident occurred at an establishment in Houston that had faulty equipment. A 16-year-old boy fell through a torn trampoline and fractured his skull, leading to a traumatic brain injury.
Video from inside the establishment showed numerous close-call incidents with children and the tear before the 16-year-old finally fell through. The jury found this to be grossly negligent and awarded the boy $11.5 million, regardless of any signed waiver.
Collisions with Other People or Objects
Trampoline collisions are common and can lead to serious injuries. Oftentimes, jumpers find themselves unable to fully control their movements while playing and hit other people or objects located on or off the trampoline.
A large number of Sky Zone injuries that occur on trampolines involve bad landings. Most injury victims in this category injure their lower limbs by twisting or overextending their joints.
Others land on their neck and suffer compression injuries and breaks. Still, there are those who fall off the trampoline altogether, as was the case of this boy who broke both of his heels at a park in North Carolina.
Although known as a trampoline park, Sky Zone in Irving, TX, is home to numerous sport-like activities, each with its own risk. At a Sky Zone in New Jersey, a young boy suffered a compound fracture of his right ankle during Ultimate Dodgeball and filed suit.
In reality, Sky Zone accidents can happen in countless different ways. Even if you are not participating in an activity, you may still suffer an injury. Regardless of how it happens, you may have a strong claim for compensation worth pursuing.
What to Do After an Accident at Sky Zone
No matter how Sky Zone accidents may occur, your safety and the safety of others are the primary concerns.
Your first steps following an injury should be to seek emergency medical attention, initially from first responders and then from a doctor. The medical report and evaluations you receive are fundamental to any claim for injuries.
You should also make sure a park supervisor or manager is aware of the accident and has completed an initial report. For an independent report, you can also notify the police. These reports will be used as evidence to support your claim.
Additionally, you should take pictures of the accident scene and your Sky Zone injuries if possible. They will be extremely helpful to your Sky Zone accident attorney when negotiating your compensation.
Once you have been medically evaluated, your next recommended action is to contact a personal injury attorney. You need to have your case evaluated by an advocate who wants to see you get justly compensated for your injuries.
If you speak with an insurance adjuster before hiring an attorney, you risk being cornered into accepting a settlement far below what you need and deserve.
Frequently Asked Questions About Sky Zone Accidents
Take a look at the following questions, which are commonly asked by clients we represent. They should help familiarize you with some of the basics surrounding injury claims at Sky Zone.
How much compensation can I get for my Sky Zone accident?
The amount of compensation you receive depends on the facts of your case and the extent of your Sky Zone injuries. As you might imagine, catastrophic injuries that deeply impact a person’s life will require far more compensation than a broken finger.
Also, it is important to keep in mind that insurance companies invariably want to pay you less than what you deserve. Their tactics reflect this desire and include convincing you to take a fast and easy settlement or getting you to admit your responsibility for your injury, which could significantly reduce or negate your payout.
What if I was partially at fault for my Sky Zone injury?
In Texas, injury victims are not prohibited from seeking compensation when they share responsibility for causing their own injuries. However, your percentage of fault cannot be more than 50% in order to seek compensation for your injuries.
Once the negotiations or the court determines the percentages of fault, your compensation will diminish proportionately according to your percentage of fault.
How much does a Sky Zone injury lawyer charge?
You will find that the typical Sky Zone accident attorney works on a contingency basis, which means their clients do not pay any upfront costs to get their lawsuit moving forward. Typically, the fees you owe for your attorney’s services will be paid from the settlement or verdict your Sky Zone accident lawyer wins for you.
Is there a time limit for filing a suit for personal injuries caused by Sky Zone?
Yes. A valid personal injury claim for compensation will be dismissed if it is not filed within two years of the injury.
If, however, the victim is a minor (which is often the case at amusement parks) and the minor is personally claiming the damages, then the time limit does not start running until the child reaches age 18. However, the two-year time limit remains in effect if the parents file the claim.
