Despite the numerous videos portraying inflatable bounce houses being lifted and rolled along the ground or, worse yet, being raised high in the sky with small children inside, their popularity continues to rise.
Bounce House Injuries
Inflatable bounce house injuries have led to hundreds of personal injury law claims being filed in the U.S.: The injuries sustained range from broken arms to neck injuries and, in the most severe cases, death. If you and/or your child sustained injuries in this type of incident, you need to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help determine if negligence led to the injuries.
How to Establish Liability
To establish liability, we need to answer several questions, including:
How did you and/or your child become injured?
Who was taking care of the children at the time of the incident?
Was the inflatable house rented from a company or owned by an individual?
Were hazardous weather conditions likely?
If rented, was there a contract between the individual who rented the bounce house and the business from which it was rented?
Were there safety guidelines? If so, were they followed?
After establishing liability, we must prove negligence.
To succeed in a personal injury claim, you must prove some kind of negligence on the part of the party (or parties) responsible for the bounce house. In other words, you must prove that those responsible for the inflatable bounce house did not act with reasonable care, which led to the injury. For example, just like a tent, securing a bounce house requires the use of stakes: If some of the stakes were missing on the day that you and/or your child sustained injuries, this may be considered a form of negligence.
Gathering the information necessary to prove negligence may require an investigation.

If it does, we will help you attain monetary compensation for the injuries that you and/or your child sustained.
