Mother Files Premises Liability Suit Against Trampoline Park

Entertainment centers across the country, including in Illinois have a responsibility to provide safe surroundings for visitors to the amenities. To ensure safe entertainment, proprietors must provide qualified supervision for dangerous activities. Some entertainment facilities require indemnity waivers to be signed but fail to manage such programs properly. It is not uncommon for such companies to be sued for premises liability when visitors suffer injuries due to negligent management.

In answer to a March lawsuit filed against Jumping World USA in another state, the company has denied liability and seeks strict proof. It also requested the court to deny the claims of the plaintiff and award costs to the defendant. The plaintiff’s complaint asserts that her children and friends visited the park in February. Although the defendant apparently requires parents or guardians of children under 18 years of age to sign a waiver, workers for the indoor trampoline park apparently neglected to check her son’s age. It is said that the son signed the waiver form himself.

It is alleged that the plaintiff’s son suffered a fractured foot during his visit to the defendant’s trampoline park. The mother, on her own behalf as well as on behalf of her son, seeks damages in excess of $1 million. The damages claimed are for pain and suffering, impairment, and mental anguish, along with medical expenses and loss of income.

Illinois residents whose children — or themselves — have suffered injuries under similar circumstances may have viable personal injury claims. Evidence of negligence must be established to validate premises liability claims. Some victims choose to utilize the services of a premises liability attorney to assist with gathering evidence and protect their rights before the court. Medical expenses and other documented losses sustained as the result of such incidents may be claimed.
