Kay Ditcham from our Personal Injury Team comments;

“Regulation of activities such as this, or indeed anything that has potential to cause injury, is always a good thing.  Trampoline parks have become increasingly popular over the last couple of years, and most of them seem to be well run and maintained.  

However, any measures that can stop unscrupulous traders from setting up facilities without proper safety just to earn a quick buck should be implemented. 

 I note though that 63% of the recorded accidents are attributed to “bad landings”.  No amount of regulation or safety measures can prevent such injuries.  Accidents are inevitable when children are jumping around energetically. Other than providing adequate padding, there is not much else the trampoline parks can do. 

 Kids will be kids as they say!”
