Recent news stories have reported on the "epidemic" of bounce house injuries. A 2012 study published in the journal Pediatrics revealed a 15-fold increase in bounce house injuries between 1995 and 2010. Researchers determined that on average 31 children per day were visiting emergency rooms with bounce house-related injuries. The average age of the injury victim was 7 years old and the most common injuries were fractures or sprains to a leg or arm.
How do bounce house accidents happen?
The most common way children get hurt is when one bouncer falls into another child. Some people buy "do-it-yourself" packages and allow children to use the structures without professional attendants. Some see this as a recipe for disaster.
Bounce house accidents also happen when a structure suddenly and unexpectedly deflates. Children can immediately become trapped inside while air escapes from the structure. Children can become injured trying to escape from the bounce house, colliding with other children, or falling to the ground. In other instances, unsecured bounce houses have rolled over or been sent flying through the air, leaving children at risk of falling to the ground. When a negligent bounce house rental company or facility caused your child's accident, that company needs to be held responsible for their actions.
