How common are bounce house injuries?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are around 10,000 children who suffer from bounce house injuries each year in the United States. Many estimate that this number could be even doubled since these are just the reported emergency room visits. There are several other circumstances where children are injured in bounce houses yet may not visit the emergency room for treatment until days later.

What should I do after my child has experienced injuries from a bounce house?

  • After you or your loved one have been injured in a bounce house accident, you should get medical evaluated right away. A medical evaluation is a great way for medical providers to determine exactly what injuries you have suffered and the best steps for treatment. Usually, bounce house injuries could result in lacerations, cuts, bruises, or even severe injuries like spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries that will need immediate medical treatment.
  • Document the entire accident. Usually, bounce houses are very common at children’s birthdays and events. In such events, there may be several eyewitnesses to a bounce house accident. Make sure you have documented all of the eyewitnesses, taken photos of the bounce house incident and taken photos of the injuries your child has suffered.
  • Contact a top-rated Sacramento attorney to get started on filing a lawsuit or claim against the responsible parties.

What should I do to prevent bounce house accidents in Sacramento?

  • If you purchase a bounce house from a retailer, make sure that you read all instructions that go with the bounce house. For example, if there is a weight limit make sure that you follow the proper weight limits and set up instructions.
  • In the event that you or your child attend a birthday at another person’s property that has a bounce house, make sure that the property owner has taken the necessary steps to keep and hold the bounce house down to prevent the bounce house from tipping.
  • If you were to rent an inflatable bounce house from a third-party company, you should make sure that this third-party company is safe. Ask for any accreditations, along with any past accidents in the past. Read up on reviews of the bounce house rental company to see if there have been any complaints of safety in the past. 
  • Children within a specific age range should be in the bounce house. For example, older adults should refrain from getting into the bounce house.
  • Make sure that you note the weight limit allowed in the bounce house. If there are too many children in the bounce house all at once, it could increase the risk of tipping over.
  • Bounce houses should be set up away from any sharp objects, such as fences or gates which could be dangerous in the event of an incident.
  • Children should not wear any jewelry or glasses when using the bounce house, since it could be a sharp object and could cause injuries if they were to collide with another child. 
  • Make sure that there are no children with food or drinks entering the bounce house at any point.
  • There should be adults supervising the children in the bounce house at all times.
  • Children should not grab onto walls or nets in the bounce house at any point. This could increase the likelihood of tipping over.
  • There should be no horseplay among children in the bounce house.
