Bounce House & Trampoline Injury Claims in Missouri
A “bounce house” is a warehouse or facility filled with various connected trampolines or a series of inflatables courses. These facilities are increasingly popular for children’s parties, events, and outings in the St. Louis area. However, if not properly managed, maintained, supervised, or designed, these facilities can be extremely dangerous.

Trampoline & Bounce House Liability
When considering renting a bounce house or using a trampoline, ask yourself the following questions:
- Does the facility limit the number of individuals allowed inside at the same time?
- Does the facility allow more than one person at a time to use a particular inflatable, course, or trampoline?
- Is there a process in place that physically separates participants by age and weight?
- Does the facility list and obey weight limitations for users?
- What safety precautions does the facility take to minimize harm to all participants?
Common sports facility injuries include broken limbs, serious lacerations and cuts, head or brain injuries, neck injuries, and back injuries. If you or your child has suffered one of these injuries or similar injuries, you may be able to prove facility negligence and seek monetary compensation.
Many law firms will not consider trampoline, inflatables, or other facility sports-related injuries to be viable injury claims. They probably assume that because the victim had to sign a liability waiver or release, they cannot bring a personal injury claim. However, that may not be the case, especially if your injury was the result of inaccurate safety representations, or gross negligence creating unreasonable safety risks.
Our lawyers work with experts to determine the root cause of the recreational accident. We work to determine whether or not the facility was negligent. Similarly, we carefully examine the release or waiver form you signed to determine if it is actually legally binding.
It is our understanding that some trampoline and bounce facilities try to discourage injured customers from making damage claims by telling victims they will have to pay attorney fees. However, if the waiver or release can be overcome, the facility may have to pay your attorney fees.
Our lawyers will never charge a fee to an injured client unless we successfully win you monetary compensation. Do not be intimidated by the facility or the language on the form or release. Let our attorneys decide whether or not you have a viable personal injury case today.
