As a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorney with experience in handling serious child injury cases, I know that children have a tendency to suffer injuries through all manner of different circumstances. If your son or daughter was hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, however, then you may be able to recover compensation with the assistance of a board certified child injury lawyer.
Inflatable bounce houses are childhood staples of birthday parties, backyard BBQs, and all kinds of special events. However, despite the bright colors and the seemingly safe “bouncy” structure, the potential for serious injuries - such as serious neck injuries, bone fractures, sprains/strains, and even concussions or traumatic brain injury - is enormous. Injuries may be caused by falls or by collisions with other children bouncing inside the inflatable structure.
According to the journal Pediatrics, the number of children injured in bounce house accidents has increased dramatically over the past several years, with more than 11,300 children requiring medical care for bounce house-related injuries in 2010 alone.
Protecting Your Child’s Legal Right to Compensation
If your child has been injured while using a bounce house, it is extremely likely that their injury was caused by an adult’s negligence, and that there is insurance available for you to make a claim for damages. Under Texas law, your child may be entitled to compensation to cover the cost of their past and future medical bills, compensate them for any pain or suffering they have experienced, and put money in their pocket if their injuries will have any long-lasting effect on their future.
It is advisable that you speak with an experienced Fort Worth child injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your child’s bounce house injury case. It costs nothing upfront to hire a child injury attorney – Texas child injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay them nothing out of pocket. Instead, their payment is deferred until your case settles, at which point they receive a percentage of the total amount of money recovered.
