Bounce houses are popular at children’s birthday parties and other family celebrations. While these inflatable fun houses can be exciting for kids, they can also be dangerous and lead to injuries if an accident occurs. If your child was injured in a bounce house, you have the right to file a personal injury claim and hold the liable party responsible.
The Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe is a personal injury law firm helping clients in New York who have had their children injured while in a bounce house. When it comes to injuries in bounce houses, many different parties may be considered liable for your child’s injuries. To ensure you get justice for your child’s injuries, contact our team of trusted New York lawyers to help you build a strong claim.
Who Can Be Held Liable When Your Child Is Injured in a Bounce House?
When paying for a bounce house at an event or family celebration, many people will be required to sign a waiver. However, someone signing a waiver before your child was injured on the bounce house does not mean that you lose the right to sue and seek justice for your child. If your child was injured in a bounce house due to negligent setup, maintenance, or management, you have the right to sue and receive compensation to help your child recover from the injury they have suffered.
The parties that may be held liable when suing for a bounce house injury are as follows:
- The property owner where your child’s accident occurred
- The equipment owners
- The renter, which could be a person, entity, group, or organization, that leased the bounce house
- The installers of the bounce house
- The bounce house manufacturer that designed a faulty product
- The bounce house operator or supervisor
If you are unsure who may be liable or if more than one party may be liable, a personal injury lawyer can help. An experienced lawyer can help you collect evidence proving that the liable party owed you a duty of care that they breached, leading to your child’s injuries and your losses.
Are You Eligible to Collect Damages From a Bounce House Injury Claim?
If your child has suffered as a result of a bounce house accident, you may be experiencing serious losses as you take the necessary steps to get them the care they need to recover. You should not have to pay out of pocket for your child’s injuries that could have been prevented if the liable party had not acted in a negligent manner. If your child has suffered harm as a result of a bounce house accident, you may be eligible to collect the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
