When it comes to fun centers with trampolines, do injuries simply come with the territory? An injury attorney looks closer at Sky High Sports in Bellevue.

Sky High Sports Faces Five Personal Injury Lawsuits in Six Months?

This week, we covered a Washington personal injury lawsuit filed against Bellevue trampoline playground Sky High Sports. In the suit, a man claims that his child suffered a serious brain injury and amnesia after striking his head on an exposed piece of metal while jumping in a foam pit at the play center. Shockingly, this was far from the first child injury and accident claim to occur at the Bellevue location of the business in 2012. 

Personal Injury Claims and Fun Centers

The fun center business has 16 different locations in seven states across the country. Designed for both adults and children, the centers host birthday parties, adult dodge ball games, parties, and other events. The company advertises that unlike private trampolines in backyards, their indoor trampolines are padded with two inches of foam so that there is no falling off—and that their areas are supervised for extra safety. However, the Bellevue fun center also requires its visitors to sign a release that waives liability and acknowledges risk.

Sky High Sports: A Mounting Number of Accidents?

Since the fun center opened in Washington, Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue has reported a significant increase in back injuries originating at Sky High Sports. In addition, a local news station has investigated the number of injuries coming from the center. Five different injury victims in King County have filed personal injury lawsuits in the last five months.

While the company’s lawyer did not comment, the co-founder of the company has said in the past that the experience of the trampoline fun center can’t exist without risks, and that a small number of children are expected to suffer injuries.
