  • In 2014, medical, legal, liability, work loss, and pain and suffering costs related to trampoline injuries were estimated at nearly $9 billion, according to AAOS.
  • Nearly one-third of trampoline-related injuries involved fractures and attempting somersaults and flips on the trampoline are among the most common causes of permanent and devastating cervical spine injuries.
  • Many injuries occur even with supervision, and 75% of all trampoline injuries occur when multiple people are on the jumping surface at once, according to The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
  • Homeowners and private businesses should be put on notice that simply providing a trampoline for recreational use will likely submit them to legal liability should an injury occur.
  • Homeowners should also investigate whether their homeowner liability insurance policies cover the costs of injuries associated with trampoline use.
