Dangers of Inflatable Bounce Houses

Inflatable bounce houses are often the main attraction at children’s birthday parties, school events, or other social gatherings. Although these are extremely popular among children, they can also be incredibly dangerous if they are set up improperly or if they are not well cared for.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an inflatable bounce house that was set up improperly, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injury-related expenses.

How to Stay Safe in a Bounce House

Bounce house injury statistics are alarming. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there were nearly 5,000 bounce house-related injuries between 2002 and 2005 with four confirmed deaths. Although there are some unforeseen injury causes, many injuries can be avoided if you follow these safety guidelines:

  • Make sure that all children in a bounce house are approximately the same size
  • Adults should stay out of bounce houses when children are present
  • Shoes, jewelry, and glasses should be removed before entering a bounce house
  • Dangerous activities, like flips, should be avoided
  • Do not play in a bounce house if it is raining or if there is water present

Most of these units are rented and may be significantly worn down or damaged. Unfortunately, even if you follow all of the above safety tips, a bounce house that is in poor condition could cause those who play in it to suffer considerable harm.
