Kids and teenagers are frequently filled with bundles of energy and enthusiasm. They love to stay active. Parks, playgrounds, and open fields are great venues for kids to expend their energy in a healthy way. It is important, however, that such locations are properly maintained to ensure the safety and health of our youth. Poorly maintained parks with broken down equipment are a potential source of serious injury. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
Southern Florida hosts a great number of “trampoline parks,” or designated areas where parents pay money so that their kids can bounce around for a period of time. They are extremely popular and have generally been viewed by parents as a great way to spend an afternoon with their kids. However, recent reports that dissected 911 calls in south Florida have discovered that a significant number of injuries occur at these parks. Many of these injuries require paramedics to show up, and in one case it has led to a lawsuit against the management of these parks.
Alexandra Karob-Volpina, age 13, broke her ankle at Off the Wall, a trampoline park in South Florida. Alexandra was out of commission for a long period of time, and she was unable to participate in various activities that she enjoys, such as gymnastics. Reports indicate that despite the numerous safety signs present at the park, as well as the presence of two employees whose job it is to monitor safety on the trampoline, kids were still running wild and doing the kind of flips and bounces specifically prohibited by the park. The lawsuit, filed by attorney William Ruggiero, based in Fort Lauderdale, alleges negligence by the park in failing to have adequate supervision.
