Anyone with young children probably has rented a 'bounce house' for their child's birthday party. If not, the child probably has been in one at a friend's birthday party - they are popular and the children love them.
'Bounce houses' have been in the news lately. Did you hear about the tragic incident that happened last week in New York? It was windy and the 'bounce house' flew off the ground, causing small children to sustain bumps and bruises. When it finally landed, it critically injured a mother by crashing onto her. All in all, 13 people ended up in the hospital.
This is not the only incident - inflatables all over the country have been toppling as a result of a windy day, including two in California which injured 9 children.
With summer on its way, many families have their birthday parties outdoors and rent an inflatable 'bounce house'. It's okay to rent one because they amuse the children for hours. However, there is a lesson to learn - these 'bounce houses' can endanger lives when not properly installed or operated. The ride is not the problem - it's the way they are set up, anchored, and supervised.
If your child is injured while playing in one of these inflatable 'bounce houses', contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney - you may be eligible for compensation for your child's injuries and medical expenses.
