If you just need a trampoline liability waiver, scroll down to the bottom of this article. Thank you.

How to begin…..

I never had a trampoline as a child, but I really wanted one badly. One of my friends had one, so for that particular reason, his backyard was a popular hangout for the neighbor kids. One afternoon, we were taking turns showing off on the trampoline when I attempted a move that was beyond my skills. Jumping as high as I could, I flipped twice and as I was heading back down to earth, I realized I was no longer over the trampoline. I was falling towards the concrete patio and there was nothing I could do about it. I can still remember the terror I felt as I descended onto the glass patio table. The table was shattered, but I was lucky to limp away with only minor cuts and bruises.

Because of my experience, I won’t allow a trampoline in my own backyard, but a friend of mine just purchased one for her family. Her 10 year old son needs to drop a few pounds and she thought having a trampoline in the backyard would encourage him to exercise. She also knows that the neighborhood kids are going to want to get in on the fun and she is worried about injuries. She would like to have parents sign a liability waiver before allowing the kids to jump. I agree with her, but her husband does not.

What Do You Need Trampoline Liability Waiver?




The dangers associated with trampolines are very real and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that they not be used at home. What’s more, many home insurance companies exclude them from policies, leaving a home owner’s personal assets vulnerable if someone should get hurt. Her trampoline has a safety net and she has laid down the rules, but it makes sense to me that she would want to protect herself from being liable in the event of an injury.

Most adult never had a trampoline as a child neither did they play with one. However, today in United States, Trampoline both for commercial and private use is increasing in popularity. In fact, by the end of 2014, there were more than 350 trampoline parks in the United States; this does not take into account those that bought it for private use at their backyard, indoor or schools and other entertainment parks that make use of trampoline for children.

Trampoline seems fun and relaxing and a great way to inspire exercise. Unfortunately, with increase in the use of trampolines comes the increase in trampoline-related accidents. There is no way to completely eliminate accidents occurring when using trampoline, all we can do is to cover against it. In fact, the possibility of children sustaining different degrees of injuries when using trampoline was so vast that one organization which has been in the forefront of advocating for trampoline park safety estimates that a child is about 200 to 300 times more likely to get injury from a trampoline park than any other park including roller coaster.

What do you think? Would you insist that parents sign a waiver before letting their kids jump on your trampoline?

Trampoline Injuries

Most people underestimate the nature of injury one can sustain by using trampoline when playing. When playing in Trampoline Park, you can sustain various degrees of injury which include;

  • Dislocations
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Possible death

Trampoline injures is not limited only to children, adults can also suffer injury from using trampoline park. For instance, a young man lost his foot from trampoline accident last year. In another incident in a trampoline park in Peachtree city, a youth football coach was paralyzed from trampoline accident. No matter how careful you are, you need to know your rights and options available to you before you owing or allow your children to play with trampoline.

Because of serious risk of injuries associated with the use of trampoline, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that trampoline should not be used at home. Even most insurance companies for homes exclude trampoline from their policies, leaving the home owner’s assets vulnerable when someone get hurt.

Parents might be wondering what their rights are before letting their children play with trampoline. On the other hand, park owners will also be wondering what options that is available to them when one sustains an injury in their property. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about trampoline liability.

Trampoline Park Liability

In most states in the United States, the operator or the owner of a trampoline park is liable when one sustains an injury. However this depends on the facts of the injury. Not every injury that the owner will be liable to. The owner may be liable to injuries arising from:

  • Inadequate supervision
  • Use of unsafe product
  • Poor instructions
  • Inadequate warnings and warning signs
  • Negligence maintenance
  • Improper installation
  • Failure to enforce rules and regulations of the park

The person that installed the trampoline or in-charge of maintaining it is also liable from an injury arising from improper installation or maintenance.

Trampoline manufacturers are also liable and can be sued from injury caused by defects in the manufacture of the product.

Someone with a good or experienced personal injury attorney can sue your park when his/her kid sustains an injury after an investigation. Even if you win the court case (as the owner) it will bring a bad name to your business. You certainly need to avoid being sued for any reason at all when operating trampoline business, this is the reason you need trampoline liability waiver.

Importance of Trampoline Liability Waiver

Trampoline park business owners need to prepare and enforce the signing of trampoline liability waiver form. The risk of injury when using trampoline is too much and you cannot allow everyone to sue your business or threaten to sue your business at any slightest injury.

Trampoline liability waiver involves a form which users of Trampoline Park must sign before using it. This waiver will exempt you and your business from being sued, it will exempt you from all liabilities arising from the use of the park. When customer signs the form, he/she is agreeing that he/she will not sue you or your business when they sustain injury.

Homeowners can also limit their liability exposure by requiring their neighbors to sign a liability waiver before allowing their children to jump on the homeowner’s trampoline. It is important that you keep your trampoline where you can always monitor its use as a homeowner, this is because trampolines are kids magnet, it attracts children of all ages and sizes, you need to ensure that those children using your trampoline have already have their parents signed your trampoline liability waiver.

Who signs the waiver?

Waiver signed by children and others under the legal age are not considered to be valid in most states. Whether you have a trampoline park, indoor trampoline or in the backyard, it is very important that you have your insurance company draw up a valid trampoline liability waiver form that will release you liability associated with trampoline use.

Swimming Pool Liability Waiver


Why Do You Need a Swimming Pool Liability?

Do you have a private swimming pool on your backyard? Most of you must be thinking that as a really fun place to have, right? But that is not necessarily right. When accidents happen around the area, you might have to deal with a swimming pool lawsuit. Before that happens, make sure that the home property of yours corresponds toward swimming pool liability. There are several reasons why you definitely need it if you do have a pool or intend to build one.

  1. Liability As Homeowner

It is common for all owners to be responsible for whatever happens in their home property. That includes the pool. After all, homeowner liability exists because of some people do not pay attention to protection related to the area. Imagine someone got injured due to lack of proper maintenance or security toward the swimming pool. When that occurs, it is the homeowner who must be liable for the pool injuries.

  1. Liability for Pool Injuries

We have mentioned about injuries related to swimming pool, but what kind of injuries are those? In this case, the most typical accident happens in this area is slip and fall. As we already know the surface around the pool are very slippery. Consequently, we cannot run away without concerns, or we will fall either to the pool or land. How come the owners become liable to such issue? Truth to be told, it is because they forgot to install anti-slip surfaces that results such accident. Furthermore, drowning also matters here. Thus, it is important to ask whoever wants to swim in your pool to sign private swimming pool waiver first. It will enable you to release of liability when they got injured.

  1. Liability for Attractive Nuisance and Trespassing

What if there is someone else trespasses to our home, use the pool, and got injured? That can also be your responsibility. It may sound odd, but that is the fact. Things like this can appear since you do not possess any security features installed around the pool. In addition, the cause of it might come from something that seems to be attractive around the pool. In fact, it might because of the attractive nuisance swimming pool too. It means this property itself that actually triggers swimming pool trespassing to happen. To avoid such issue, you must build a proper protection like high fence around the pool. When you already have one, make sure again that it is in accordance with available attractive nuisance law.

  1. Liability for Swimming Pool Insurance

Most people will think that everything will be fine as long as they have insurance for the swimming pool. They think they will not have to go through swimming pool lawsuit since the insurance policy has covered them. However, we know that working with such companies can be really troublesome. They will try hard not to be incumbent to pay a large amount of money. That’s why it is better for homeowners to consult with an attorney before working with an insurance company.

Can you see now how swimming pool liability is really important? So, if you own one in your home, you have to make sure that everything suits the law. You can even ask your friends or other guests to sign their “swim at your own risk waiver” before they utilize it. As a result, you can release of liability whenever they got involved in an accident.

Volunteering provides basic help for those in need. It gives benefit for parties, volunteers and other people as well as the communities.

Build connections with people – building connections do not necessarily from the same age group or communities. The fact is building connections with other people is crucial. The connections make us human being. Volunteering helps you to create connections with the community. Even if you just help out with the tiniest task; it can make a huge difference for the community, people, and even pets in need.
