My Child Was Injured in a Bounce House: Can I Sue?


You may be able to sue the owner or operator of the bounce house for negligence. To prove negligence, you would have the show that the responsible party breached a duty of care and caused your child damage or injury.
Normally and operator would have a duty to manage the number of children allowed in the bounce house, supervising children to stop roughhousing, or ensuring that the bounce house is properly set up and secured to the ground.

You can't blame others for an accident that your own child caused.


Was the operator’s breach of duty the actual cause your child’s injury? Or, did your child cause his own injury by climbing to the very top of the bounce house and jumping down, injuring himself in the fall, despite repeated instructions from attendants not to do so. Alternatively, another child could have hurt your child by jumping on him. If your kid’s injuries were caused by his own actions or the actions of another child, then the bounce house operator would most likely not be liable (or not fully liable).
