Question:

Is my daughter entitled to bouncy castle injury compensation if she suffered a head injury while inside a bouncy castle? An older child somersaulted inside the bouncy castle, striking her on the head. The bouncy castle was hired for a birthday party at a neighbour’s house.

Answer:

Your daughter may well be entitled to bouncy castle injury compensation if your neighbour failed to adhere to safety guidelines for hosting the bouncy castle. According to most instructions for use of a bouncy castle, children of different ages and sizes should not be allowed to play together at the same time. Moreover, continuous supervision should be in place to ensure that children are not playing in an exceedingly boisterous fashion.

As children of different ages were allowed to play together, and the child was allowed to somersault, your claim for bouncy castle injury compensation may be made on the grounds of negligence which resulted in an injury.

Although you may be hesitant about making a claim for bouncy castle injury compensation against a neighbour, a claim can be handled sensitively. Moreover, any settlement of bouncy castle injury compensation will be paid for by your neighbour´s insurers, so will not directly come from your neighbour´s pocket. When you make a bouncy castle injury compensation claim, you would be seeking recompense for your child’s pain and suffering and consequential impact of the injury – such as medical costs – against your neighbour’s home insurance policy.

Another factor to keep in mind in an injury claim involving children is that you have three years from your child’s eighteenth birthday to file a claim. (Naturally, you may want to file a claim for bouncy castle injury compensation much sooner than this.) Prior to making a bouncy castle injury compensation claim, you should speak with an experienced personal injury solicitor who is familiar with child injury claims to discuss the circumstances that led to your daughter’s injury.
