Pennsylvania woman sues entertainment company for injury to child

On April 6, 2015, a Haverford woman filed a lawsuit against Get Air, an Utah-based entertainment company, for an injury to a minor child under her care. In the lawsuit, she is asking for $150,000 in damages for emotional distress, pain and suffering, court bills and medical bills for the child's surgery and hospital stay. The woman alleges that the company's negligence lead to the child sustaining a fractured leg which will require several surgeries to repair.

The incident in question occurred in January 2015 at Get Air King of Prussia on an obstacle maze with trampolines and climbing walls. The woman alleges that the minor sustained the injury when she tried to jump onto a fire pole leading down to a foam pit and missed the pole, falling all the way down into the pit. The plaintiff stated in the lawsuit that the foam pit lacked adequate padding. She alleges that an employee told the child to jump onto the pole and did not provide assistance as is normally required

She is also claiming that employees who did not have any emergency medical training moved the child after she had sustained a broken leg. In the lawsuit, the woman is claiming negligence on the part of the company for defective equipment and employee behavior.

For a lawsuit involving dangerous property conditions, injured victims can potentially recover damages for the losses that they have sustained if it can be shown that the property owner was or should have been aware of the the potential hazards. An attorney can use police reports and other evidence, including witness testimony, to show responsibility.
