Bounce House Takes Flight; Injures Three Kids

An inflatable house is fun for kids to play in, provided there are no strong wind gusts that rip the house from its moorings and bounce kids around so badly that serious injuries result.

The accident happened to three Texas children who got one really wild ride when a high wind snatched their bounce house from its tethers and threw it several hundred feet. The three children were 2, 5, and 7 years old; they were inside the house when the wind tossed them at least 10 feet in the air, bounced them across a street and landed them in another neighbor’s backyard, three homes away. It was quite the frightening ride for the kids who sustained injuries ranging from a broken leg to a broken jaw.

Fire department officials indicate that when bounce houses are in use, they must be securely fastened to the ground on all sides and should not be used in windy weather conditions. In this case, the house was only tethered to a fence by two nylon ropes and the weather that day was gusty.

There is a good possibility that the parents of the children will want to speak to a lawyer about filing a lawsuit. If there was negligence involved in this case, and on the surface, that is how it appears, then the people who didn’t securely fasten the house and used it on a windy day may be responsible for damages.

When a lawsuit for personal injuries or disabilities is filed, litigants often find themselves suffering financially; many litigants turn to lawsuit funding as a means of obtaining the money they need now. We wish to emphasize that children are not candidates for litigation funding because they lack the capacity to contract; their parents may be candidates for a lawsuit cash advance for care they provided or medical bills that they have incurred. Legal finance would let them deal with their children’s medical bills and medications and anything else related to caring for them while they are recovering from their injuries.

Lawsuit finance is predicated on a predicted case value; that amount of legal finance is wired or sent by check to the eligible plaintiff in as little as 48 hours. Applying for legal funding is simple and easy and there is absolutely no fee unless the plaintiff wins the case. In fact, if the plaintiff does not win the case, he/she don’t have to pay the money back. If the case qualifies for funding, lawsuit cash is in the plaintiff’s hands within 24-48 hours.
