Why Trampolines are a Bouncy Proposition

Why Trampolines are a Bouncy Proposition

March 22, 2023

Who doesn't like the weightless fun of a good trampoline jump?

Insurance companies, that's who.

Trampolines are notorious in the insurance industry for taking a great quote and tossing a bucket of lukewarm coffee over it. Some companies won't even cover homes with these bouncy frames outside.

Why? Check out these gravity-induced facts:

  • Ouch-o-lines - Trampolines cause injuries - at least 100,000 per year.
  • Not Kidding - Over 90% of injuries are kids under 16 years old.
  • Free Falling - Less than half of injuries involve falling off of the trampoline.
  • Small Problems - Younger kids are more likely to become injured than older kids - up to 14x more.

These numbers are the reason insurance companies go running for the hills. If you're thinking about getting a trampoline, talk to an agent first.
