Should we contact a lawyer, or is this a case of "stuff happens"?
About 3 weeks ago we were at SkyZone for a youth event with my church. For those who don't know, SkyZone is a national franchise where they essentially have large numbers of trampolines, set up all together, where you can jump around. Google it for more info.
Anyway, I was there with my 4 and 7 year olds. Within 5-10 minutes of getting into the jumping area, my 4yo broke his leg. We didn't actually know it was broken until the following day - we had thought/hoped he just twisted his knee.
Let me start by saying that I'm not the type of person who believes in frivolous lawsuits. But this is going to cost us hundreds of dollars out of our pocket, even with health insurance. So here's the facts:
1) SkyZone makes everyone sign a waiver before jumping. This would seem to limit our rights, but I do know that a business can't use a waiver to cover up negligence.
