Settlement Child hurt Bounce House Inflatable in NC

Settlement Child hurt Bounce House Inflatable in NC by Joe Tunstall and Bruce Daughtry of O'Malley Tunstall, PLLC.

A recent personal injury settlement for a child injured  in an inflatable while at a bounce house represented by Bruce Daughtry and Joe Tunstall of O'Malley Tunstall was listed in NC Lawyers weekly.  Joe and Bruce used an expert engineer to prove that a company using inflatables have very specific requirements to comply with the law which we alleged were violated resulting in a $250,000.00 settlement for our client.

Our office is currently investigating similar cases with serious injuries to children at bounce house and inflatables.  

To operate an inflatable in North Carolina you must comply with  Amusement Device Safety Act of North Carolina. N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 95-111.1.  This act was created as The General Assembly finds that although most amusement devices are free from defect and operated in a safe manner, those which are not impose a substantial probability of serious and preventable injury to the public. Protection of the public from exposure to such unsafe conditions and the prevention of injuries is in the best interest and welfare of the people of the State.

The Act states that "no person shall operate, permit to be operated or use any device subject to the provisions of this Article if such person knows or reasonably should know that such operation or use will expose the public to an unsafe condition which is likely to result in personal injury or property damage."  N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 95-111.9 

The North Carolina law also requires that the operator notify of any injury.  Once notification takes place, the Commissioner, without delay, shall after notification and determination that an occurrence involving injury or damage has occurred, shall make a complete and thorough investigation of the occurrence.   Once that notification has taken place no person, following an occurrence  shall operate, attempt to operate, use or move or attempt to move such device or part thereof, without the approval of the Commissioner, unless so as to prevent injury to any person or persons. N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 95-111.10.

These bounce houses, such as the one in our case, are being created by people without the knowledge to do so safely.  Safety is a primary condition anytime you have children involved.

Hiring the correct experts, such as our engineer in this case, helps identify the issues early and get the best results for our clients such as this Settlement Child hurt Bounce House Inflatable in NC.  We also used a structured settlement expert and a visual medical illustrationist. 

Give us a call to assist you with your personal injury case.
