Mom sues Jumping World for $1M after teen breaks foot

By David Yates | Mar 12, 2015

A mother is seeking more than $1 million in damages from Jumping World USA after her son broke his foot at the indoor trampoline park.

Individually and on behalf of Dalton Brook, Shanna Brock filed her suit March 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, on Feb. 17 Dalton went to Jumping World with is his sister and friends. Although the park requires youth under the age of 18 to have a parent/guardian sign a waiver, Dalton was allegedly not required to present ID and signed his own wavier.

Jumping World displays signs stating, “Jump at your own risk.”

Not long after Dalton entered the park, he broke his left foot, the suit states.

Aside from failing to check Dalton’s ID, Shanna accuses Jumping World of negligently allowing too many jumpers at its park at one time and negligently failing to supply enough employees to supervise the area.

The suit does not state if Shanna knew if Dalton was going to Jumping World or what she was doing at the time of the incident.

The plaintiffs seek to recover damages for alleged pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of earnings, medical expenses and impairment.

Beaumont attorney Cade Bernsen represents the plaintiffs.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. D196-819
