In October 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement "Trampoline Safety in Childhood and Adolescence" in which they cautioned against the use of trampolines.  Some of the key points in the report include:

- Trampoline use results in tens of thousands of injuries each year in the United States.  Common injuries include fractures, sprains, strains and contusions.  Improper use can also result in brain, neck or spinal injury.

- Current data on netting and other safety equipment indicates no reduction in injury rates.

- Pediatricians should advise parents and children against recreational trampoline use.

Accordingly, most Massachusetts insurance companies have underwriting guidelines listing trampolines as ineligible exposures.  If you have a trampoline, please contact our office to make sure you are properly insured.
