Their daughter broke the tibia and fibula bones in her leg.


Nevin and Lauren Hofing of Chicago have brought a lawsuit against , an indoor recreational trampoline facility on Howard Street.

Their daughter broke her tibia and fibula, which are two bones in the calf, last November while bouncing on a trampoline there, said their attorney, Antonio M. Romanucci, in a press release.

The injury happened when another person bounced on the same trampoline as the child.

“The defendants should have known that it was unreasonably dangerous to allow multiple individuals to utilize any trampoline in its trampoline park at a given time,” Romanucci said. “Furthermore, the staff at these parks did not enforce their own safety rules.”

An official of Sky High Sports, owned by Jump Niles, told ABC7 the company owns 15 trampoline facilities across the country and gives its employees thorough training about safety.

The Niles Fire Department has responded to 11 calls at Sky High Sports, the Journal & Topics reported.
