Should he get the money?

This might sound bad but it’s just my opinion regarding the Park teens lawsuit.

I kinda hope he wins some of the money (like $10K) but not all. Definitely not the full $17 mil I think it is. They already have a Go Fund me. In that Go fund me they updated saying they will be making another Florida Go fund me for when they are there. Now this lawsuit. Like enough already. I get it that there are alot of unexpected medical bills but the kid did do this on his own. The signs clearly state ” No flips” plus he signed a waiver. I think I would feel bad if they were not only out looking for a payday. Maybe if they were trying to get new regulations for these types of jump parks or have them closed down permanently but they are only looking for money.

I don’t think these places are safe and would never allow my kids to go there. I have teens so they are not interested anyways.

  1. Weren’t there signs that said “dive in!”???

  2. He’ll get a settlement. A concrete floor was a major safety hazard. Even if someone jumped in bottom down and hit that floor with their ass it would of broke their tailbone. It was a accident waiting to happen.

  3. Here’s a question. If the facility made changes after this incident, to make the area safer, isn’t it fair to say it was unsafe before the incident? If you think yes, then there is a finding of some negligence against the facility.

  4. I don’t think he should get a dime.
    #1: he signed a waiver
    #2: he broke safety rules (by jumping headfirst into the pit)

    He doesn’t deserve a penny

  5. Let me ask you this. If he was 10 years old and this happened, should he get the money?

    • So if a child does the same thing, he should get a settlement? I don’t get your reasoning. Unsafe is unsafe, regardless of who it happened to. And a waiver really means nothing of your paralyzed due to unsafe equipment, if that ends up being the case.

      [1]
    • If this was a child, wouldn’t you expect equipment to be safe, even if you signed a waiver? The issue here is safety, not age. Like I said before, if they determine unsafe equipment was a factor, damn straight he should get paid

      [1]
    • Were you there? Because you don’t if it was his negligence, or theirs.

      [1]
    • Damn. Too bad he didn’t. He’d have 2 broken legs instead. Your just arguing for the sake of arguing. Bye

      How can you even compare that? A 10 year olds brain is a lot less developed than an 18 year olds brain. At 18 years old they should know well enough to follow the rules. Rules are in place for a reason. That’s why a 10 year old is not legally allowed to sign a waiver….

    • Ramona Corless, a waiver is signed to free the company of liability should you hurt yourself….espeically of you hurt yourself breaking the rules.

      Ever heard the term “at your own risk”

    • Tanya Leanne Tanya Leanne says:

      How do you determine unsafe equipment? Couldn’t everything in life be unsafe equipment? If you use a car the wrong way, you can kill yourself. If you skateboard you can kill yourself. Every single thing in life has a risk if it’s misused. If he’d read the waiver or any of the signs posted, he’d have known not to jump in head first. He blatantly disregarded not only the Rules, but common sense as well. Not saying I don’t feel bad for him, but asking for money for your own negligence is a bit of a stretch.

    • Tanya Leanne Tanya Leanne says:

      And if the jump park allowed a 10 year old to sign his own waiver and jump unattended, then Yeah, I’d say it would hold some responsibility for not ensuring that their guests were old enough to make calculated decisions. If you can’t figure out at age 18 how to jump properly in a foam pit that literally says ” jump feet first” then that’s your own problem.

      The issue is not whether or not the equpiments safe, it IS safe IF USED PROPERLY.

    • Exactly my point. Just to argue. Lol. Get a life

    • Tanya Leanne Tanya Leanne says:

      I’m saying there would be different circumstances to consider. It’s not even possible to judge that without all the facts. So if thousands of people use the equipment properly and there’s no injuries, then one comes in, uses it in an unsafe manner, disobeying the rules, he should be entitled to an insanely large sum of money? Lol get real.

    • Ramona Corless, not disagreeing about the unsafe equipment, however had this kid followed the rules he most likely do Not be paralyzed…..its naive to think a park where people.bouncr around each other won’t produce an injury or two. That’s the nature of the activity. The rules are there to mitigate and attempt to prevent injury… And jumping on head first is the reason this kid is paralyzed.

      [-1]
    • Ask anyone who has broken their neck and become paralyzed they will tell you when it happened it felt like they hit a slab of concrete I’m not convinced this man actually hit concrete I think he broke his neck by landing funny and is trying to get a payday outta it

  6. I don’t think it was the flip that got him hurt, it was the pit not being deep enough and having a cement bottom. I think he should get some compensation as he will be paralyzed for a long time, if not his whole life. Yes he did sign a waiver, but the park should be somewhat responsible for not making it safe to use. If he jumped in feet first, would he have broken his legs? I agree with Nicolette Braun, it was an accident waiting to happen and it could’ve happened to anyone.

  7. I broke my leg at the Shaw conference center a couple years ago at a concert. I was in the mosh pit, it got rough and I got hurt.

    Not once did I even consider sueing even though the tile floor there is A death trap once a few drinks are spilled on it.

    I was off work for 6 months….amd even now, My leg cannot be fixed. It will remain broken and my knee will remain weak and vulnerable for the rest of my life. And I’m in construction. Lol

    Even then I Wouldn’t think to blame my own actions on anyone else, nor expect the venue to pay for the losses my injury caused.

    We make choices in life and have consequences. If this kid was fighting only to shut it down or make it safer than od stand behind him. But looking for a payout cause you made a very stupid and tragic decision is something i wont stand behind.

    • What happened to you has nothing to do with this story.

      [1]
    • This isn’t even the same as this guys case

    • Lol Cryslin Anne Temporal, I’m using my own personal experience as an example of how a bad decision can affect your entire life. And unfortunately the only one that should be blamed for my injury was me. THAT was my point

    • Stephanie Tooke, I was at a public event in an area known to be rough on a floor that was slippery as fuck.

      I could have EASILY blamed Shaw for the condition of that floor because that did, in fact, play a part in how I got hurt. But I didn’t because 1. A ticket is an automatic waiver and 2. I CHOSE to stay in that area when I knew the floor wad dangerously slick.

      You cant see the similarities in the two stories? Or because I wasn’t paralyzed it doesn’t count?

      It’s really shitty this kid got that hurt. But he chose to break the rules. He chose to ignore warnings and I also understand he was in a kids area…. so I’m sorry, he is responsible. I’m Not saying he deserved it I’m saying that it was an accident that was avoidable had he played by the rules.

  8. Jen Thompson Jen Thompson says:

    He did not jump in head first and the family is most definitely working on changing the regulations and safety requirements of these type of places so that this doesn’t happen to someone else.

  9. Clinton Kirk Clinton Kirk says:

    If he followed the rules and the park was not negligent, sure. But if it appears he broke policies against going in headfirst, who knows? I would not be shocked if alcohol or substances were a factor. The whole thing seems fishy to me. I guess the details will all come out. Only the lawyers will get rich.

  10. He’s gonna lose read the fine print

    He signed a very lengthy waiver before he set foot in. He won’t get a dime
