Application Excercise 3i

Question 1

Bounce would owe its customers a duty to provide safe trampolining facilities in premises that were fit for the purpose. This would include ensuring that equipment was safe and in working order, that there were adequate numbers of staff who were properly trained, and that the facility was not overcrowded to the detriment of customer safety.

Question 2

Bounce avoided liability for the plaintiff’s injury by placing warning signs at its premises. These signs warned customers, including the plaintiff, that jumping on the trampolines attracted a risk of injury, and that customers engaged in this activity at their own risk.

Question 3

The plaintiff voluntarily accepted that by jumping on Bounce’s trampolines he ran the risk of incurring an injury, and that Bounce would not be liable to compensate him for this injury.
