The jury awards a lady in Indiana $ 96,000 for YMCA bounce home accidents

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) – A jury has awarded nearly $ 96,000 in damages to a northwest girl who was injured while playing on a springboard at a YMCA in 2018.

After a four-day civil trial against Valparaiso Family YMCA, the Porter County jury awarded the girl $ 95,833 in damages on Thursday.

Attorney Kenneth J. Allen, whose office filed the lawsuit on behalf of the girl, says he and the child’s family “believe the jury did the right thing”.

The Times of Northwest reports the Valparaiso girl was 2 years old when she was injured while playing in an inflatable diving board at the YMCA in August 2018.
