09 Jul Inflatables Insurance For Your Peace of Mind
They’re colorful and fun — and potentially dangerous. Inflatable bounce houses are making the news all too often these days with stories of runaway houses with kids in tow. In 2016, a little girl was killed when a sudden strong wind blew away the bouncy castle she was playing on. That same year, 10 people were injured when the bounce house blew more than 30 yards across a football field and into a fence during a school carnival. As inflatables become more popular, injuries become more prevalent. Thus, inflatables insurance becomes more of a necessity.
From 2000-2015, there were 64 bounce house accidents caused by wind, resulting in 271 injuries and 10 deaths.* Inflatable slides and waterslides, mechanical bulls and wrestling and boxing rings have their own share of injuries, including ankle, knee or leg injuries, head or neck injuries, and injuries from collisions with other jumpers.
Renting an inflatable for your kid’s birthday party? Think twice, because the manufacturer, installer and even the property owner can be held liable for injury — even if your guests signed a waiver beforehand. But there is something you can do to protect against costly litigation — specialty liability inflatables insurance from XINSURANCE.

XINSURANCE provides customized specialty insurance for ever-changing risks and liability issues, including property and casualty insurance — and coverage for inflatables.
