A number of families in Scotland could seek to claim no win, no fee compensation for trampoline accidents sustained at an activity centre in Midlothian, following revelations that more than 100 people sustained injuries there during the first three weeks of its operation.

The trampoline park only opened on 23 January but, already, a number of visitors - the majority of whom are children - have sustained injuries that include a broken neck, a broken back and various other broken bones.

However, bosses at the trampoline park defended its record, saying that its accident rate was "better than the industry norm", with 25,662 jumpers at the site sustaining 102 injuries over the short period of its operation, meaning there was only a "0.39% incident rate".

Those affected by injury are likely to be less sanguine regarding the figures, with one woman, whose husband broke his neck, saying that first aid at the centre was "non-existent". She was particularly critical of the response that was made to her husband's accident, saying that her husband was moved by "two young boys" despite the fact he had clearly suffered a neck injury.

"I would never go back to the centre, it was a complete disaster for us," said the mother of a child who suffered a broken ankle while using a trampoline at the centre.

A spokesperson for Midlothian Council said, "Once we became aware that this business was operating, our inspectors visited the premises on 6 February and gave advice on the company's health and safety obligations."

The council also said that it had been "made aware of a number of allegations of injuries".

So far there have been no reports of any of those affected seeking to make no win, no fee compensation claims.
