CHARLESTON — A family is suing a trampoline park, alleging their minor son was injured while at the facility after fraudulently signing a release.

David and Tabbatha Perdue, as parents and legal guardian of B.P., a minor, filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Fitness, Fun and Freedom Inc., dba Sky Zone.

The suit states the plaintiffs' minor child was a guest at the defendant's on April 2, 2018. The minor was asked if he had completed a release form which he said he had, but was not made to show any identification proving he was 18 or over. The minor allegedly had used his mother's information to fill in an online release form which did not require a physical signature, as his parents did not know he was going to the defendant facility. The defendant allegedly failed to give any information to the minor about safety and, while the child was doing some backflips, he was caused to land on a ledge and broke both of his legs at the shin. 

The defendant is accused of negligence and negligent hiring.

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Jason Foster of The Segal Law Firm in Charleston.

The case has been assigned to Judge Jennifer Bailey.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number 19-C-278
