Trampoline franchise Flip Out could be facing legal action from multiple clients.
Injured customers are reportedly filing lawsuits against the leisure franchise chain both in Australia and UK., according to The Daily Telegraph,
In a statement to the Telegraph Flip Out has strongly defended its safety record.
“We treat safety very seriously and make every endeavour to ensure our guests have a safe and enjoyable time at all of our facilities,” the statement read.
The media outlet reported that a Wollongong bricklayer is the latest person to sue after he dived into a foam pit, breaking his neck in four places at Flip Out, Warrawong on April 17, 2015, causing permanent paralysis and leaving him unable to work.
Slater and Gordon are representing the bricklayer and both have declined to comment.

There are 26 locations in Australia and one more location in WA coming soon. The franchise also exists in Dubai, Germany, India, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Spain, Taiwan and UK.
