Bungee jumping accidents can lead to serious injuries, such as spinal cord
injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, internal hemorrhaging,
paralysis, and other severe trauma. While bungee jumping is a popular
tourist activity in Hawaii, it is not strongly regulated by the government.
However, there are certain safety protocols and regulations placed upon
bungee jumping providers that, if not followed, may result in injuries
or even death to participants. If you have been injured while bungee jumping,
you may be able to file a lawsuit against the operator or company for
breaching these regulations.
Understanding Laws Regarding Bungee Jumping in Hawaii
By law, bungee jumping operators must have a permit and renew it annually.
Furthermore, they must have all their equipment thoroughly inspected,
and they must exercise a reasonable amount of care when providing services
to customers. In Hawaii, there are certain restrictions placed on bungee
jumping in Zone 5 of the national forest.
Many bungee jumping providers make customers sign a liability release form,
which limits your ability to pursue compensation for an injury. However,
if your bungee jumping operator failed to inspect the equipment or follow
safety protocols, you may be able to file a lawsuit. Furthermore, if the
operator let you jump in unreasonably hazardous conditions, or in unreasonably
dangerous areas, you may be entitled to a settlement even if you signed
a liability release form.
