Woman sues Gold Coast Park $4Mill over jumping pillow injury
A woman is suing a Gold Coast caravan park for almost $4 million after she injured her leg on an inflatable jumping pillow.
In documents filed in the Supreme Court in Brisbane, Sarah Jayne Cranfield, 35, states she suffered "major and debilitiating disabilities" from the incident in September 2012.
Ms Cranfield says she and her partner were jumping on the inflatable pillow, which is similar to a jumping castle, when he jumped too closely to her and she landed in a depression.
Ms Cranfield fractured her leg and foot, requiring surgery.
Court documents state she suffers from ongoing physical and psychological trauma from the incident, and is no longer able to continue her training to become a registered nurse.
She is suing the Gold Coast Holiday Park and Motel at Helensvale for $3,893,000 after alleging they failed to supervise the pillow, and did not give her or her family instructions about how to jump safely on it.
The damages sought include medical expenses and loss of past and future income.
