On 26 June 2009 there was a judgement passed down by the Supreme Court of NSW in relation to a 10 year old boy falling from a bunk bed while on a sleepover at a friend’s house.

The plaintiff was awarded the sum of $853,396.

For us the message is clear that we need to comply with the Australian Standard for bunk beds and if we don’t then we leave ourselves exposed to risk.
