If your child has been injured in a playground, your child may be entitled to compensation. Negligence is not always apparent and as injury lawyers, we can determine if the accident was caused due to the negligence of another party.
The area of playground injury law has changed considerably in recent years. While the basis of the claim still lies in Occupier’s Liability or Premises Liability, it often interplays with negligent supervision allegations and legal principles.
Parents, teachers and lawyers are now more aware than ever that playground accidents are often the result of poor playground construction or design or as a result of lack of supervision. There are ways in which schools, school boards, municipalities and private schools can make playgrounds much safer for children. Many of these changes are inexpensive and still allow children the ability to use playground structures constructively and freely. We have handled cases of child injury on playgrounds where the allegations centered on poor and negligent design, lack of maintenance and/or lack of supervision.
In many cases, accidents are simply accidents and there is no one to be sued. As parents, teachers and supervisors, we cannot prevent every accident. In other cases however, a child is injured due to the negligence of another. When children are injured in playground accidents, it is often school negligence that is the root cause. We investigate the reason(s) why an accident occurs and if a party or parties are at fault, we pursue that party or parties on behalf of our clients. We have succeeded in all school and playground negligence cases we have handled to obtain compensation for our clients.
