A nice day at a local playground can turn into a tragic one due to a variety of factors.
You’ve probably seen memes about how kids don’t play outside anymore and are only interested in video games. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Young people play on playgrounds every day. Either at their school during recess or with their friends and family at a community park. However, sometimes these playgrounds are poorly maintained, have defective equipment, or have negligent supervision of children. These factors can all play a role in a child suffering from an otherwise preventable injury.
A child can be injured under a multitude of circumstances while visiting a public or school playground. Some examples of legal liability include:
Lack of supervision over an injured child by a teacher, caretaker, or school employee
A school or city employee failing to maintain playground equipment
Defective playground equipment due to negligence by the manufacturer
Playground injury cases are complex legal affairs. You need an experienced playground injury attorney on your side to establish whether the injury was predictable, who is legally at fault for the injury happening, and the grounds on which the injury occurred. Loutos Law is here to protect your child’s rights and advocate on their behalf.
Injuries On A Public Playground
If your child was injured while using equipment on a public playground and the injury was due to defective playground equipment, the organization that constructed the playground equipment may be held liable. Serious injury can also result from failure to maintain public playground equipment. Equipment naturally degrades from weather conditions, age, and damages from usage and they need to be maintained. Determining fault or legal liability depends on establishing the entity responsible for maintaining playground equipment. A playground injury attorney from Loutos Law can investigate the case and determine who is at fault.
