What To Do After Your Child Has Been Injured On A Playground
When you leave your child in the care of a daycare provider, you expect your child to be safe. Unfortunately, many children are injured in this setting. Although there are many types of injuries that occur, falls are the most prevalent form of injury. The lack of supervision or proactive child care could contribute to child injuries. In addition, a child injury can occur from any number of negligent reasons including accidental child poisoning, physical child abuse, and mental child abuse.
We Handle Only Personal Injury
Child injuries resulting from accidental poisoning occur from medicines and cleaning products. It is the responsibility of the daycare provider to keep dangerous products in high cabinets with child-proof locks out of the reach of children to avoid an accidental child poisoning.
If your child was injured at a day care center, our injury attorneys can help you file a claim. We advocate vigorously for our clients to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and permanent injury.
Causes Of Accidents
Certainly you expect a school to be a safe well-supervised environment for your children. If your child was injured because the students were not being properly supervised or were allowed to be doing something dangerous, school liability may result. When teachers, administrators, and other school staff members fail in their obligation to keep children safe from harm, both physically and mentally, they need to be held accountable.
In addition, poorly maintained buildings can create hazards on school premises. Stairs that are badly in need of repair can cause a serious fall. Old chairs still in use after many years can collapse.
If your child was injured at school, our personal injury lawyers can help you file a claim. We advocate vigorously for our clients to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and permanent injury.
Common Playground Hazards
When you take your child to a playground, you have their best interest at heart. Children can be seriously hurt on slides, swings, and climbing equipment due to the failure to supervise activities on the playgrounds. In addition, the playground equipment may be unsafe or not properly maintained.
Common hazards include swings that are too close together, climbing equipment that is too tall, dangerous equipment such as chains, and jagged edges that can catch children’s clothing.
