Playground Accidents Can Lead to Liability Claims

Exploring and playing are large parts of growing up, and as any parent knows, part of that process involves the playground. Kids love climbing on the monkey bars and playing on the swings, but what happens if your child gets seriously hurt while on the playground?

A number of factors may be responsible for playground injuries. Trip hazards, improper protective surfaces, inadequate equipment spacing and protrusion hazards are just a few. It’s possible that several parties may be held liable if your child was injured on the playground. Negligence may be proven if a personal injury attorney can show that a party failed to properly maintain the playground when they had a duty to do so. On the other hand, a product liability claim may make sense if there was a problem with the equipment’s design or installation.
