School and Park Injuries: Playground Accidents
Schools and daycare centers are thought of as safe places to send our children to learn and expand their knowledge. Unfortunately, there are many avoidable accidents that occur in the playground. Playground and gym injuries are quite common and should not be overlooked. These injuries could have long-term effects on a child's physical, emotional, and cognitive development. Schools are responsible for the safety of our children and to properly supervise and protect the children. Often times, school administrators violate this responsibility and negligently cause injuries to children that can be avoided.
The school injury lawyers at Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP will act quickly to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. If your child has been injured at school, speak with an experienced attorney at Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP. We have proven experience with public, private and charter schools.
Aside from poor supervision, we have pursued claims against playground designers, as well as the manufacturers of playground equipment. Special design needs must be considered for the age of the user. Younger bodies have less physical strength and are more susceptible to serious injury. If you believe your child has suffered an injury due to defectively designed, built or maintained gym or playground equipment, please contact us for a free evaluation.
