School and Park Injuries: Playground Accidents

New York School Injury Lawyers

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 underestimated. These injuries could have long-term effects on a child’s physical, emotional, and cognitive development.

At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo Plotkin & Hellman LLP, our New York school injury attorneys are highly skilled and have decades of experience litigating cases. We take the responsibility of pursuing compensation on behalf of an injured child very seriously.

Has a school failed in its duty to look after your child? Call (212) 684-1880 to start pursuing legal action.

Playground design & Injury liability

Aside from poor supervision, we have pursued claims against playground designers, as well as the manufacturers of playground equipment. Younger bodies have less physical strength and are more susceptible to serious injury, meaning special design needs must be considered for the age of the user.

Common Playground Injuries:

  • Broken bones, fractures, and dislocations from high falls
  • Head, back, and spinal cord injuries from rough play with other children
  • Concussions and head trauma from reckless behavior
  • Cuts and lacerations from falling on pavement

Justice for injured children

Hearing your child has been injured at school can understandably cause severe emotional distress. Whether the fault lies with a negligent teacher or inept playground designer, our New York school injury lawyers are ready to pursue these cases and fight for the family’s deserved restitution.
