Child Injured in a Playground Accident – Indianapolis Injury Law
December 10, 2015
The short answer, as so often is the case in legal matters, is “maybe.” Playground accidents injure thousands of children every year, sometimes seriously. Whether or not you have a legal claim as a result of your child’s injuries depends on whether the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. There are many potential ways a playground accident could occur because of negligence, and Indianapolis personal injury attorney Merry Fountain will be able to help you determine whether you have a claim.
In Indianapolis, regarding injury law and finding an tough attorney or lawyer to fight for you,
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), emergency departments treat over 200,000 under 14 each year for injuries sustained on playgrounds. The injuries that kids sustain in playground accidents can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries. Almost all of us can remember falling and scraping a knee as a child, most likely due to our own clumsiness or childhood recklessness. Sometimes, however, these accidents are caused by an unreasonably dangerous condition that was caused by the negligence of a party responsible for your child or the condition of the playground. Some of the more common causes of playground accidents include:
Improperly installed equipment
Lack of guardrails on equipment
Debris or other hazards on playground
Improper playground construction
Rusty swing chains or slides
There are many other ways that negligence could potentially lead to a playground injury. Attorney Merry Fountain will be able to review the circumstances of your case and determine whether you have a claim. After a playground accident, it is important for victims to document as much information about the incident as possible. If your child’s accident was the result of a dangerous condition or hazard at the playground, take photographs if at all possible. Finally, be sure to seek immediate medical attention for any injuries that may be serious.
