Tampa Playground Injury Attorneys
Has Your Child Been Injured On The Playground?
Playground falls and accidents account for approximately 200,000 injuries
to children annually. These injuries occur at all types of playgrounds,
at schools, public parks, and private areas, resulting in a wide range
of injuries, from broken bones, head trauma, brain injuries, spinal injuries,
and more. Ensuring that playground equipment is safe for children is the
responsibility of whoever owns the equipment and is providing it for the
use of children. This can be a school district, city, county, or other
governmental or private owner.
Unfortunately, after assessing more than 3,000 playgrounds in all 50 states,
the National Program for Playground Safety has rated most playgrounds
with an average C rating, taking into consideration equipment maintenance,
adult supervision, and a variety of other safety considerations. This
means that many playgrounds have considerable deficiencies in the safety
department which can lead to accidents and injuries for children.
If your child has been injured at a playground in the Tampa area due to
negligent safety factors, we recommend that you contact our firm to speak
to a Tampa personal injury attorney. We can review the situation and circumstances
of the accident and injuries for liability issues. You may be able to
file an injury claim or lawsuit for damages against those responsible
for the situation.
Contributing Factors to Playground Injuries
Many factors can contribute to accidents and injuries at playgrounds, including
improper surfaces where children jump or land, poorly maintained equipment,
things that stick up out of surfaces or rails that can cause trips or
other injuries, sharp edges, platforms without guardrails, and equipment
that is not recommended for playgrounds.
