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.

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.

If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would - 5 stars is not enough. Ernie aided myself & family with my mother’s wrongful death case. He didn’t care that she was 100 years old. Ernie is professional, trustworthy, and most importantly, he knows the law. He answered his phone every time I called with questions and he always had the answers. I interviewed at least 4 different attorneys and there was no doubt that Ernie is above and beyond them all. If you are in need of an attorney within the realm of his expertise, I highly recommend Ernie Trichler.- Sandy L

She not only made sure that I was taken care of but also that I was treated like family and she walked me through every step, ensuring that I was properly represented and didn't have to struggle with my bills for all my specialized doctors and care. I couldn't recommend a better firm to take care of you in your moment of need!- Nicole Clark

Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.- Cullen Murphy
I have to say that I am very pleased with the Trichler Law Center. Ernie handled my case in a very timely and professional manner. He kept me informed every step of way, I was very IMPRESSED in the way he worked with the defense attorneys to get me a very satisfactory settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for a job well done!!- Donnie
