Children may be prone to an occasional playground injury, but when a child suffers a preventable one caused by negligence, it may warrant compensation. These are common types of injuries in relation to negligence:
A lack of playground maintenance can lead to hazardous objects remaining on the ground, possibly increasing the likelihood of a slip and fall accident in Atlanta.
Defects in playground equipment can lead to lawsuits against the manufacturers of the inherently dangerous playground equipment.
Without proper supervision, children may engage in activities that can lead to falling from heights. When a fall from heights occurs, a child can suffer serious injuries ranging from broken bones to a head injury.
It can be difficult and time-consuming to investigate and prove your child’s playground injury was caused by negligence. An Atlanta playground/school injury attorney familiar with these kinds of cases will have the resources to investigate the incident, as well as the ability to determine fault and the worth of your child’s case.
There are a number of ways in which a teacher or supervisor might be found to have been negligent while working on or near a school’s playground. A few examples include:
These actions may constitute negligence but will depend on the exact scenario in which the child’s injury occurred. Schools and playground operators owe a duty of care to the children and are responsible for protecting them from foreseeable dangers on the premises. Learn more by speaking to an Atlanta negligent security attorney.
A lawyer has the ability to immediately begin a thorough investigation into the accident causing the injury to your child and the financial resources to collect the necessary evidence to prove negligence. These cases tend to be complex as there may be multiple defendants. Hiring an attorney to handle the case for you will alleviate your family from the stress of building a strong case and it will be your best shot at holding the responsible party accountable.
As young children cannot yet protect themselves, it is important that the person you choose to advocate for them will protect their rights and their families. Our attorneys at The Simon Law Firm have decades of experience representing injured victims and acquiring successful resolutions to their cases.
