When Playtime Goes Wrong: Seeking Compensation for School Ground Injuries
School Injury Lawyers in Alabama
Play structures and school grounds provide a wealth of entertainment, exercise, and social interactions for children. Unfortunately, not all playgrounds are kept up to proper safety standards and some even pose a serious threat to the children who regularly play on them. Groundskeepers, caretakers, facilities managers, and landowners who construct these playgrounds are responsible for keeping them safe to use. Failing to maintain a safe environment has the potential to cause serious injuries to children and adults alike.
If your child has been injured in a playground injury, contact the expert Alabama school ground injury lawyers here at Wettermark & Keith, today. Our professional premises liability lawyers have over 30 years of combined litigation experience handling these types of cases and have the resources needed to make your case a success.
Premises Liability Representation
Injuries sustained on a school ground fall under a section of tort law known as premises liability. Simply stated, landowners are required to keep their grounds reasonably safe to those who may visit their property. If a dangerous condition exists then an owner must also post signage or cordon off that area to prevent it from harming others. When due care is not exercised, serious injuries take place and people can even lose their lives.
Even though falls make up a substantial portion of the number of total injuries incurred on school grounds, faulty or dangerous equipment still poses a serious threat to children. Examples of dangerous conditions, as a result of negligence, that can cause school ground injuries in Alabama to include:
- Broken or damaged play structures
- Unsecured play structures
- Sharp edges
- Pinch points
- Unmaintained school equipment
- Lack of supervision of children at play during school hours
- Failure to post warning/caution signage
- Improper height of school equipment
- Defective school grounds equipment
