Lexington Playground Injury Attorney

40+ Years of Collective Experience. Millions Recovered.

Playgrounds give kids opportunities for the active outdoor play and social interaction that they want and need. Play equipment is also available to many children at their schools and day care centers, as well as in their own back yards and at the homes of friends and neighbors. While children are often able to play safely at playgrounds and at the other places where they are able to use play equipment, some play sessions result in injuries that are much more serious than the bumps and bruises that are typically associated with active children. Approximately fifteen children die every year from playground injuries and over two hundred thousand more are injured. Learning more about playground injuries is one way that parents and caregivers can help their children to stay safe while they play.

Types of Playground Injuries

About half of the injuries that happen at playgrounds are severe injuries like dislocations, concussions, fractures, and internal injuries. Many of these serious injuries happen at public parks and playgrounds, but they can also occur at school and day care playgrounds. When it comes to fatal accidents like falls or strangulations that involve playing equipment, seventy percent of play equipment-related deaths happen at the child's home, or the home of a friend, neighbor, or relative.

How Playground Injuries Happen

Playgrounds are safe when children are supervised by responsible adults who can notice when a safety concern is present and intervene in such a way that the children can continue playing safely. Sometimes, parents who accompany their children to the playground are able to provide a higher degree of supervision than adults who care for children in school and daycare settings because of the number of children that the latter must supervise at the same time. In situations where supervision is inadequate for any reason, children may use play equipment in an unsafe manner, resulting in injury.

Play equipment must be inspected for the following:

  • Weak or wobbly play structures
  • Rusty playground equipment
  • Splintering wood
  • Exposed nails
  • Inadequately cushioned fall areas

Sometimes, children can be injured at the playground even when they use the play equipment properly. Play equipment must be inspected and maintained because it is exposed to the elements.
