Atlanta School Injury Attorneys

Can You Sue if Your Child Is Injured in a Schoolyard Accident?

As the weather begins to warm, children look forward to enjoying their recess time in the schoolyard. It is a fantastic place for children to socialize, spend time outdoors, and get some exercise. However, the schoolyard can also be a dangerous place. Typically, they are filled with large, complex equipment that can cause serious injuries to children if not properly assembled or maintained.

When an injury occurs due to negligent design, installation, or faulty equipment, the families of the injured children may be able to receive compensation by filing a personal injury claim. If your loved one has suffered injuries while in the schoolyard, the best way to get the recovery you deserve is to schedule a consultation with the experienced Atlanta school injury lawyers at Shane Smith Law as soon as possible.

How Can Injuries Occur in the Schoolyard?

Accidents in the school yard are quite common, though the vast majority are minor and will not result in any legal claims. Many accidents, however, can result in serious injuries that require expensive medical attention. If these accidents are caused by negligence or unreasonably dangerous conditions, the families of the victim may be able to get deserved compensation from the parties responsible.

Some of the possible causes of injuries on the schoolyard include:

  • Becoming tangled on slides or swings
  • Broken equipment
  • Improperly maintained grounds
  • Falls
  • Equipment tipping over
  • Inadequately protected location

These are just some of the possible ways children can be injured in the school yard, and there are many more ways that these serious injuries can occur. An experienced attorney from Shane Smith Law can help you determine if your family is entitled to recover damages for an injury sustained in the school yard.
