Defective Playground Equipment Could Lead to Accidents

Sometimes it's the playground equipment that presents hazards. Schools or cities that don't inspect and maintain equipment on a regular basis could increase the risk of injuries. But it could also be the manufacturing of the product that’s the problem.

A failure to follow manufacturer recommendations for installation is one example of negligence that might lead to an accident.

Another premises liability situation that might lead to injuries is when the equipment (or parts):

  • become loose;
  • rust; or
  • deteriorate.

Also, improper spacing could cause a child's head to get stuck. Further, ramps and platforms should have barriers or guardrails; without them, it increases the risk of a child falling.

Playground accidents may be more likely to occur with a flawed design or faulty playground equipment. If this is what led to a child's serious injuries, parents may file a claim against the liable party, which may include the playground owner or the equipment manufacturer. An attorney can determine who is liable and help file the claim. Call Jason R. Schultz in Peachtree City today at 404-474-0804.
