    Playground Accidents

    Looking back on our childhood, most of us have fond memories of times spent at playgrounds.  Sometimes we got cuts or bruises along the way but that’s what we expected when we were playing.  What is not expected is when our children leave a playground with a severe and serious injury such as a bone fracture, dislocation, severe head injury and even in some cases, lose their lives.

    Our kids enjoy playgrounds because they are fun.  Millions of children throughout the United States use playgrounds throughout the year.  With so many young people visiting playgrounds, injuries do happen. The persons or entity who owns and/or maintains the playground have a legal responsibility to maintain the playground with due care as well as to follow the rules for safety, which have been established by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

    The CPSC tells us there are hazard patterns associated with playgrounds related to accidents.  Playground hazards that can lead to playground accidents and cause injuries often involve:

    • Unsafe or defective playground equipment;
    • Unsafe maintenance of playground equipment;
    • Unsafe surfaces beneath playground equipment;
    • Inappropriate height of playground equipment;
    • Inadequate supervision of children; and,
    • Failing to post proper warnings or signage advising of the risk of serious injury while using the playground facility.
