Dangerous Playground Equipment


Dangerous and defective playground equiptment

Defective Swing Sets, Jungle Gyms, and Playground Equipment

The attorneys at Schiffman Firm know that when you bring your child to a playground, you are expecting that the equipment is safe and that it is appropriate for a child to use. However, this is too often not the case.

Our attorneys have successfully pursued cases on behalf of children and their families who have been injured by playground equipment. Sometimes, the dangerous condition is caused by the design of the equipment itself such as when the child is left stranded at the top of the equipment with no safe designated way to come down. Sometimes the danger is caused by the lack of proper maintenance of the equipment and a child can be injured on rough metal or bolts that are not secured. There is also a danger that the equipment is not situated on proper surfacing material and that the correct amount of ground cover is not present.

The law provides that certain parties such as school districts, municipalities and other government agencies are immune from being sued in many instances. Many times when a child is hurt on playground equipment, the family is faced with a school district or township pleading that it is immune from being sued. It takes attorneys with the right knowledge and experience to counter these arguments. The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have almost a century of expertise in the practice of law including the pursuit of cases against the manufacturers, sellers, and owners of playground equipment.
