My Child Was Seriously Injured On The Playground. Can I Sue?
Playgrounds and parks are popular places to bring children. They offer endless opportunities to learn, exercise and enjoy the outdoors. However, thousands of children suffer serious injuries on playgrounds every year.

Can I Sue The Owner Of The Playground?
The short answer, in many cases, is yes. However, there are many factors that can influence the success of your claim – including, first and foremost, the cause of the accident. Common causes of playground injuries include:
- Unsafe playground equipment
- Negligent supervision of children
- Neglect in the maintenance or upkeep of equipment
- Preventable hazards on the premises
We also must determine who is legally responsible for the premises to find out whom to sue.
