Know Your Rights If A Child Is Injured In A School Or Playground Accident

We all understand that children sometimes get hurt playing too roughly in school, on playgrounds or while participating in sports. Minor school and playground injuries are inevitable with kids. However, when the injury occurs because of unsupervised roughhousing, bullying by other students or unsafe playground equipment, the sense of injustice can be too much for parents to handle.

You always hope that your kids are reasonably safe, but when the negligence of school officials results in a serious injury to your child, your child may be entitled to money damages. Contact us to learn more.

Recreational Sports Injuries

When you or your child signed up to play in a recreational sports league, you may have been required to sign a health waiver saying that the league organizers were not responsible for injuries. These types of waivers are common, but they do not always release the league organizers from their responsibility to ensure that playing conditions and equipment are safe for public use. When your child has been injured playing on a recreational sports team, you won't know if you have a personal injury claim unless you speak with a qualified attorney. Please don't let the waiver you signed prevent you from pursuing damages.
