Founder and Managing Attorney
I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.
Every year, emergency rooms treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger due to playground accident injuries. If your child is involved in a playground accident, it’s important to consult a medical professional immediately. Even if your child seems fine, they could have an internal injury or a concussion. After having your child examined for injuries, it’s important to consult a playground accident lawyer. If your child has sustained playground injuries, the Dixon Injury Firm understands that this should be taken seriously.
What Can Be Done to Prevent Playground Accidents
While playgrounds are a lot less dangerous than they used to be, they are still prone to accidents. For example, high monkey bars, tall rock climbing walls, and wobbly or rusty swings. It is essential to look out for these playground hazards that can cause serious playground injuries.
- Potential trip hazards such as rocks, branches or loose play mats
- Sharp metal edges on equipment, or platforms without guardrails
- Overcrowded play areas to avoid a child being hit by a swing or seesaw
- Concrete surfaces. The playground should have soft mulch, sand or wood chips underneath
- Children playing on age-inappropriate equipment. Children under 4 shouldn’t play on ladders or other climbing equipment, and shouldn’t play on other equipment unsupervised
