Playground Injuries

Las Vegas Premises Liability Lawyer

Parents and children alike love playgrounds. Not only do playgrounds give children a space where they can play, have fun, and exercise — but playgrounds are also a pleasant environment that encourages children’s social interaction. Unfortunately, when playgrounds are improperly maintained or have defective equipment, visitors can suffer severe injuries.

Every parent’s top priority is the well-being of their children, and while playgrounds are generally safe, negligence on the part of property owners and playground equipment can result in tragic accidents. If you or your child have been injured on a playground, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the negligent party.
