Injuries To Children
Playground Liability Accidents Attorneys
Figeroux & Associates are experienced playground accident attorneys. In recent years this area of the law has grown in large part due to an awareness by parents, teachers and attorneys that there are certain things a school system, municipality or private school can do to make the playgrounds where children play much safer without incurring an enormous expense or inhibiting the children to express themselves. Closer scrutiny has uncovered negligent design, maintenance and supervision of play that now, with the proper understanding and insight, can be reduced or avoided. However, children still get seriously injured in playground accidents, and often, school negligence is the root cause. Let the experienced lawyers at Figeroux & Associates discuss your child’s accident with you free of charge.
New York City School Liability Attorneys
Students get injured at school all the time. Many injuries happen through normal activities, sports and running, and it is no one’s fault, just simply part of growing up.
Then there is another category of injuries at school where, because of the negligence of the school administration or a particular teacher, a child is seriously injured, and that injury could have been avoided if proper care had been utilized at the time.
These accidents could involve a wide array of negligent acts, including failure to maintain the premises, failure to provide proper equipment or faulty equipment, failure to supervise activities and even during sports if there was something exceptionally wrong with some aspect of the field of play or equipment.
Each case rests on its own facts and has to be evaluated with regard to its specific circumstances. Be aware that since the majority of school cases are against the New York City Public School System, there are very rigid notice of claim and statute of limitations requirements. Time is always of the essence in these matters.
