Is Your Child’s Playground Safe?

Is Your Child’s Playground Safe?

Naturally, every parent’s first concern is the safety of his or her children. This is especially true on a playground, where small children spend a good deal of their time running, climbing, and doing other physical activities that can lead to injury. Despite the advances that have been made in designing safe equipment, over 200,000 children continue to visit emergency rooms every year due to playground-related injuries.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, our Charleston personal injury lawyers want every child to be as safe as possible. If your children regularly visit a local park or playground, use these guidelines to determine if its equipment is safe enough.


A good playground should have:

  • Ground covering that will protect a child who falls, such as wood chips, loosely packed sand, or pieces of rubber;
  • Separate play areas for older and younger children;
  • Protective barriers around all elevated equipment such as platforms, stairs, and ramps;
  • Well maintained equipment: no rusted metal or splintered wood;
  • Swings made from rubber or plastic, with bucket seats for toddlers that are far away from swings for older kids;

Depending on the circumstances, the people who manufactured the playground equipment or the agency in charge of maintaining the playground may be responsible. A successful lawsuit can help you win compensation for medical bills and suffering.
