Playground Injury Lawsuits

Swings, monkey bars and jungle gyms may be fun for children, but they can also be dangerous. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 200,000 children visit emergency rooms every year for injuries suffered on playgrounds.

At the New York personal injury firm of Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson, L.L.P., we help children and their parents who have been affected by serious injuries on unsafe playgrounds. We know that representing your injured child is a tremendous responsibility, and we put our full resources and experience into getting the best compensation for your family.

Who Is Responsible?

Most playground injuries happen on public property - for example, at a public school or city park. Pursuing compensation from public entities comes with unique procedural hurdles. Fortunately, our attorneys have extensive experience in playground injury claims and municipal liability.

Can I sue the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation? If your child was hurt on municipal property, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the Parks and Rec Department, the city or another local government entity.

If the accident happened on private property, the owner of the property and his or her insurance company are likely already busy looking for ways to undermine your claim and avoid paying appropriate compensation for your child's injuries.

Regardless of who is legally responsible, it is important to begin investigating the accident and the scene immediately. Our attorneys and staff will thoroughly review the equipment and conditions before anything is removed or repaired.

No Recovery = No Fee

Many new clients wonder whether they can afford legal representation. They are relieved to find out that we only collect attorney fees as a percentage of any verdict or settlement we secure. When you consider that the right lawyer can make the difference between securing the compensation you need and walking away empty-handed, can you afford not to have legal help?
