Defective Playground Equipment

So you’ve decided that you’ve been working out, it’s all good you are ready to show your daughter that you can swing on the newly placed Monkey Bars installed at the new playground on your, just as well as she does.  As you swing from bar to bar, you grab in the place where the next bar should be and as a personal injury lawyer Dekalb County GA relies on can tell stories of other clients experiencing this- it is literally not there.  Because it’s not there, in reaching for it, you fall to the ground chipping your tooth and causing blood to gush from your mouth.  Terrified by the sight of you and what appears to be a river of blood gushing from your mouth (at least that’s what it looks like to a 2 year old).  First things first, you should seek some sort of medical assistance. Whether it is visiting your primary care provider or heading to the emergency room, you have to survey the damages so you can figure out what just happened.

While you may be partially at faulty for deciding to show up a 2 year old, the dental damage done should not be your full responsibility or burden.  It is likely that at least one of the new items on the playground is defective. You will likely take temporary join in the fact that it was you injured and not a child, however, what’s the next step.  Consulting an attorney may be something to consider following an incident in a public place that was due to no negligence of yours. An attorney can assist you by ensuring you have seen a medical care professional, reviewing the facts of the case, and shedding some light on your options.

If you have recently felt the effects of personal injury due to defective equipment on the playground, you may be entitled to financial compensation for any wages loss or medical bills. While showing off is a bit childish and arrogant, it is more times than not, where kids are concerned, it is merely desiring to a see a smile on their faces.  Because you aren’t an attorney, you should reach out to someone who can assist you in determining if you have a claim to seek compensation for any inconvenience you were caused. While it is difficult to digest the injury itself, a skilled, trained attorney will do a good job assisting you with gaining clarity and figuring out the next step.
