Playgrounds and school grounds can be dangerous locations for children to play in. Gliders, slides and other equipment can cause injuries due to unsafe design or faulty maintenance. On-ground safety padding can wear out, lose its fill or be entirely absent. Even sunlight and heat can bring the risk of burn injuries.
Yet despite apparent dangers and severe injuries, playground and school ground injury cases can be hard to win. If kids simply wander into a play area and become injured, a subsequent legal case can be weakened because they were there voluntarily. Schools face more liability when injuries occur during scheduled and compulsory gym and physical education classes.
