School Playground Negligence

While it might be frightening to think about our children’s teachers and supervisors as negligent, sometimes attention slips for a moment and the safety of children is put at risk. Many playground injuries among school children are preventable, but sometimes a teacher or administrator didn’t give the kids enough attention or was otherwise negligent in watching them. You might be a parent in Massachusetts who has an injured child due to negligence at school, but the attorneys of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP know that you might qualify for financial compensation to help cover the costs of treating your child.

How a Supervisor Might be Negligent

Teachers or supervisors might be found to have been negligent in a number of ways when working on or near a school’s playground. As only a few examples, negligence might consist of any of the following:

  • Allowing kids to play with age-inappropriate equipment
  • Allowing kids to play too roughly
  • Not properly watching the kids’ activities

These actions might all constitute negligence. Such an action might give you grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit in Massachusetts, but an experienced attorney would first have to examine the particulars of your situation.
