Playground And School Injuries

Schools are responsible for exercising reasonable care and supervision to protect children against all foreseeable dangers.

School place accidents and injuries are becoming more frequent. A negligence case can be brought against the school board for failing to supervise the children attending the school, for failing to keep the grounds in a reasonable state of repair, and for failing to inspect the school grounds. Further, claims can be brought against the school board for failing to take disciplinary action against, and failing to supervise, a known bully.

Schools have a duty:

  • to maintain school property and equipment in safe and proper condition;
  • to maintain its playgrounds so that it is safe and free of harmful defects;
  • to ensure that adequate safety equipment is provided to children if they are involved in a potentially dangerous activity; such as,
    woodworking, scientific experimentation, or physical education; and
  • to ensure proper supervision and care for all activities, excursions and classes.

These are the essential duties of our schools. If they fail to take measures to keep children safe, they can be found negligent for the injuries or harm that come to children under their care.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
