This was the 1st time I've used Zanes Law. It was a fantastic experience for having to go through a situation most would rather not. The attorney and staff were always available to answer my questions and explained things clearly and were obviously 100% in my corner. My attorney, Jim, was very genuine and made me immediately comfortable when I came in to speak with him about my case. Every case manager I dealt with was patient and helpful. I would definitely return to Zanes should the time ever come again that I need a personal injury firm.

Zanes Law was a terrific legal experience. I first went to a law firm that only wanted me to go to physical therapy and pad the bill, so they could utilize my insurance policy to its capacity. Once I went to Zanes, they were honest, professional and prompt with calls almost once a week. Sometimes I got a call just because we did not have contact for close to two weeks. Some calls were to just ask how I was doing. I also received more money than originally discussed. Great job Zanes Law!!!!! If need be I will use their services again. THANKS

Compensation Is Different in Child Injury Cases

Compensation is distributed differently when it involves a child injury. A jury verdict or settlement needs to be reviewed by a judge to ensure the child is being treated fairly. Only then can the funds or compensation be distributed.

The final distribution of the claim will first address the doctors and medical liens. Your lawyer will be paid their contingency fee to cover the cost of legal services provided. Then, any out-of-pocket costs you incurred or wages you lost while caring for your child will be distributed.

The balance of the settlement or award will be held in trust until they reach 18 years of age. It will accrue interest and the court must approve any access until that date. This is done to protect the legal interests of the child and ensure that they are compensated for their pain and suffering. 

Causes of Playground Injuries

Children’s playground injuries are usually just a part of learning and growing. Every child has fallen and skinned their knee or learned the hard way to use caution when jumping from a swing. Just because a child is hurt on a playground, doesn’t necessarily mean a legal action is warranted.

However, many things can contribute to hazardous conditions that lead to a playground injury that may have been preventable. Some of these conditions could be considered negligence and are causes of playground injuries:

  • Defective or dangerous playground equipment
  • Dangerous conditions of the school, child care facility, or park
  • Failure to supervise and intervene appropriately
  • Failure to warn of hazardous conditions, such as a broken step on a slide

Some of the leading causes of playground injuries have to do with the design or installation of unsafe products. The manufacturer of defective playground equipment could be held responsible for your child’s injuries in a defective product lawsuit. 

An accident attorney will look for the following playground equipment hazards:

  • Platforms lacking guardrails
  • Poor maintenance of equipment
  • Head entrapment hazards
  • Impalement or protrusion hazards
  • Tripping hazards
  • Dangerous equipment not recommended for public use on playgrounds
  • Lack of proper protective surfacing
  • Entanglement hazards
  • Not enough space between equipment
  • Crush hazards
  • Pinch hazards
  • Sharp edge hazards

A playground accident attorney in Phoenix can help to identify if dangerous equipment, negligent supervision, or other acts of negligence contributed to your child’s accident and hold the responsible parties accountable.

Common Playground Injuries

According to the CDC, more than 200,000 kids are treated for playground injuries in emergency departments in the U.S. each year. Most of the playground injuries treated by emergency rooms involve bone fractures, bruises, scrapes, and contusions. Though children are pretty tough, infections and fractures can become serious. 

Sadly, some injuries can be life-altering consequences such as traumatic brain injuries. If you believe that your child may have suffered a concussion or TBI, it’s important to seek medical evaluation from a qualified physician immediately. 

  • Concussions
  • Bruising
  • Fractures, broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal injury
  • Contusions 
  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Internal organ injury
  • Dislocation
  • Amputation
  • Open fractures
  • Puncture wounds
  • Sprains and strains

Even if your child’s injuries are not severe, they are painful and costly to treat. If you believe negligence was a factor, you can find out if you have legal grounds to pursue compensation in a premises liability claim with help from a playground accident attorney.
