San Diego Playground Accident Lawyers
What to do After a Park or Playground Injury
It started off as a nice weekend getaway. You and your family headed to a nearby park or playground to relax and recharge for the week ahead. Then in an instant‚ you were scrambling to preserve the life of your son or daughter. You rushed your loved one to the emergency room and now‚ you more than likely‚ have many worries flying through your head‚ such as:
- Will my child ever recover from their injuries?
- Who is responsible for their accident?
- What legal options do I have?
- Should I contact an attorney?
Everyone at the Jurewitz Law Group empathizes with your situation and wants you to know that help is available. Unfortunately‚ many of these incidents could have been entirely prevented had the proper amount of care been placed into the park’s maintenance and construction. We believe it is the right of every parent to hold these negligent‚ and often willfully neglectful‚ owners and municipalities accountable for their actions – or lack thereof. If your child has been recently hospitalized due to a playground accident that was clearly the result of poor management or development‚ call our office today and schedule a free consultation with a top San Diego child injury attorney at (619) 233-5020 or (888) 233-5020.
Of course it is only natural to question this entire idea – “What good will an attorney do now? My son or daughter is going to deal with this injury for the rest of their life.”
Unfortunately‚ no amount of representation or legal action will undo what has been done to your child. We cannot turn back the clock. However‚ we can take steps to insure that both you and your family are able to overcome the financial hurdles that such accidents almost always present. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your son or daughter’s accidents and the degree of negligence involved‚ you could be entitled to significant compensation from the city or private owner. The following are just some of the more common awarded damages that we have encountered over the years:
- Emergency medical transportation and attention
- Doctor follow-ups and specialist treatment
- Long-term hospital care and arrangements
- Pain and suffering‚ as well mental trauma
- Therapeutic treatment‚ both physical and emotional
Don’t delay. If your loved one is currently dealing with broken bones‚ head injuries‚ or other serious conditions‚ let the experienced and knowledgeable team at the Jurewitz Law Group help you find a way to ease their pain. Call (619) 233-5020 or (888) 233-5020 or submit your information online and a member of our staff will contact you momentarily.
