What is the law regarding public playground accidents? 

Local councils, other playground owners, and playground managers all have a duty of care to provide a risk-free, secure environment for children to enjoy and play in. They must meet a number of legal requirements, including regular maintenance checks and the fixing of any problems or risks straight away. 
 
Therefore, any injuries that occur as a result of their failure to do so could lead to a claim for financial compensation. 
 
Examples of breaches of this duty of care by playground owners include: 
 
Failing to install playground equipment properly, such as loosely fitted monkey bars 
Poor maintenance of existing equipment 
The playground layout not conforming to legal standards 
Failure to regularly inspect the play area equipment 
 
If you, or your child, have been injured in a playground or play area that had not been properly maintained then you are eligible to make a claim for financial compensation. Get in touch with our specialist team of personal injury solicitors, here, for a no-obligation discussion of your claim.
