Your Legal Rights After A Playground Accident
One would not normally assume that playgrounds would be unsafe areas for children and that the product safeguards would be of utmost concern for the organizations that manage them, but according to the Center for Disease Control:
Each year in the United States, emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related injuries.
Unfortunately, all too many children’s products are manufactured annually without the proper testing. When children are injured due to these faulty products, emotions can be overwhelming. The Missouri law firm of Norton & Norton, P.C. is here to help you and those you love.
