Can the city be held responsible for my child’s playground accident?

If a child is injured due to rusty equipment or loose bolts at a city park, could the city be held responsible for my child’s playground accident?

If your child is injured due to rusty bolts or loose pieces of equipment at a city playground, then by all means, the city or municipality or the entity that controls that playground is most likely going to be responsible for it. They have a duty to maintain their equipment and to regularly inspect it for such conditions as we’re talking about here. As a result, this is the sort of thing that you’re not going to be able to figure out on your own. You should contact an attorney to make sure that we can get the proper information to help you prosecute your case.
