How do I protect my child’s legal rights after suffering an injury on a playground?
After your child is injured in a playground, there’s certain things you have to do immediately. First of all, it should be reported, because it’s an easy thing to track if the accident is reported, but from a legal sense, one of the main things you have to do, is you have to file what’s called a notice of claim with the municipality that runs that playground or the entity that runs that playground. That has to be done within 90 days of the accident. If you don’t do it within 90 days of the accidents, there’s a very good chance that the courts are not gonna let you bring a lawsuit later on to compensate your child for their injuries.
