What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Swing Set Injuries

Swing sets are fun recreational components of playgrounds that have been around for decades. These simple structures can provide children with hours of entertainment and exercise. However, despite the many positive attributes of swings, they can also pose a hazard to children when they are poorly designed, constructed, or maintained. If your child has been injured in a swing set accident caused by negligent supervision or a manufacturing flaw, you may have the right to claim damages from the responsible party.

Swing Dangers

If a child is not properly supervised while playing on a swing, or if the swing set is poorly designed or unstable, then he or she may run the risk of suffering serious injury. The following are some risk factors for children who enjoy playing on swing sets:

  • Entanglement in swing ropes or chains
  • Set collapse due to faulty design or construction
  • Falling off swing while in motion
  • Swing rope or chain break
  • Failure to properly anchor the set
  • Poor material selected as surface beneath the set

Play sets that have been designed to house more than just swings are particularly risky for children. Some of these layouts fail to take into account the possibility of an unexpected fall, and this lack of consideration poses a serious threat to all users. There have been numerous accounts of injuries necessitating immediate surgical care and even deaths resulting from such accidents.
