OCALA PLAYGROUND INJURY LAWYER

WAS YOUR CHILD HURT WHILE PLAYING AT A PLAYGROUND?

Children are more prone to injury because their sense of judgment is not fully developed. That is why every precaution should be taken to keep them safe—at home, in school, in child care, and on playgrounds. There are safety guidelines and standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission that should be followed when building or maintaining a playground so it is safe for all children.

Kids will fall on playgrounds—it is part of being a kid.

However, when a playground is not properly constructed or maintained, accidents involving children can unnecessarily occur. If a playground injury to your child was due to a fall from unsafe equipment or a fall onto a hard surface rather than the required soft surface, or from too great a height, you may have reason to file a claim for medical expenses and pain and suffering to protect your child and their future.

KNOWLEDGEABLE, CARING LEGAL HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST

Steven Wingo, Attorney at Law has helped many families deal with medical expenses and the difficult times resulting from their child’s injury on unsafe or poorly maintained playground equipment and as a result of negligence or failure to adhere to simple safety specifications for playground design.

WORKING TO PROTECT INJURED PEOPLE’S RIGHTS SINCE 1994

Steven Wingo, Attorney at Law recently represented a family whose child had been injured on substandard playground equipment. After the accident, the child saw an orthopedist who was not accustomed to treating serious children’s injuries, and the bone did not heal properly. Finding appropriate medical care can be difficult when dealing with serious children’s injuries. They require pediatric specialists who understand the special issues of children.

Mr. Wingo and his staff want to help your child get better. They pay attention to all your needs, have an in depth understanding of our complex health care system, and know how to help you access the resources your need so you can get the best care possible for your loved ones. Doing so takes time and requires a lawyer who cares not just about your case, but about your recovery.

One of the most gratifying cases in Mr. Wingo’s career involved a situation in which he helped a family and their young child get specialized treatment with a pediatric orthopedic surgeon at a dedicated children’s hospital. A substantial recovery was made in the case, which was deserved by the young child, but the monetary award pales in comparison to the assistance provided in helping his family find the right health care providers so the child’s injuries could heal properly and lead to a more normal life.
