Child Safety Alert

If your child is hurt during recess, don’t automatically think “these things happen.”

Playing outside—especially around playground equipment—can be dangerous. Did you know the majority of school and daycare injuries occur due to insufficient supervision? 

While there are no city or state mandates regarding the ratio of adults to children during recess or play time, each school has its own guidelines. If your child is injured during recess, contact a lawyer right away. The attorney can review school policy and determine whether the staff is following protocol for proper supervision. If there is a violation of the guidelines, it is important to have the situation remedied for future safety on the premises.

Cases of negligence can be filed against both public and private schools, however if your child attends public school, you must file a notice of a claim within 90 days.
