PLAYGROUND INJURIES: A VERY COMMON PROBLEM

April 2009

Each year, more than 200,000 children, aged 14 or younger, are treated in American emergency departments for playground-related injuries.  The Mulligan Law Firm is actively seeking and investigating serious injuries to children sustained in playgrounds. 

Many of these injuries involve serious head, neck, and brain injuries that can be life threatening.  There is no such thing as a “mild concussion”.  Even a relatively minor concussion can have drastic effects on the brain, and should be carefully evaluated by a physician.  Multiple concussions sustained over a period of time have been linked to many other health issues and brain damage. 

If you or a loved one have been injured in a playground accident, please contact The Mulligan Law Firm today, and share your story here. 

Playground accidents are also taking place on playgrounds owned by fast food chains, amusement parks, and other such places that attempt to draw business by making a place for children to play at the location of their business.  The Mulligan Law Firm is particularly interested in talking to those injured at fast food chain playgrounds.  The Texas, California, and Florida attorneys of The Mulligan Law Firm are now evaluating nationwide potential playground injuries.
