Poorly Installed School Playground Equipment Crushes Child’s Leg
How It Happened
A young child was injured on an elementary school playground when his leg was crushed by an improperly installed
piece of equipment.
Injuries sustained from the accident
The boy’s ankle was broken, and he was unable to put any weight on his foot. He initially had to wear a short leg
walking cast and use crutches and a scooter to get around his school and house. The victim had to miss out on
his physical education classes, which was incredibly upsetting for him as sports were a major part of his life.
The case settled prior to trial for $35,000.00
