Canadians are lucky to have access to great playgrounds and parks in our cities, where our children can play outdoors and socialize with friends. Most playgrounds are safe and well-maintained, and children often have scraped knees, bumps and bruises after a fun day at the playground.
Unfortunately, there is a small risk of a child suffering a serious injury on the playground. This risk exists at the municipal park and in a neighbour’s backyard, and can be the result of any number of factors, such as:
Commonly, serious playground injuries are the result of falls, which often result in broken bones, and in some cases more serious injuries. Even with insurance coverage, medical care following a playground accident can be very expensive and quickly add up. If you need to take time off of work to care for your child, this adds to the financial burden.
If your child has been injured on the playground, you may wonder whether you have any options for legal action on their behalf.
Playground injuries usually occur on someone else’s property, which means that the Occupiers’ Liability Act applies. According to the Act, the owners and occupiers of property are responsible for ensuring that people coming on to that property are reasonably safe. If the owner or operator of a playground was negligent in any way, you may be able to bring a claim against them for compensation.
