The mother of a little girl who was injured on the school playground has filed a lawsuit against the school district.
The lawsuit alleges that her daughter had gone outside with her entire class during recess and was allowed to play on the school’s jungle gym. As she reached up to grab the monkey bars, she slipped on the ice that had built up on the platform. This caused her to fall down and break both of her wrists.
The lawsuit states that the school district was negligent in that the child was not under proper supervision because she was allowed to play on equipment that they knew or should have known was unsafe.
This is a troubling issue. With children’s playgrounds filling up with little kids everyday as they bust open the doors of schools around the country and play on playground equipment, we trust that the equipment is safe and put together properly.
