Common Playground Injuries

Playground Injury

Playground injuries can happen, even under the watchful eye of a parent. When this happens, a Las Vegas Personal Accident Attorney might be needed. Make note of the common playground injuries where this might be the case:

  • Bone Fractures

    A child’s fall can lead to fractures of their arms or legs, particularly if they fall from a high distance, such as the top of the slide. Since children are young, their bones are not fully developed. Young children are at the highest risk of fractures.

  • Internal Damage

    If your child suffers from internal damage due to a playground accident, the consequences can be devastating. If your child has suffered a serious impact and has pain in their stomach or head, make sure to see a doctor right away. If you see bruising, this could also be an indication of an internal injury.

  • Concussions

    There are a large number of ways a child can get hit in the head when playing at the playground. From running into another child or piece of equipment to taking a fall, concussions are common.

  • Amputations

    An amputation from a playground injury is rare, but it does happen and is absolutely devastating. With all of the gaps between playground equipment and various moving parts, getting stuck in one of the gaps could result in a severe gash or possibly the loss of a limb.

After a playground accident, it’s important your child visits a doctor right away if any of the following scenarios is true:

  1. Your child has lost consciousness
  2. Your child has a continuous headache
  3. Your child is disoriented
  4. Your child has amnesia
  5. Your child is vomiting
