Michigan Playground Injury Lawyer
Childhood Playground Injuries
Strangulation is the cause of most playground deaths, and falls account for 80 percent of the 220,000 injuries on playgrounds in the United States per year. A survey of Michigan playgrounds found 88 percent of playgrounds lacked adequate surface protection – less than the recommended nine inches of loose fill or wood chips– and 65 percent of playgrounds had slides and climbers higher than the recommended maximum of six feet. To be safe, avoid play areas built on hard grass or asphalt, and look for hazards where clothing can get caught and strangle a child.
