What Can Happen
Children are more susceptible to injuries than adults are. They simply do not have the life experiences that let them know when they are facing a dangerous situation. Because of this, the adults that care for our children must take appropriate precautions. If they fail to do so, they can be held liable for injuries that happen to children under their care. Adults, other than parents, who are typically involved in ensuring child safety are:
- School administrators
- Daycare staff
- School bus drivers
- Other parents
- Sports coaches
- Recreation directors
There are times when companies and agencies can be held liable for injuries to children. If a faulty product is sold and a child is injured when they use or consume it, the company can be held liable for damages. This can include toys that are poorly designed or have hazards that were not labeled. This can also include medications that did not have the proper dosage or foods that did not list all allergens.
If playground equipment is not inspected and maintained by a school or government agency that controls it, and a child is injured due to broken equipment, the negligent party could be held accountable.
It is important to note that an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related concussions happen in the United States each year and most of them happen to children. Coaches and team staff must take more caution when they suspect a concussion because the effects of successive hits to the head can be devastating. Proper protocol must be followed concerning the medical care an athlete receives and when they are allowed to return to play.
Those who work with children or sell products to children must be vigilant at all times.
