School and Playground Injuries in Long Island

Assistance from a Long Island Injury Lawyer

When our children are at school or on the playground, we want to make sure that they receive the greatest amount of protection available. Cases of injury at a school or on a playground can occur due to a variety of circumstances, but often result in very severe injuries and damages to the innocent victim. Any injury case that takes place at school or on a playground requires skilled legal representation from a skilled attorney to address the claim for compensation.

Many of these cases take place in public schools, and the claim filed can be complex due to the type of insurer that protects liability in the public school system. These large insurers can take action to attempt to reduce claim amounts and create difficulty for the family who has a valid injury case. The legal team at The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. is prepared to evaluate the situation and advise you how to proceed in seeking compensation in such cases.

Understanding Your Child's Injury

Children are active and full of adventure. They may take risks when playing, but this does not excuse the operator of the playground from liability if there was a hazardous situation that could lead to injury or death. As each case must be thoroughly evaluated to determine the best course of action, in many cases a claim or lawsuit can be filed against the operator of the playground or the school in which the accident took place.

The degree of injury has much to do with the outcome of the suit, and the legal team at the firm can evaluate the situation and ensure that all types of damages suffered by the injured child and their families are fully addressed in a comprehensive claim. We provide strong legal support for injured victims throughout the communities of:

  • Long Island
  • Nassau
  • Suffolk
  • Queens

It is not advised that you discuss the injury case with an insurance adjuster without first retaining legal representation.

Holding the Liable Party Responsible

Such companies have been known to take statements and interviews and use them to reduce claim amounts. This practice can cause a lower settlement and when injuries are involved, the medical care and treatment as well as rehabilitation is an urgent and vital matter. Contacting a Long Island personal injury attorney from The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. to assist in your case may result in a significantly higher compensation and the ability to pay for medical bills.
