Childhood environments such as parks and amusement parks are meant to be safe and fun places for children. Unfortunately, each year children are seriously injured or killed in a variety of environments, including:
- Amusement parks
- Boat rides
- Public festivals and fairs
- Day care centers
- While in the care of babysitters at home
- Car accidents
- Field trips
- Afterschool activities
- Community centers
- Public playgrounds
Virtually any environment can be unsafe for a child if there is are not adequate security and safety measures taken and if adequate supervision is not provided. For example, pool injuries and drowning in Davie and other communities often occur in cases where a neighbor fails to secure a pool area. For this reason, homeowners in Florida are expected to put up a fence and install a self-locking gate around any pool or to otherwise secure the pool area in order to ensure that children are not injured. Schools are also expected to take extra precautions to keep children safe. The standard of care expected with children is simply higher.Higher Standards of Care Can Lead to a Personal Injury Claim
Those who take care of children in a caregiving capacity or an educational capacity as well as those who have businesses that cater to children have a high standard of responsibility to ensure that children remain safe. When property owners and caregivers fail to provide a safe environment, children are often injured. When this occurs, in many cases families may be able to file a legal claim in order to seek compensation so that they have the financial resources to pay for the best care possible for their child.
