The Unsafe Swing: A Case Study – New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Andy Siegel Explains
New York personal injury attorney Andy Siegel talks about a horrible case in which a young girl became a paraplegic because of an unsafe swing in her playground.
After the family looked into several different lawyers who all turned down the case, they came to us for help. It turns out this girl was standing up on a swing while her sister was seated. Once they gained height, the girl fell off and flipped backwards into a wall. However, upon investigation we found out that a swing set is supposed to have a “fall zone” double the length of the height of the set. For example, the swing set was 10 feet high and should have a fall zone 20 feet from the set. In this case, there wasn’t contributing to the massive injury this young girl suffered.
