Splash pads are a great resource that many parents take advantage of in the hot Oklahoma summers. They are a nice place to take young children as the dangers that a pool possesses are not usually a factor and parents can bring several children without the worry of losing sight of a child in crowded waters. But what happens when the splash pad turns out to have dangers of its own? Splash pads are inherently wet, that is their purpose. They should be designed so that the participants are able to walk and play safely in them without fear of slipping and falling.
If you have suffered an injury while on a splash pad due to a slip and fall there are several things you should do right away.
Get Medical attention: The first thing you need to do if you suffer a slip and fall accident is seek medical treatment. Even if you think it’s just a sore hip, there could be more serious problems underlying your initial pain. Not only do you need to take care of yourself and your body, but the medical record could be helpful in securing your claim. If you were carrying a child or a child was involved in the accident, you need to have them checked out as well.
We also employ an in-house nurse to help us evaluate your injuries and investigate your case.
Contact an Attorney: Some people may think that they can deal with the property owners or insurance company privately but they are in business to stay in business and paying out damages impacts their bottom line. You need someone to fight for you and who will get you what you deserve.
