Experts Warn of Alarming Rate of Concussions Caused by Playground Accidents in New York

Playground Accidents Can have Long Term Consequences

New York City's playgrounds are supposed to be places where children can run and play without worry. However, research from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons shows that playgrounds are one of the most dangerous places for our children. Each year over 156,000 children under the age of 14 visit emergency rooms across the United States suffering injuries they received on public and private playgrounds. Many of these injuries are caused by defective or unsafe playground equipment, poor repair of the surrounding area, or failure of adult supervisors (such as school teachers and playground monitors) to properly safeguard our children.

These shocking statistics highlight the danger that even the youngest travelers face on New York City streets both during the school year and in the off-season as well.
