Summer is typically a great time for a child. School is out and the focus is on fun, sports, and activities. Unfortunately for some children, summer marks a point in time in which a child suffers a serious personal injury in the form of heat exposure, fractures, and other injuries. If a child is injured a a summer camp, there are many issues and challenges to pursue a case or claim against the summer camp. It should be noted that a summer camp is not liable or responsible for every since incident or injury.
With any form of physcial activity even arts and crafts, there is a risk of injury. The question is whether the summer camp acted reasonable and timely. It is important that the facility, equipment and supplies are regularly inspected; otherwise, more injuries take place at summer camps and, yes, a case can be pursued if it can be shown that the injuries resulted from negligence, carelessnesss, improper supervision, or dangerous conditions.
