Do I have a negligent case both parents were home at the time and aware of the new swing
In these type of premises liability cases, we would look at the home owners, whoever was supervising the children, and the person(s) who set up the rope swing, amongst others in determining those who may be possibly liable for the injuries to your son. You should contact an experienced personal injury/premises liability attorney as soon as possible so an appropriate investigation can be conducted.
I am very sorry to hear about your situation.
Yes. Consult with a local personal injury lawyer to fully evaluate your case. Your lawyer should secure the rope, the swing, and any and all other available evidence. Consult with counsel immediately to make sure important evidence is preserved.
I am so very sorry to read of your family's situation.
You MUST obtain counsel immediately. A personal injury attorney will know how to gather the important medical records, communicate with the insurance carrier for the other family, and advance a righteous claim on your child's behalf.
Best of luck to all of you.
I have had several similar type cases. You need to hire a personal injury lawyer to investigate this case. If your son's friends parents have homeowners insurance, it should be covered under their policy. There are several theories of liability under this premises liability case. Failure of the parents to properly supervise is one of the theories. Sorry to hear about the accident. Please hire a personal injury lawyer.
