My 8-year-old son injured his foot during the recess at school. I took him to an orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed the fracture of the growth plate and put his leg in a cast. When my son showed me the place where he had injured his foot I understood that the injury occurred due to a dangerous and unsafe environment around the school’s playground. The school’s old playground has been demolished, and the new one is being built. Behind the fenced building site there is a messy unfenced place full of building debris and piles of dirt. There are no signs that would warn students to keep off of that place. Judging from my son’s testimony, he tripped and injured his foot when running close to that messy spot. There are playground supervisors during the recess , but no one told my son not to approach the mess. I just wondering what entity -the school’s administration or a construction company- should be held liable for the injury for failing to provide a safe environment
