Filing A Summer Camp Injury Lawsuit
If your child was injured due to a summer camp accident, you may have a legal right to sue the camp to get compensation for your child. You can still file a case even if you signed a Waiver before camp as these are often invalid under Michigan law. Most camps have insurance policies to pay claims made by campers injured due to the negligence of the camp or staff.
Many camp lawsuits are filed because the staff is not properly trained or was not supervising the child at the time of the accident. Other lawsuits are filed due to unsafe conditions or equipment on the camp. Lawsuits can also be filed if the summer camp fails to get appropriate medical care for a sick or injured camper in a timely manner.
Summer camp lawsuits seek settlements for pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and disability caused by the accident. If a camper died due to the negligence or carelessness of the camp or staff, the family can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the owner of the camp.
