DAWN M. PINNISI OBTAINS A $300,000.00 SETTLEMENT AGAINST THE CITY OF NEW YORK FOR INJURIES SUSTAINED BY A 12 YEAR OLD BOY AFTER FALLING OFF OF DEFECTIVE PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT

On May 2, 2013 at the Dr. Ronald E. McNair playground located at 122nd Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City, the infant plaintiff fell from playground equipment known as a spinning disc causing the infant to sustain a fractured arm. Ms. Pinnisi hired an engineer who opined that the spinning disc apparatus was unsafe and defective, namely due to the fact that the disc had nothing for children to hold on to while the disc was spinning, resulting in children being thrown from the disc. The expert’s opinion served as a basis for a lawsuit against the City of New York. As a result of this lawsuit, along with others brought throughout the five boroughs, the City of New York has removed these spinning discs or has made the discs stationery.
