The Massachusetts Department of Heath requires recreational / summer camps to complete an Accident / Incident Report for injuries / ill campers. The form must be completed when a camper suffers a death or serious personal injury that requires the camper to be sent home or requires the camper to be seen in a hospital or doctor’s office for evaluation. Serious personal injuries include those requiring suturing or resuscitation. They also include injuries involving broken or fractured bones or admission into a hospital. The incident / accident report must be submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Health within 7 days of the incident causing the injury.

If you have a child in summer camp / recreation camp who suffers an injury as a result of negligence or inadequate supervision, contact a Massachusetts child injury lawyer / attorney for consultation, advice, and representation as to issues involving past medical bills, current medical treatment, future medical bills, and compensation for pain and suffering associated with the personal injuries.
