Trying to find out if I have a case. Fell at a public playground and shattered my heel.

What caused you to fall?

Did this occur in NY? If yes, you need to serve a Notice of Claim on the municipality within 90 days to preserve your right to sue assuming by "public playground" you meant it is owned by the City, Town, etc.
Several questions that need answering before anyone can know whether you have a case. Primarily, what caused you to fall? Because there are strict time restraints on starting claims and cases with municipalities, don't wait long before getting in touch with a lawyer. You might consider snapping a few photos of the accident scene now. VTY, Michael E. Zuller
