We at Accident Advice Helpline can help you if your child has been injured on a slide in a public park. If the accident occurred due to the equipment being faulty or not being maintained properly, there’s a good chance you will be able to get compensation. Accidents on slides can occur for many reasons. For instance, they can be caused by faulty handrails or loose components. As long as the accident was the fault of the organisation in charge of the park, you may well be able to claim.
You could also claim if you were the one injured whilst in the park. You will normally have a three-year limit for claiming, but if your child was the one that was injured on a slide in a public park, you can make a claim at any time up to their 18th birthday. Thereafter, they can claim in their own right within three years. It’s important to gather as much evidence as you can to strengthen the chances of the claim being successful. We can work with you to collect the evidence together if we think you do have a case.
Gathering evidence if you are injured on a slide in a public park
Evidence can include photographs of the injuries, the slide itself, witness contact details and correspondence from the company or organisation in charge of the slide. Make sure you keep evidence of any costs that have arisen due to the accident, such as receipts for medical treatments, tickets for transport to the hospital and more so we can get the money back for you. If you have lost earnings because of the accident, we can also get this back.
What’s more is that we work on a no-win, no-fee* basis, so you don’t stand to lose out financially if the case is unsuccessful. To avoid wasting your time, we only go ahead with claims if we think we have a good chance of winning. We have been in the business for over 16 years and have worked on a huge range of cases since our inception. Accidents can be very upsetting for you and your child, but we can help you get compensation to offset at least some of your pain and suffering.
