Skate park accidents can and will happen occasionally. If you have an accident at a skate park because the park was not kept in a safe condition, the owner could be held liable for your injuries.
Who is liable for an accident at a skate park?
Who is liable for an accident at a skate park depends on who it is owned by. This may be an individual or company if the park is owned privately or the relevant local authority, such as your local council, for example, if the park is owned publicly.
Owners’ duty of care
Owners of skate parks – public or private – have a legal obligation to ensure users’ health and safety is not put at risk. This includes maintaining a park in a condition that is safe to use. If you sustained an injury at a skate park due to poor maintenance, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
