Do you know what action you can take if your child is injured at a party? Children’s parties take place in all sorts of venues, including fast food restaurants, homes, halls and community centres. Generally, those in charge of the venue itself or organising the party have a duty of care to those attending it and are responsible for keeping them safe. What you should do if your child is injured at a party may depend on the exact circumstances of the situation, so call Accident Advice Helpline if your child has come to harm and you’re not sure who is liable to pay compensation.
See if you’re eligible to claim if your child is injured at a party
Venues hired out for parties need to have proper escape routes, a sufficient number of fire extinguishers and dry floors to give just a few examples. If your child has been hurt at a party and it was someone else’s fault, there’s a chance we can help you get compensation.
Your child may suffer from food poisoning after being served something that they shouldn’t have at a party. They may have an allergic reaction to face paints or could be injured whilst using facilities like bouncy castles. They may become hurt whilst playing games without adequate supervision or they could be burned when blowing out candles. Badly-maintained facilities like uneven surfaces and loose steps are common causes of accidents at parties.
