    Compensation for hotel playground injuries

    Staying in family friendly accommodation on holiday in the UK or abroad usually means there will be plenty of facilities for the kids. Keeping children of all ages entertained on holiday is no mean feat, but if there’s a kids club, games room and hotel playground, you’re 90% of the way there.

    Whether you supervise the kids yourself whilst they’re in the playground or leave them to the watchful eye of the kids club or resort staff, hotel playground injuries could occur which could ruin your holiday.

    Children are adventurous by nature, which means they’re more likely to take risks and less likely to pay attention to health and safety considerations. Hotel playground injuries could be caused by faulty equipment, lack of supervision or a range of other factors, and if you’re convinced that the resort staff or your tour operator is to blame, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Accidents in playgrounds

    Children could be injured in any number of ways whilst playing in a hotel playground – here are a few examples:

    • A slip, trip or fall on uneven surfaces or broken tarmac
    • Fall from height, for example off a broken or damaged climbing frame
    • Cuts and lacerations from faulty equipment with sharp edges
    • Injured when a swing breaks
    • Head injuries after being flung from a faulty roundabout

    Obviously, some of these injuries are more serious than others. If your child has sustained life-changing or life-threatening injuries, such as a head or spinal injury, this could impact the rest of their life and they may need ongoing care or treatment.
