You can’t keep an eye on your kids 24/7 and as any parent of young children will know, they can get pretty wild at playtime, running around and burning off energy. So it’s perhaps inevitable that the odd accident will happen, usually a trip and fall involving grazed knees and a slightly bruised ego. But what about those playground equipment accidents that leave children more seriously injured? Surely somebody is at fault for those?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve got 15 years’ experience handling personal injury claims on behalf of parents across the nation whose children have been injured in playground equipment accidents. Endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, for our excellent customer service, we’re proud to offer a 100% no win, no fee* service to all our customers, so anyone can afford to claim with us.
Assigning blame – whose fault is it really?
It might be that your child has been injured in an accident at their school or nursery playground; so who’s at fault? In the case of playground equipment accidents, where a faulty climbing frame breaks or a roundabout fails and children are thrown off and injured, then the school or nursery could be held liable.
That’s because it’s their job to ensure that the playground equipment is maintained to a safe standard, reducing the risk of accidents occurring. If they fail to do so, they’ve been negligent and could be ordered to pay out compensation if your child is injured.
You’ll need to prove that they are responsible for your child’s accident, but we’re here to help you with that – we’ll gather evidence in support of your claim which could include witness statements, a report on the condition of the playground equipment and medical reports relating to your child’s injuries.
Why should you claim?
If your child has been seriously injured, you could find yourself faced with medical and care bills that you simply can’t afford, or perhaps you’ve needed to take time off work to look after them whilst they are recovering.
Making a personal injury claim, however your child has been injured, could help you to cover medical costs and compensate you for your loss of earnings. But you’ll need a reputable personal injury lawyer and that’s where we come in.
Call Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500 and not only will you benefit from confidential, no-obligation advice, but you’ll also get to take advantage of our 100% no win, no fee* service. So you have nothing to lose by getting in touch to find out more about making a claim.
