When it comes to a broken nose, toddler injuries are perhaps worst of all. They are not old enough to properly understand what has happened to them, and since this is a very painful injury, it can be difficult for them to cope with what has happened.
We are all aware that kids of all ages get into scrapes from time to time. Toddlers are at an age where exploring the world around them is a priority. However, we do all we can to keep them safe. If we take them to a playgroup or venue that is designed to be child-friendly, we would hope the people running those venues would do the same.
Broken nose toddler injuries can be prevented by good health and safety steps
Health and safety is a term we are all familiar with. If you take your child somewhere that is welcoming to children, you would expect that venue to be safe and free from any potential hazards. Thankfully, this is most often the case. However, there are times when injuries can still happen, and in some instances, they may be found to have occurred through negligence.
For example, if you left your child at a playgroup, were there enough staff there to prevent children from being hurt? Were they qualified to do the job they were employed to do, and were the premises safe to use?
Do you have questions regarding your toddler’s broken nose?
If you do, there is still time to consider making a compensation claim. The usual three-year rule – the time limit in which you must make the claim – applies from the date your child turns 18. This means that even if the injury occurred over three years ago, you should still be able to make a claim on your child’s behalf.
A toddler’s broken nose injury could potentially result in compensation being paid to you on behalf of your child if negligence can be proven to have occurred.
