    Ensuring a safe trip to the park with your toddler

    One of the earliest lessons children need to learn is road safety, so they learn the dangers of cars and avoid being part of a road traffic accident.

    Toddlers like to feel that they are gaining independence, which often means refusing to hold their parents’ hands and trying to walk alone – which, when near roads, greatly increases the chances of being injured in a road traffic accident. Although it can be difficult to keep a toddler restrained, the safest thing to do is ensure the child walks on the inside of you, away from the road, and holds your hand whenever possible. This will help ensure a safe trip to the park with your toddler. It’s also a good idea to drive to the park if it’s more than a few minutes away, but that does carry the risk of the child being an injured passenger in a car accident.

    After completing your safe trip to the park with your toddler there are other hazards

    Once you get to the park, there are other potential hazards – toddlers pick things up, and this could include animal faeces, dead birds, or unpleasant items discarded from other visitors to the park. The only way around this is to keep a careful eye on the child, with verbal communication about what is ok, and not ok, to touch.

    Can I claim for bicycle injury compensation?

    Aside from children and dogs, many parks often have joggers and cyclists, and this could be dangerous with children around. If your child does get hit by a bicycle, or you fall over an unmarked item, then a personal injury claim could be possible to seek compensation.

    The law in the UK is that if you were involved in an accident within the past three years that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline specialises in personal injury cases, and works on four key principles: integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability.
