Launched in 2000, the European Child Safety Alliance aims to improve the safety of children living in Europe. The organisation has more than 30 member countries working together to reduce injuries to children. Experts from a range of fields and backgrounds, such as public health, medicine, education and psychology, come together from across Europe to help prevent child injury. The European Child Safety Alliance is head-quartered at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in Birmingham.
The organisation’s mission is to improve children’s lives through rights, reason and solidarity, ensuring that they put children first and taking into account opinions from many different professions and countries. They aim to inform the public, to ensure safe choices are made for children, and they also advocate for consistent legislation and standards across Europe. Their ultimate aim is to ensure that all children across Europe are ‘fit for life’ and receiving suitable adult support. To this end, they work to support the development of European and national child injury action plans and influence leaders to address the scope of child injury.
If your child has been injured, they may be able to offer advice and assistance, although if you decide to claim compensation for their injuries, you will need to seek advice from a professional personal injury lawyer.
Has your child been in an accident?
No matter how careful you are, accidents can still happen, and if your child has been injured, it’s important to establish the facts. Was it an unavoidable accident or due to somebody else’s negligence? For example, if your child falls off a climbing frame at nursery, was the equipment in well-maintained condition and were they being properly supervised? A personal injury lawyer can help to establish exactly what happened and who (if anyone) is to blame for your child’s accident – it can often be hard to take an objective view when your child has been injured.
