Climbing frames can be found in public play parks and some school playgrounds, and they’re great pieces of equipment that allow kids to have fun and let off some steam. The last thing you expect when letting your child use a climbing frame is that they will be injured as a result, but this could happen. Kids could fall from a faulty climbing frame or even suffer lacerations if there are sharp pieces of metal or plastic protruding from a damaged climbing frame.
If this has happened to your child, they may need to take time off school and you might also need time off work to look after them until they recover from their accident. Accident Advice Helpline offers free climbing frame injury compensation advice to anybody whose child has been injured in this type of accident.
What injuries has your child suffered?
If somebody else – for example the school or the owners of the park (often the local authority) is responsible for your child’s accident then they could be ordered to pay you personal injury compensation for any of the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Facial or eye injuries
- Head injuries
- Back, neck or shoulder injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Cuts and bruises
For minor injuries, your child may need to take a couple of days off school, but for more serious head injuries or broken bones, they may need weeks or even months off. This can set them back developmentally and leave them feeling isolated from their friends, affecting their confidence. Parents could be affected too as you may need to take time off work, resulting in loss of earnings. Getting climbing frame injury compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline is the first step to making a claim for the compensation your child deserves.
