Swings can be found in most public play parks and even some school and nursery playgrounds – or you may be lucky enough to have a swing at home in your garden. It can be devastating if your child is injured in an accident on a faulty swing, and you’ll probably find yourself wondering who is to blame for their accident.
If the accident has happened at home, it could be that the swing manufacturer is at fault, whilst if they have been injured in an accident at a play park, the local council (or whoever is responsible for managing the park) could be held liable and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation. Whoever is to blame, getting faulty swings injury compensation advice couldn’t be easier – just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline.
