    Injuries you could sustain in a park


    Walking your dog at the park, taking a stroll with your other half, kicking a ball around with the kids. These are all things most of us do on a regular basis at our local park. Parks are especially important in urban areas where people may not have gardens to relax in – and on a sunny day, there’s nothing better than packing a picnic or enjoying your lunch at the park when you’re having a busy day at work. Accidents in parks could leave you suffering from serious injuries – and you might find yourself asking who is to blame for your accident. If somebody else is at fault, Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers could help you get the compensation you deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    How could you be injured at the park?

    Children could be injured whilst playing on faulty playground equipment – for example, a swing with sharp edges could cause lacerations, whilst a damaged climbing frame could lead to a fall from height. You could be bitten by a dog that is off the lead and running around. You could be struck down by food poisoning after eating food purchased at a stand or stall in the park. But slips and trips are probably the most common injuries to occur.

    Damaged footpaths or cycle trails could lead to a slip, trip or cycling accident which could leave you suffering from some nasty injuries. Back injuries, head injuries, broken bones, sprained ankles and wrists – these are all injuries you could sustain in a park. If the park is owned by your local council, they could be held liable if you or a member of your family are injured. You could make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident, and get confidential, no-obligation advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    Will you have to go to court?

    It’s highly unlikely you’ll have to go to court if you make a personal injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline can process most claims over the phone, so that’s one less thing to worry about. We have been helping people claim compensation for park accidents since 2000, and our team of expert advisors are on hand to answer your questions. So why not give us a call on 0800 689 0500 and find out more about the claims process?
