Kids being kids, it’s almost inevitable that they will get injured at some point or another in the rough and tumble of play, assuming of course they can tear themselves away from their smartphones and tablet computers for long enough to indulge in some form of physical activity. If this is through overenthusiastic horseplay or their own actions, there won’t be an awful lot you’ll be able to do about it as a parent, other than to make sure they’re OK and provide a shoulder to cry on if necessary.
However, if they are hurt as a result of an accident that was not their fault, there will be a possibility that you might just be able to take some form of personal injury action against the party that was responsible for them being injured with the aid of a top 100% no win no fee accident claims in Blantyre solicitor. People who argue that parents are too keen to take personal injury action when their kids are hurt completely miss the point; if your child has been harmed as a result of somebody else’s negligent behaviour, you have a duty to make sure they are compensated in some way, shape or form.
Children’s injuries and accident claims in Blantyre
Poorly planned or badly maintained playgrounds can often pose a risk of doing children an injury in an accident that was not their fault. As most of these are typically looked after by local authorities, you and any accident claims in Blantyre solicitor you were to hire would most probably have to seek compensation from your local council if your child was injured in a playground.
Perhaps your daughter fell onto a surface that was too hard to be under a climbing frame, suffering a broken bone in the process. Council’s should ensure that some form of soft tarmac is laid where there might be a possibility a child may fall.
Perchance your son was injured when a swing he was playing on broke. If he was going at quite a pelt and one of the chains securing the seat to the frame of the swings were to snap, he could be done quite a nasty mischief. As the local authority concerned should have made sure that the swing was safe to use, you could well have accident claims in Blantyre on your hands under circumstances similar to these.
