    Compensation claim in Hertingfordbury

    Of all parental pressures, few are often as strong as the desire to see our children prevail in sporting activities. There are many reasons why parents desire to see their children get stuck in with sporting stars, from the dream of one day seeing our little ones grow into the next Andy Murray or Gareth Bale to a more primal hope that through endeavour they can remain fit, healthy and happy all through their adolescence.

    For the parents in a compensation claim in Hertingfordbury, the stakes were even higher. These parents had been advised by medical specialists to get their children involved in team sports in an effort to recover from anxiety issues following a, fortunately injury-less, car accident a few months earlier.

    Poor supervision on pitch led to a compensation injury claim in Hertingfordbury

    Unfortunately all these good intentions could not prevent a later compensation claim in Hertingfordbury taking place. In this case the child, 9, who was actually adjusting very admirably to a left winger’s position in an under-10s football club, was let down by poor supervision at the club.

    When he took a nasty tumble from a tackle he was left lying on the pitch with a badly twisted ankle and torn ligaments for almost ten minutes while staff were distracted by the progress of play further down the pitch. This in itself is unfortunate but not unheard of, and parents must consent to the possibility of ordinary sporting accidents, unfortunate as they may be, when they leave their children in the care of clubs like the one where the compensation claim in Hertingfordbury took place.

    So what was special about the injury claim in Hertingfordbury?

    This case was somewhat different, not because of the nature of the initial injury claim in Hertingfordbury, but because the subsequent conduct of staff fell significantly below the care that can reasonably be expected, hence the aspect of negligence. The staff failed to adequately diagnose the scale of the injury and tried to force the child to continue playing. This exacerbated both the injury and the aspect for pain and suffering caused, which is a separate head of damages in English personal injury law.
