My son loves a new playground that has been opened recently somewhere close to our home. It is an indoor playground, which is very handy on rainy days when we can’t go to the park. I find it great that we have an alternative for bad weather days, that we’re not confined to our living room and that we can still meet up and socialize with other children and mothers.
We were there a few weeks ago, having a good time. Robert was playing hide and seek with some of the other kids and I was talking to one of the mums. We were keeping an eye on them, but we knew that the place was very safe and the worst thing that could’ve happened was them tripping on their own feet and falling down.
But unexpected things always come up, don’t they? It’s how life keeps us from being bored. One of the fences that was keeping the kids safe on some stairs was not properly secured. The anti-baby mechanism was broken so one of the kids opened it and left it open. Robert thought that downstairs is a great place to hide (since they were not able to go there in the first place) so he ran enthusiastically down the steps. He tripped, fell down and hit his head. There was blood coming out and his cries were filling up the whole playground.
I took him to the hospital and they kept him for observation for two nights. His concussion could have had bad repercussions, but luckily it didn’t. Even so, have to go back to the hospital every month for the next half a year for CT scans, just to make sure everything is ok.
I want to file a compensation claim South Petherton against the playground. I loved that place, but I can’t believe they didn’t take care of fixing such a basic thing.
Who is entitled to file a compensation claim in South Petherton
The fact that your son was hurt because of the negligence of the maintenance of the playground entitles you to file a compensation claim in South Petherton and request for a financial compensation. This can cover most of your medical expenses and you can also claim for a compensation for the unnecessary pain that Robert was put through.
It’s true that children always get hurt, but we as adults have the obligation to insure an environment as safe as possible. The playground, a business dedicated to children, failed to do so.
