If a small child of yours has been injured in East Lindsey, and you want to file an East Lindsey no win no fee* accident claim, one of the best ways of doing so is by using the online compensation claim service that Accident Advice Helpline offers.
Small children have no perception of danger
Small children have no real perception of danger and need constantly watching. But it’s impossible to keep your eyes on them every second. Whatever environment you may be in, there’s always the risk of an accident; but when the environment is a strange one, and there is a particular hazard present, the risk factor significantly increases.
2-year-old toddler falls through fence at funfair
A 2-year-old toddler went with his parents to enjoy the fun of the fair, but ended up being injured when he fell through the gap in a perimeter fence surrounding one of the rides at a fairground in Porthcawl.
Two panels had been removed so they could be repainted. The toddler fell approximately 4 feet through a gap in a fence that had had been created. The 2-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital and received treatment for face and head injuries. He was retained in hospital for 24 hours after which he was released and has suffered no long term effects.
Ride operator ignored his duty of responsibility
At the subsequent hearing, a representative of the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) stated that the owner of the fairground ride had a duty of responsibility to ensure that the fence was maintained and kept in good order, and that it was fit for purpose at all times. The ride operator entered a plea of guilty with regard to a breach of Section 3 (One) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. He was fined the sum of £2,500 and instructed to pay costs of a further £7,900.
