If you have a child of school age who takes part in extracurricular sporting activities, you will have to accept that there will be a high likelihood of your son or daughter being injured in the cut and thrust of play. As long as your child was not injured with malice, there will be little you will be able to do about this from a personal injury perspective.
As these sorts of activities are typically supervised by adults, you will be able to expect your child to get the medical treatment he or she needs in the aftermath of being hurt.

Unfortunately though, this is not always the case. A lack of properly trained supervisory staff could lead to your child’s injury not being treated properly or being made worse through mismanagement.
If this were to happen to your child, there will be a chance that you might be able to retain the services of a top 100% no-win, no-fee* Fenland accident at work compensation solicitor with a view to taking action against the organisation that was running the activity.
