What you should do if your child is injured and how to make an injury claim in Tonyrefail
It is every parent’s worst nightmare that somehow their child will be badly injured one day. Most parents will watch over their children all of the time to ensure that nothing bad can possibly happen, and so that they can jump in if they do feel that their child is in danger. However, some accidents cannot be prevented by a loving parent. If you need help to file any injury claim in Tonyrefail, call us at Accident Advice Helpline now.
It is not possible to be watchful over your child 100% of the time, as you will have tasks that you need to do throughout the day and children have a habit of getting into trouble on their own. Here are some of the things that you can do if you think that your child is injured.
- Check them over. The most important thing you can do to ensure your child’s safety is to check them over as soon as you suspect that they are injured, so that you can assess the damage and work out whether or not your child needs further attention.
- Perform first aid. Even if you are going to take the child to the doctor or hospital quickly, performing first aid can help to stop any infection beginning and also help stem the flow of any bleeding so that you can get to safety without the child losing too much blood.
- Find out what happened. Try to retrace their steps and find out exactly how and why your child has been injured. This can tell you all sorts of things such as who is to blame, if there are any other factors which doctors will need to know (such as a rusty piece of playground equipment) and so on.
- Stay calm. Your child is likely to be panicking and crying if they are injured and are in pain, but the worst thing you can possibly do is to follow suit. Make sure that you are efficient and act quickly, but also ensure that your child never sees you panic even if they do appear to be quite badly hurt.
