As a parent there is nothing more important to you than protecting your child from harm. Well, that and perhaps the occasional lie in.
However, as your child gets older and develops the ability to move under their own steam, you start to accept that protecting them from every single little knock and bump is going to be impossible. You might be able to change a nappy in the dark with one arm tied behind your back, but you cannot protect them from everything.
With the vast majority of childhood accidents they are exactly what they appear – accidents. A hyperactive child runs headlong into a climbing frame. It happens . We’ve all been there. A quick cuddle, a magic kiss from Mummy and the boo-boo goes away.
Unfortunately, some accidents are a little more serious, and some accidents aren’t accidents at all. Not in the real sense of a “could have happened to anyone, couldn’t have been predicted” kind of way we usually mean when talking about the clumsiness of our offspring.
If your child has been injured in an accident that you think could have been prevented, and which was caused by someone else then you might want to think about making a personal injury claim on their behalf. In which case you would be well served seeking the advice of an injury lawyer in Caerphilly.
