It’s a fact of life that kids will get injured from time to time. Many will sustain injures while playing sport at school, but only the most foolhardy would suggest that this would be a reason to stop kids from participating in competitive games. Thankfully, most PE lessons and extra-curricular sporting sessions are supervised by somebody who knows what to do if a child is injured. There should always be a member of staff or volunteer on hand whenever children are participating in a sport that could result in them doing themselves a mischief.
However, on some occasions this might not happen. On others, a person who does have the necessary training might make a mistake that could wind up making an injured child’s condition worse. If your child were to be injured in an accident that occurred as a consequence of the rough and tumble of play but then had his injury made worse as a result of the staff who were supervising not knowing what to do, then you may find it necessary to take legal action.
School sports accidents
Imagine that your son was competing in a basketball game for his school one evening. Unfortunately, after jumping up in an attempt to pop the ball into the basket, he falls awkwardly, breaking his arm. The teachers who are supervising panic. Without thinking, they move him quickly inside to call an ambulance, failing to offer the injured arm any support. This could very well make your son’s injury worse.
If you suspect that the staff who tended to your son might have made his condition worse, you will be well within your rights to explore the possibility of using a decent 100% no win, no fee* law firm to seek compensation on his behalf.
