Accidents in public parks

It’s so easy starting your claim and it takes just one phone call to Accident Advice Helpline.
Fighting accident claims with the best lawyer West Down has
There are various ways that accidents can take place in a public park.
Falling or tripping on the paths and footpaths in a public park is not uncommon; these should always be maintained and safe to walk on. If you have unfortunately fallen and can prove that you fell because the surface that you were walking on was unstable or damaged, you may be able to claim compensation with the best lawyer West Down can offer for your specific accident or injury. Photographs are great to use as evidence as well as getting the contact details of witnesses.
Children’s play equipment should be fun, stable and fit for heavy duty use. It should also be regularly checked to ensure it’s safe to use and is not worn or broken in any way. If your child has been injured using play equipment in a public park, you can consult a lawyer in West Down about how much you may be entitled to claim for your child.
Other forms of accidents in parks
Water features, including lakes and ponds, can be a lovely addition to any public area. However, they are also potentially hazardous, particularly for children. The consequences of a child entering a water feature are severe and fatalities have been recorded. The water feature or pond should be guarded or there may have to be warning signs in the area so that parents and carers of children are made aware.
Members of the public are not the only ones who can be involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault. Employees who work in the park like gardeners, park wardens and event organisers are also prone to getting injured. These accidents often involve dangerous machinery such as chainsaws and vehicles. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyer in West Down will collect information from the injured party about the training that they received to work on the grounds. The maintenance and regular checking of the machinery is also important. The worker will need to detail the protective equipment that they were provided with and how effective it actually was in practice.
