    Who is liable for an accident in the playground?


    Are you wondering who is liable for an accident in the playground? If your child has become hurt in the playground due to faulty equipment or a badly-maintained surface, the people in charge of the playground will be responsible. This could mean a school, the council running the facilities or the company that owns them.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve been helping parents and guardians get compensation for playground accidents since way back in 2000 when we were first founded. If your child has been hurt in the playground because of negligent playground owners or managers, we can help.

    Wondering who is liable for an accident in the playground?

    Your child’s accident can be very expensive. Have you been forced to take time off work nursing your child back to health? Maybe you’ve forked out for costly medical treatments? If your child was off school for some time because of a serious accident, you may have paid out for expensive private tuition. Whatever the case, we can help you get back all the money you’ve spent because of the accident. We always aim to reach a conclusion quickly so you and your child can put the pain and trauma of the accident behind you and move on with your lives.

    We are one of the biggest personal injury companies in the industry and deal with all sorts of accident claims. It’s best to act as soon as possible if your child has been hurt in the playground so we can stick to the three-year time limit and speak to all concerned whilst memories remain fresh.

    Please don’t throw away any evidence related to your accident as this could be exactly what we need to bring you the right outcome. This means storing away safely photographs, witness contact details and medical receipts. We are here to hold those responsible for the accident to account and bring some justice to the situation.

    By taking action, you could be helping other children to avoid accidents as those in charge of the facilities are more likely to make them safer after an accident. We can help whether your child was hurt by a badly-maintained surface, a faulty swing, slide or anything else in the playground.
