    Has your child been hurt at a skate park?

    As the popularity of skateboarding has increased, many local councils have commissioned skate parks to be built in their local area. Although they are popular with skateboarders, they are also used regularly by BMX bike riders and roller bladers.

    Such is their popularity, that they aren’t just used by local residents. Many keen skateboarders will travel significant instances to access a skate park, particularly if the park is newly built or particularly well equipped.

    Unfortunately, skate parks aren’t always maintained as well as they could be and this can result in unnecessary accidents and injuries occurring. If the skate park is damaged in some way and it’s not repaired, or even if rubbish isn’t collected from the site, someone could be hurt as a result.

    Whilst the council may not be responsible for the actual damage to the park, if they have failed to ensure the safety of its users, they could be held responsible for any injuries which occur, if the park is on council land or property. As many young children use skate parks, it can be particularly unfortunate if an accident which could have been avoided occurs because the area wasn’t maintained properly.

    Can I make a claim with injury solicitors in Wapping?

    If you’ve been injured whilst in a skate park on council or private property and it wasn’t your fault, it could be relatively straightforward for you to make a compensation claim with injury solicitors in Wapping, providing you’re over the age of eighteen.

    However, as many young people use skate parks and BMX tracks, it’s possible that the person injured will be under eighteen. Although injury solicitors in Wapping can help a person under the age of eighteen to obtain compensation, they may need assistance from an adult in order to be able to make a claim.

    If your child has been injured and you want to obtain compensation on their behalf, injury solicitors in Wapping should be able to assist you, providing you can show that the incident was caused by someone or something else.
