    Pontarddulais claims


    Levels of obesity in the UK are rising, perhaps most worryingly among children. A big part of the problem is the food parents are feeding their kids. Everybody knows that stuffing their little ones full of fatty burgers and processed food is going to have a negative effect on their health and wellbeing, but it seems that some foods and drinks once considered good for kids’ heath are in fact big causes of scale-tipping.

    In June 2014, a group of nutritionists and scientists advised parents not to give their children fruit juices, not even the freshly-squeezed variety, due to the high levels of sugar contained therein. A high-sugar diet is not only a cause of obesity, but also life-shortening conditions such as diabetes.

    Diet is only half the problem, though. Children (and adults, for that matter) need exercise if they’re going to avoid piling on the pounds. For those who don’t take part in extra-curricular sporting activities in their spare time, physical education at school is vital, but many children are lucky if they get as much as two hours of PE a week.

    If you’re a parent, you’ll probably be keen that your child does as much sporting activity in school hours as possible, within reason, assuming it’s supervised safely. If your school’s PE department is underfunded, though, your child could end up being injured in an accident that was not his or her fault. Under these circumstances, you might be able to take some form of Pontarddulais claims action.

    School sports accidents and Pontarddulais claims

    Perhaps your child suffered an injury while taking part in sports. You might be able to take some form of Pontarddulais claims action if they were hurt by a faulty piece of equipment. Maybe your son or daughter suffered an injury after slipping or tripping on an imperfection on a gym or playing field surface. Under these circumstances, you might well be able to sue the local authority that is responsible for your child’s school.
