    Pontrhydyfen claims


    If you have children of primary school age, the last weeks of June and early part of July will mean that you’ll most probably feel duty-bound to either help out at, or at least attend, your child’s annual school summer fete. This is often an opportunity for schools to raise much needed funds for items that are not a part of the annual budget they receive from the Department for Education, assuming your child is not privately educated.

    These might involve a number of attractions, including stalls selling second-hand goods, prize raffles, performances from pupils, and food and alcohol for parents. They often also boast more risky activities, such as horse riding, bouncy castles, and climbing walls. These can be a lot of fun for the kids, but they also pose a risk of doing somebody an injury in an accident that was not their fault, especially if they are poorly managed.

    It may not sound very public-spirited, but if you or your child were to be injured by any of these sorts of thing while attending a school fete, there will be a chance that you could take some form of Pontrhydyfen claims action against the local authority that runs the school.

    School fete accidents and Pontrhydyfen claims

    Imagine that you gave your child a few pounds to go and spend on what she liked at her school fete, while you spent some time chatting to fellow parents. It’s a well-run, quiet school in a nice part of the country, so you have no worries about your child being injured in an accident that was not her fault, let alone being put in a position where taking some form of Pontrhydyfen claims action might be on the cards.

    After half an hour has passed, you notice a commotion over where the pony rides are taking place. A large crowd has gathered around a child who is injured on the ground. You comment that somebody’s son or daughter must have fallen off, and then realise that your daughter is nowhere to be seen. You rush over to the crowd of people and find that your child is lying on the ground with a suspected broken arm.

    As the people who were running the pony rides should have taken steps to avoid this sort of thing from happening, you might be able to take Pontrhydyfen claims action on your child’s behalf, if you could prove that negligence came into play in one way or another.
