If you have small children, you’ll probably be all too aware that no matter how many times you tell them that they shouldn’t do something for their own safety, it rarely sinks in. You can’t really blame them, especially seeing as they’re probably no talking yet. To compensate for the fact that children don’t understand that they could hurt themselves if they behave in certain way, parents keep a close eye on them.
As they obviously can’t do this 100% of the time, to compensate even further, parents buy safety equipment such as stair gates to make sure their kids can’t do anything when they have their backs turned.
Just as parents have a moral responsibility to do all that they can to make sure their children are kept as far out of harm’s way as possible, as do businesses that as a matter of course have children visiting their premises. If your child were to be injured while on the premises of a business they were visiting, there will be a chance that you might be able to take some form of personal injury action against the firm on your child’s behalf with the help of a top 100% no win no fee solicitors in Little Walsingham.
