If you have children, you will be familiar of how much of a struggle it can be while you’re out and about to find baby changing facilities, unless you’re in the middle of a town centre. In most cases you’ll find that business owners will be quite happy for you to use their facilities, even if you are not making a purchase, unless you are particularly unlucky. It would take a pretty mean business owner to turn down the pleas of a parent keen to change their baby’s soiled nappy.
However, you will find that not all baby changing facilities are born equal. While some are well appointed and kept scrupulously clean, others leave quite a lot to be desired. Nevertheless, you will have right to expect that any baby changing facilities that you use will not pose a risk of doing your child an injury in an accident that was neither your or your baby’s fault.
If this were to happen, there will be a possibility that you might find yourself in a position where you may be able to retain the services of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ West Devon accident at work compensation law firm with a view to seeking a payout on your child’s behalf.
Baby changing facility injuries and West Devon accident at work compensation
Imagine that you had been searching high and low for some baby changing facilities so as you could change your son or daughter’s nappy. Eventually you find somewhere. The facilities don’t look great, but you don’t suspect for one moment that using them might pose a risk of doing your child an injury in an accident that was not your fault and then being put in a position where seeking a West Devon accident at work compensation pay-out might be an option.
The facilities you use have one of those fold-down baby changing platforms. You place your child on this and set about getting on with the job in hand. As you’re doing so, the platform suddenly gives way, falling to the ground and taking your child with it. Your child loses her two front milk teeth after falling face-first onto the concrete floor. Not very nice.
