If you’re a parent, finding things to do with your kids over the long summer holidays can be a bit of a nightmare. The six week period can seem like a lifetime, especially if you don’t have the luxury of relatives who are able to relieve you of your offspring from time to time.
You can’t just sit around the house with them all day or spend hours cruising around your home town, so it’s likely you’ll want to take them to some sort of visitor attraction or theme park to keep them entertained. Depending on where you live and how mobile you are, you’ll have a range of choices, although the suitability of some destinations may depend on the age of your kids.
Regardless of whether you decide to take your progeny to an animal park or somewhere that offers a selection of fairground-like rides, it’s important that you’re aware of the fact that the company that owns the attraction you visit will be responsible for ensuring that you and your party are safe from being injured in an accident that was not your fault.
If you or any of your kids are harmed in an accident that occurs as a result of an attraction-owner’s negligent or irresponsible behaviour, there will be a chance that you might be able to use the services of a decent solicitor to sue for compensation.
Although you will have a responsibility to make sure you and your children adhere to any safety instructions you’re given when you visit any type of children’s attraction, taking legal action using a solicitor over an injury that occurred as a result of an accident that was not your fault will be a very real possibility if you’ve done all you can to remain safe from harm but get injured as a result of an attraction-owner’s behaviour.
If, for example, you were visiting some sort of zoo and one of the animals managed to get loose from its enclosure and bite one of your kids, you may have a case for compensation. If you were at a theme park and you or one of your children was hurt as the result of a ride malfunctioning, you may have a no win no fee* in Thirsk claim.
