Compensation win secures £80k damages for young girl injured at play park
The young girl was attending a birthday party at a play park. She went down the slide and her leg was badly impaled by a picnic bench which was installed very near to the bottom of the slide. Nothing had been placed to prevent children going down the slide or otherwise advise that it was not safe to use. The incident has left the young girl with lasting scarring which she has understandably become very conscious of. Our compensation claim solicitors reached an agreed settlement of £80,000 plus costs in November 2018 to reflect the serious injuries sustained.
Compensation claims such as these are important, not only to help victims with the financial burdens they can potentially face throughout their recovery process, but also to highlight dangers in public places than could cause similar and worse accidents until such time as they are made safe.
If you see a potential danger in a public park, take photographs with your mobile phone and contact your local council.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a similar incident, or have suffered injury or loss as a result of an accident, our personal injury solicitors can assist you with information and advice on how to pursue a claim for compensation.
