Helping people with playground injury claims

Taking your children to a playground, recreation ground, adventure park, skateboard park, trampoline park should be an enjoyable and memorable experience, however, sometimes it’s memorable for all the wrong reasons and can result in a serious injury. We see many adults and children who are injured as a result of poorly maintained or faulty equipment.

It is estimated that there are around 40,000 injuries to children in playgrounds each year which result in a visit to a hospital.

If you or your child is injured in a playground accident or adventure park or trampoline park , the Playground Manager or Adventure Park Owner (usually the local authority) or the business owner if it is a private park such as a trampoline park can often be sued for negligence, especially if it can be proven that they have failed to take reasonable precautions against accidents or that they have not ensured their equipment is safe.

Our Personal Injury Solicitors are experts in dealing with these claims and can help you get access to support, medical treatment and rehabilitation as well as ensuring you get the compensation you deserve.

Contact our Personal Injury Solicitors and ask if we can deal with your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.

What does the law say about Public Playground Accidents?

The owner of manager of a public playground has a duty of care to those who use it. This is to ensure that the equipment is safe, it’s maintained, and they are providing a safe and secure environment for children to play. In order to ensure that this is being done there should also be regular checks to make sure it is up to standard. If they fail to do this and there is an accident as a result, then there may be grounds to claim compensation.

    We May Have to Go to Court

    If the Playground Manager doesn’t accept liability, then we may have to go to Court. If this happens, we will be there to support you every step of the way.
