About children’s accidents

All parents try their best to keep their children safe and protected but, sadly, children are still vulnerable to being injured due to someone else’s negligence. Situations where injuries are likely to occur include:

If your child has been involved in an accident caused by another person, those responsible can be held liable for their injury, and you will be entitled to receive compensation on behalf of your child for their injuries and distress.

Who is responsible?

Responsibility for a child’s injury varies depending on where the accident took place. If the incident happened in a place where an adult should have been supervising, then they may be liable for any injuries.

Should an accident occur in a public place like a playground or park, it is the responsibility of your local council to make sure that all play equipment is in good working condition. Also, depending on the area, councils must maintain roads, paths and other roadways.
