We acted for M, a child who injured himself while at a soft play centre. M tripped on the difference in height between 2 mats immediately in front of a tunnel entrance. This caused him to fall forward and collide with the tunnel edge, which appeared sharp and unpadded.
M suffered a laceration above the eye. He attended hospital where the wound was glued together and dressed. The laceration healed nicely but M has been left with residual scarring.
How we helped claim compensation
We presented the claim to the Defendants who denied liability. They indicated that they had an adequate risk assessment and that the edge of the tunnel was not sharp enough to cause injury. Nevertheless we were confident that our client’s claim had good prospects of success and took his claim to trial. We succeeded at trial were M was awarded just under £5,000 compensation.
I have been very satisfied throughout and would not hesitate in using your services again.Mrs T
Once again, thank you for all your help and dedicated work. You played a pivotal role in shaping both mine and my wife’s road to recovery.Mr O P-S | Manchester
