We acted for A, a child aged 8 ½ at the time of the injury and 12 at the date of trial. On the day of the accident she was playing in the hopscotch area of the playground when she was hit in the eye by a tennis ball that was being used in an alternative game during her lunch time play.
The direct blunt trauma to the eye caused a serious injury including a right sided choroidal rupture. This injury affected her central vision and has left A with partial sight problems.
How we helped claim compensation
We presented the claim to the Defendants, the school A attended at the time of the accident. They denied liability on the grounds that the equipment used to play the tennis game was adequately safe to be used in schools and that the play was properly supervised. We pursued this claim to trial. We produced witnesses, records of the school and expert evidence that challenged the Defendant’s argument. We won at trial where A was awarded a provisional settlement of £11,500.
If your child has suffered a similar injury at school or nursery, you may be entitled to a No Win No Fee compensation claim. Contact our team of expert personal injury solicitors today to find out how we can help you.
