A young boy was playing in an activity park under his mother’ssupervision. When his mother told him it was time to leave he followed her to walk out to the gate.
He tripped and hit his head on the wooden fence surrounding the apparatus. A nail entered his cheek causing penetrative injury. As soon as the child hit the ground he stared to cry in pain and in shock.
The lacerations and puncture injury was to his mouth and cheek area. His mother took him to A&E where paper stitches applied.
The child was left with a small scar of 3.2 cm. After the accident occurred the child could not eat properly and was upset for several months following the child accident.
He was more anxious around play grounds and asked his mother for permission. For his child injuries compensation he was awarded £3,800.
