Child Wins Compensation After Falling From Monkey Bars
The Child, an 8 year-old girl, was awarded £2,750 for the fractured arm suffered in an accident at her after school club.
The child was playing in the playground on the monkey bars with friends when she fell off the apparatus and onto the hard concrete floor beneath her, causing her injury.
The floor beneath the monkey bars had previously been covered with rubber tarmac to cushion any children that fell however this had deteriorated over time and had not been replaced.
Following further investigations and complaints about the flooring in the playground, the after school club repaired the area with rubber tarmac..
The child’s parents on behalf of the child brought a child injury claim against the defendant, claiming that it was negligent in failing to maintain the safety of the child.
