Playground accidents in Scotland are quite common. Many are simply the result of horseplay between the children, but others are caused through faulty play equipment an inadequate protective floor surfaces.
It is the legal responsibility of the playground owners, either local council or school, to ensure that everyone who uses the playground is safe. As children are less careful than adults, the law often imposes a greater duty of care on occupiers to ensure their safety.
If your child has suffered an accident in a playground or other play area due to faulty or inappropriate equipment, or by falling and injuring themselves on the floor surface, you could make a compensation claim.
