Claimant, aged 7 years old, was injured in the playground of his school.
The Claimant was playing on the playground apparatus when his foot went through the defective step and he thereafter butted his chin on the top step, which entered the slide.
The Claimant required 3 stitches in his chin and as a result of the injury at school, has been left with permanent scarring to his face.
The Claimant’s Litigation Friend made a claim for compensation following the incident and the scarring was measured at 2inches. The minor was thereafter awarded with £2,100.00 in compensation.
