Child injury stressed hug adultA child aged 21 months at the time of the accident  cut his finger on an uncovered faulty drainpipe whilst playing outside in nursery.

After the accident the child’s finger was bleeding extensively. He was very distressed. The child was taken to A&E, where the wound was closed with steristrips. Subsequently he needed to attend the nurse at his GP surgery on several occasions for redressing of the wound.

After the accident the laceration was painful whenever the Child knocked his hand during play. The child tended to guard his hand to prevent knocking it and over the first few weeks after the accident he was not as rambunctious as usual. The childs parents struggled with bath time as the wound site had to be kept clean and dry.

After 7 to 10 days the wound had healed. ,  When the wound healed the child was left with a V-shaped scar measuring 1cm each side at the base of his little finger just below the crease of the metacarpophalangeal joint. The scar was only noticeable on very close inspection. The prognosis was for the scar to diminish with time.

The child’s parents decided to claim child compensation for his injury and were successfull.
