Child injury Claim – child suffers laceration to arm from broken drainpipe in nursery.
The drainpipe had been broken for some time and staff at the nursery were aware of it however they still let the child play in the area around it.
The child was playing on a pushbike outside during play time when he toppled off the bike and cut his arm on the exposed broken drainpipe.
After the accident the child’s arm 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 arm during play. The child tended to guard his arm 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 14 to 21days the wound had healed , When the wound healed the child was left with a V-shaped scar measuring 2cm. 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.
