Child suffers leg injury in accident on unfenced building site

Personal Injury Claim


What happened?

This was a serious child accident claim following an incident on a building site.

An 11 year old boy had been playing with a friend on a buiding site. They had been able to enter the site without any problem as it was unfenced – despite the fact that there were various items of building machinery lying around, as well as some small skips.

The boys had started to play on the skips. One of the skips tipped over and trapped our client’s leg causing him a serious leg injury. In fact, he suffered a fractured tibia and fibula.

The first problem was to identify the company responsible for the building site. After lengthy negotiations, they finally conceded that the site should have been secured.

The Court approved a settlement of £11,000.00 for our client.
