When it comes to children growing up, at some point or another they will generally have to attend a nursery. Nurseries can be a great option for busy working parents who do not have time to look after their children during the day. For two parents that are busy working full time, it can be a great way to ensure that their child is looked after in a fun and educational environment while they are busy at work supporting the household.

Unfortunately, as with any situation with children nurseries can be a potentially dangerous environment and without the correct supervision, children can be easily injured and sometimes incur serious injuries. If your child has been injured in a nursery through the negligence of a supervising adult, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

How can an injury occur in a nursery?

When it comes to nurseries they often involve a number of toys, and even playground equipment options to help entertain your child. As with any equipment or toy, your child requires constant supervision to ensure that they are using this item safely at all times. In general, nurseries are run by well-trained professionals, but in some situations even the most professional employee could be negligent and forget to momentarily keep an eye on your child.

If this situation occurs your child may slip off a piece of equipment or use an item that wasn’t intended to be a toy, which in turn could result in a number of serious injuries. 

What kind of injuries can be received?

When it comes to children they can receive a number of injuries, some of the most common include:

  • Bruises, cuts and grazes from trips and falls
  • Knocks to heads and bumps
  • Broken limbs if they have fallen from a height
  • Nausea or sickness if they have ingested a foreign material.

Who could I claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation there are a number of parties whom you could make claim against and these centre around the support staff that are employed by the nursery to look after your children. In general, if you have left your child in the care of a nursery group they are responsible for ensuring that your child is safe and supervised at all times, if they neglect to perform this part of their job correctly then you could be eligible to make a claim.
