Thompsons Solicitors recently obtained £2000 in compensation for a child who was on holiday in Ayrshire. The 8 year old was visiting the Heads of Ayr Farm Park in August 2008 when the enjoyment of his holiday was cut short when he was injured whilst playing in the children’s play area.
He was attempting to cross a rope on an indoor assault course when his knee was injured as a result of an exposed nail. When the family initially approached the Farm Park they were told that they would not be receiving any compensation as it was only a tack that he had knelt on. They also advised that another child could have dropped the tack and therefore they were not liable.
The family then contacted Thompsons Solicitors who then quickly managed to obtain an admission of liability from the Insurers of the Farm Park.
