Schoolgirl's mother to seek damages for broken arm

Schoolgirl s mother to seek damages for broken arm 2420

Broken bones sustained during an accident are likely to result in a schoolgirl's mother seeking personal injury compensation on her behalf.

According to the Liverpool Echo, five-year-old Ellie-May Rood suffered two fractures in her arm when she fell off some crates in the playground of Ravenscroft Primary School in Kirkby last week.

The child subsequently had to be taken to Alder Hey children's hospital via ambulance where she underwent four hours of surgery.

Her mother Amanda claims doctors believe the girl may not have full use of the limb again for another five or six years due to the fact her elbow joint was shattered in the incident.

Ms Rood told the news source her daughter was wrongly left unsupervised by staff at the school and indicated she is considering taking legal action for their negligence.

Recently, the Haverhill Weekly News reported that Jamie Griffin had been awarded £7,500 in damages after an accident at Burton End Primary School left him with a fractured skull.
