‘Supervision of minors and extra vigilance can save lives and prevent injuries this August’, according to InjuriesBoard.ie and Children’s University Hospital Temple Street (CUH). Injuries Board data shows that accidents to minors (in a public place) are five times more likely to occur in August than in December, making it the most dangerous month of the year.
Last year, one in ten public liability awards were made to minors with incidents occurring in playgrounds, sports grounds, shops, schools and footpaths and resulting mainly in multiple and soft tissue type injuries. Around 126 minors were awarded compensation totalling €2.18 million, or an average of €17,307.50.
