Who is accountable or liable following a pediatric concussion?

Any adult supervising a child owes them a duty of care to keep them reasonably safe from dangers and injuries. If that adult has been negligent, or if the organization responsible for maintaining a safe environment or facilitating safe activities has been negligent, they could be liable for your child’s injury.

Even if they were not negligent prior to the accident occurring, they may be liable for contributing to a worsening injury if they do not take steps to notify the child’s parents or ensure the child receives prompt medical attention.
