We acted for the parents of a young man (who was only aged 12) who was a member of his local football club. During September 2008, after training had finished for the evening, he and his team mates were running around the football clubhouse in order to keep warm. Positioned adjacent to the clubhouse doorway/steps were two large concrete slabs measuring approximately 3ft by 1ft and about 6” apart which had been left on the grass following some building work at the clubhouse. Whilst he was running past these slabs one of his feet got caught between the two slabs which resulted in him sustaining a spiral fracture of his left tibia and fibula. He had to be taken to hospital but fortunately did not require any surgery. His symptoms resolved within a period of about 18 months following his accident.
