Holiday accident solicitor response
As a parent you can act as a litigation friend – providing instructions on behalf of your son – but it will be your son’s claim. Click child injury claim to see the page I have written explaining the unique procedure for claiming compensation for children.
As to the strength of your child’s claim – I believe the chances of success are good, both against the activity holiday organisers and possibly even against the school.
The instructor should be supervising the children properly and it seems is directly responsible for throwing the rope which injured your child.
