My son was injured at school when in year 8, he is now completing year 12. Apparently he was running on a concrete pathway and tripped and fell. We were called to the hospital as he was in the emergency ward. The doctor was concerned that they may have to relieve the pressure on his brain. As it turned out this wasn't required. After getting over the initial shock of seeing my son in such a state and calming my daughter, who had accompanied him to the hospital I realised there was no skin off his body what so ever. I asked the question, if he was running and tripped, surely there'd be skin off him from hitting the ground, wouldn't there. I asked the doctor this question to which he replied that if my son had lost conciseness before hitting the ground he wouldn't have put his hands out to protect his fall so there would be no skin off his hands. Having said this the only visible signs that there was anything wrong with my son were the cords and wires hanging off him from the emergency ward, a vomit bag, him being unconscious. As a result he spent 3-4 days in the hospital and lost his peripheral-vision in his right eye. We have been told this will never return...it has already had an affect on his future as he was wanting to join the RAAF as a pilot! My son has no recollection of the events as his subconsciousness has blocked this out. We did ask more questions and eventually a young man came forward and admitted he had pushed my son. the assumption I have is that he was hit.... Is there any legal track we can take for Personal Injury compensation for my son due to this injury limiting his future endeavors?
