Mother must pay for crazy golf accident

A mother whose son blinded a friend in his left eye while playing crazy golf has been told she must pay damages to the injured boy. A High Court judge said she was negligent in not telling the “boisterous” ten-year-old to keep his club low as she knew his character traits. The judgment overturned a ruling at Leicester County Court last year which found that the boy, referred to only as J, was “not a dangerous child” although he was sometimes impulsive. The compensation is expected to be in six figures.
