The unnamed 12-year-old sustained a seven-centimetre gash on her shin when she fell a distance of around three metres through a gap on a faulty fairground ride at Star City - an entertainment complex that opened in July 2000 - in Birmingham in October 2009.
At the time, she was on the Tagada attraction and an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed that an important horizontal rail in the barrier gate of the ride was missing.
More than two years on from the incident, the girl still suffers pain as the wound has not fully healed and the scar continues to ache.
Pam Folsom, inspector at the HSE, commented: "This was an entirely avoidable incident that resulted in a serious injury to a child ... fairground operators must inspect rides for faults every day."
