Are you wondering if you can claim against your university if you’re injured on a trip? If so, the good news is yes, you will normally be able to claim if you have been injured on an excursion and your university failed in their duty of care to you. Field trips can be fun as well as educational, but the consequences can be dire if you are hurt on one. You could be forced to take time away from university recovering and you may even have to leave your job and therefore lose earnings. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are waiting to hear from you if you have been hurt on a university trip and it wasn’t your fault, so why not contact us today to find out what to do next?
Do you need to claim against your university?
No matter where you headed to on your trip, if you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence, there’s a big chance we will be able to help you get compensation. University staff need to follow health and safety procedures at all times, and any equipment you’re given to use whilst on your excursion should be free of defects. We may still be able to help if the blame for the accident lies with another organisation, so if you went skiing or swimming whilst on your trip and came to harm, we can help you hold those responsible to account and get you the compensation you need and deserve.
We will need you to hand over as much evidence related to your accident and injuries as possible, such as photos of your injuries, witness statements and contact details, receipts for medical expenses and so on. The accident must have happened in the last three years and you must have seen a medical professional about your injuries. We may be able to help you whether your accident happened in the UK or overseas.
