Babysitting can be done as a favour to someone you know, or you might be doing it professionally. Most babysitters are young and do not normally have the awareness of what they are entitled to, but this is where were can help.
People are injured everyday in a wide range of accidents that are not their fault. As a babysitter, if you were working in someone else’s house, then the home-owners or tenants have a responsibility – a duty of care – to ensure that your working environment is safe. As long as the injury was not your own fault, you could have a case to pursue a babysitter accident claim.
Making a claim
A claim will help you if your injuries directly led to time off work and subsequent loss of earnings. If the accident was traumatic then you may have suffered psychological trauma, which means you might need counselling to help you fully recover. The resulting financial loss is something that the lawyer assigned to your case will aim to get back in your compensation package.
If you are worried about your finances, then do not worry about how much you will need to pay us to make a babysitter accident claim. With us there are no upfront costs, as we operate on a no-win, no-fee policy. We don’t even charge you to call us – our helpline is free to call.
With the advice we give you, you will have a good idea whether or not you have a good chance of making a successful babysitter accident claim. To help build your case, you will need to provide us with as much evidence as possible about the accident.
