We offer a professional and efficient service to individuals across the United Kingdom. Call our 24-hour free helpline now to see what we can do for you.
Local councils invest millions in youth and play services in order to encourage children to get active and develop personal skills. The duty of care to young children is extremely important, so health and safety measures must always be followed to minimise potential risks. These health and safety measures also extend to staff, supervisors, and volunteers at youth organisations. For example, if you were injured while attempting to erect a large structure, or pack away equipment, then a third party could be liable if that activity actually required more than one person. You have every right to make a claim if the organisation was at fault, and you are now suffering the consequences of a serious accident.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help?
Accident Advice Helpline can make a claim against the organisation if they are liable. You should not worry about the impact on the third party as insurance policies usually cover accidents to staff and other workers. Just because you are not getting paid does not mean that the organisation can be absolved of any blame if you were injured. It is up to them to provide appropriate instructions for tasks and activities, and to flag any possible health and safety hazards.
If you were injured while helping a children’s organisation, then it may have had a profound affect on your everyday life. You may now be unable to go to work and earn a living, or meet the costs of private counselling and other medical fees. We aim to bring a degree of justice by making sure that those at fault are made aware of their negligence and made to pay for it some way. A monetary sum can allow you to move forward once again, and start a new chapter in your life without the risk of financial ruin.
