    Can I claim for an accident at Girlguiding?


    Can I claim for an accident at Girlguiding?

    Injury prevention

    There are currently over 500,000 active members in Girlguiding, aged between 5 and 26. These young women meet on a weekly basis to take part in exciting challenges and activities, such as adventure sports and performing arts. It is impossible to eliminate personal injuries entirely due to the nature of the activities involved. The vast majority of accidents that do take place are innocuous, and could not have been prevented. There are currently more than 100,000 volunteers helping the Guiding Association, and all volunteers prioritise health and safety. The majority also have certificates and have completed training courses.

    Injuries caused by negligence

    However, there are circumstances when supervisors and volunteers do fail a standard duty of care. Even if their intentions were honest, they can be held liable if their negligence resulted in you or your child sustaining serious injuries. Common Girlguiding injuries include trips, slips, and falls. You can make a personal injury compensation claim if the trip or fall could have been prevented. For example, if you were partaking in adventure sports and you fell over an object or slipped on a surface that was dangerous, then you can file a claim if a volunteer failed to tell you about the potential risks.

    Claim requirements

    There is a three-year deadline for the majority of personal injury claims, so you do not want to wait too long before taking action. Making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline could change your life. If you are being weighed down by expensive medical bills, or have had to install a new apparatus to help your child cope with the consequences of a serious injury, then a claim can help to recover those costs. You should not have to fund anything that is directly attributed to the accident and the injuries that were sustained.

    We will use evidence from the accident to support your case. We will need to establish how it happened and collate witness statements, as well as all the details regarding your injuries including diagnosis and treatment. You should also provide financial documents if you want us to prove a loss if earnings.
