Attending a night school can be a great way to gain new skills and attain a new perspective on the world. Night schools allow you to continue working or meeting your other responsibilities during the daytime, making them ideal for many adults.
Going to night school, you are unlikely to consider your personal safety to be at risk, but unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time. As a result, you might be wondering if you can claim for an accident at a night school.
This is where Accident Advice Helpline can help. Since 2000, we have helped thousands of innocent accident victims, ensuring that they can access personalised accident advice and no win no fee* legal representation. Esther Rantzen, a known UK consumer champion and television personality, is our patron.
The claims process for an accident at a night school
If you suffered an injury at a night school in the last three years that was not your fault, you can potentially make a claim. Check your legal rights by calling our 24-hour helpline on a landline at 0800 689 0500 or, if you are using a mobile phone, 0333 500 0993. To receive a call directly from one of our advisors on your mobile phone, you can text ‘claim365′ to 88010.
If you do not have time to call us, you can also try the 30-second test we have available on our website. Answer just six short questions about your accident at a night school, and you can get an estimate of what your claim could be worth. You can also browse our website pages to find out more about us and what the claim process can mean for you.
When you contact us, we will go through your night school accident with you in as much detail as possible. This is so that we can assess what kind of risks you were exposed to, and whether you can claim for an accident at a night school based on a breach of health and safety regulations. After all, a school should be a place of learning, not of danger.
Building your claim for an accident at a night school
Evidence is an important part of the claims process. For example, if classmates witnessed your accident, their written accounts could be very helpful.
Clear photographs, (preferably in colour) of where the accident took place, as well as the nature of your injuries, can also be essential in building a strong claim for an accident at a night school.
If we determine that you have a viable claim, we will offer you representation through one of our expert solicitors. In most cases, claims can be processed over the phone rather than having to visit court.
One medical assessment (in addition to whatever medical care you have already sought for your injuries) might be needed. You are under no obligation to proceed with a claim once you have contacted us for advice.
