An accident while you are studying away from home might leave you wondering, ‘can I claim against my university?’ If the accident was the result of a breach of health and safety, then you may be in a strong position to make a claim against your university. All organisations need to pay close attention to health and safety. After all, most accidents are preventable, and there is no need for anyone to be hurt unnecessarily. It could be that you slipped on a wet floor in your halls of residence, tripped over a hazard when leaving a lecture room, or have been injured while playing sports as part of a university team. Whatever the case, it is important to find out if it could have been prevented, and to find out if you have grounds to make a claim.

Why do I need compensation?
Many students these days have a part-time job, and if you are injured while at university you might not be able to go to work. As students often live on a small income, this could really leave you struggling. It is also a good idea for students that do not normally work, as there are other expenses that come about because of an accident, such as care and time lost at university. This is why you should pursue a claim for compensation if you are able to.
Compensation can help you to cover all those student expenses that keep mounting, whether you have an income or not. Rent, tuition, general living expenses and books are not tiny expenses, and you need to find the money to pay them. Contacting Accident Advice Helpline can make all the difference if you are wondering if you can claim against your university. It only takes a couple of minutes to find out more, so you have absolutely nothing to lose by picking up the phone.
