If you have been injured while working in a school then the question that you want an answer to could be ‘Can I claim for an accident as a teaching assistant?’ The answer to this is ‘yes’; you may well have a valid claim for compensation if you have been injured while working as a teaching assistant. Working with others, children included, can leave you vulnerable and if an accident does occur then you should note that it may not be your fault and compensation may be payable.
Who is responsible for the accident?
In any workplace the responsibility for health and safety rests with the employer. Here, at Accident Advice Helpline, our team of professionals will explain all of this to you when you first call us. If you have not had the right training, or the working environment is unsafe, you will be entitled to compensation if you have been injured as a result. Many types of injuries can occur because of an accident while working as a teaching assistant. Your employers should be aware of the possibilities and take all practical measures to prevent them. It may be that this has not happened and this could leave you wondering ‘Can I claim for an accident as a teaching assistant?’
How can I claim compensation?
Your first step is to speak to one of the experienced compensation lawyers working for Accident Advice Helpline. We are a law firm of many years standing that specialises in personal injury claims and all you have to do is ring our 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500 and talk to us about your situation. Once we have taken all the details of the accident we can determine if you have valid grounds for a claim. We will not encourage you to pursue a claim if we do not believe that it can be won.
The reason for this is that we operate on a no win, no fee basis. There is no benefit to us to pursue a false claim. It also means that you will not be asked to pay anything upfront in order to take legal action. At Accident Advice Helpline we believe that legal action should be available to anybody who has been affected in this way, so if you do want to take legal action you do not need to have a lot of money in the bank first.
Once you have given us your details you do not need to do anything else. We will handle the claim on your behalf and you will not be asked to deal directly with the other party at all because we do that for you. Our experienced compensation solicitors will keep you informed throughout the process of the claim and you do not need to worry. Getting the compensation you deserve will also help prevent any financial worries, so if you have been injured because of the actions of others then give us a call on 0800 689 0500.
