Do you remember school discos from your youth? They typically occur at the end of term or at other periods where there is something to celebrate – perhaps after exams have been completed for example.
Most children enjoy the experience and go home feeling as if they have had a great time. Very few of them will ever have the need to attend an A&E department or their own GP’s surgery because they have been injured in some way.
School disco injury compensation is a form of compensation that might be payable when someone is hurt by attending a disco in a school. Injuries could vary from ones that are relatively minor to ones that are very serious indeed. Luckily very few people will ever go through an experience such as this one.
How do you know if you or your child could claim school disco injury compensation?
The big question you have to ask is how the injury happened. You must be able to prove that someone else was the person responsible for the accident occurring in the first place. For example, if you tripped over because you were running through the school hall this would probably be your fault.
However, if the floor was wet and slippery yet there were no signs indicating this, and you were walking through the hall at the time, this would probably be construed as negligence.
The best way to work out whether you could be due to receive an amount of compensation is to discuss your situation with a professional injury compensation law firm. We work on a no win, no fee* basis meaning you will not be put at any financial risk for undertaking this process.
