Negligence is a word most of us are aware of. Yet many of us will have no experience of being in a situation where we have suffered injuries due to someone else’s negligent behaviour.
This can happen in all kinds of situations and venues, including schools for example. While most pupils will go through their school years without incident, there is a chance some of them could be hurt at some stage and receive injuries as a result.
It may be uncommon for pupils to be injured, but for those who experience something like this it can be exceptionally upsetting and even life-changing. A broken leg could keep a pupil off school for some time and interfere with their learning. A head injury could be life-changing. Even a minor injury can be painful and frightening, especially for younger children.
What are the odds that school negligence injury compensation could be paid out?
Every situation is different and the amount paid in a successful claims process will depend on the injuries received, how serious they are and how they occurred. For example, a broken finger would not incur as much compensation as a situation where a finger has to be amputated. All the facts are borne in mind when determining whether or not a compensation claim is successful.
However it does help to have professional advice and support to count on. A lot of people resort to contacting a professional injury compensation lawyer. Since many of these offer their services on a no win, no fee* basis, much like Accident Advice Helpline for example, it makes sense to put them to good use just when you need them most.
