Can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
You may be eligible to file a claim for financial remuneration if your conkers injury occurred within the last three years, and was a direct result of the negligence of a third party. In some cases it can be difficult to attribute blame, but if the accident could have been avoided, there is no doubt that you deserve to be vindicated for your injuries – financial, physical and emotional.
These kinds of incidents usually take place during playtime in schools, particularly during the winter months. You may not be a victim yourself, but your child may have been hurt as a result of improper policies on the handling of conkers. In fact, thousands of children are injured every year whilst playing conkers – it is not a totally harmless pastime.
If your child suffers an injury as a result of playing conkers at school, you may be eligible to file a claim – especially if it becomes clear that the school was not supervising your child in the correct manner, or did not have proper measures in place to prevent pupils from playing dangerously with conkers or other outdoor debris.
What is a conkers accident?
The most common type of injury related to the handling of conkers is serious damage to the face and eyes. In very serious cases facial injuries and collisions can eventually lead to blindness, so this is an issue that must always be considered with the necessary sensitivity and care.
If a local council or authority has a duty to keep public spaces free from debris but fails in this duty and a person trips or falls as a result, there may be a valid claim to be made. This is particularly true in cases where injuries lead to the loss of earnings or costly medical bills.
To find out whether or not you are eligible to file a claim for compensation, pick up the phone and give our experts a call on 0800 689 0500. We operate a free, 24-hour helpline, so you can arrange a consultation at almost any time. You can also call for additional conkers injury advice, or for information on how to get in touch with counselling services.
