As every childcare professional knows all too well, there is always a risk of injury when interacting with children – particularly those with physical or mental difficulties. It is easier than you would think to fall victim to the uncontrolled limbs of a raging toddler, or to simply slip and fall badly on a discarded toy. However, if you have been the victim of an accident that could have been avoided, you may be eligible to file a nanny accident claim.
In this sort of environment, a degree of risk must be accepted. If a child causes harm accidentally, it is not always appropriate to look for somebody to blame. Yet, there are certain circumstances under which this would be a suitable action to take. For example, if you were appointed as a nanny, but were not informed of the violent tendencies of a particular child before accepting the position.
You may be able to file a nanny accident claim if you have sustained injuries as the result of an unsafe or poorly maintained environment too. You may trip and fall while climbing unsafe stairs, or cut yourself on an unfinished DIY project, just as an example.

Why should I make a nanny accident claim?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that injuries sustained while trying to earn a salary can be tough to recover from – particularly if they end up forcing you to take time off work. It is even harder to come to terms with costly medical bills and a loss of earnings if you are certain that the accident could have been easily avoided with a little more care on the part of a third party.
Why should you miss earnings if you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, and could have easily been prevented? We will take loss of earnings, material damage, and medical bills into account when processing your nanny accident claim for compensation.
How do I make a claim?
After a short consultation process, we will provide you with a clear recommendation. If we decide that your nanny accident claim is suitable for further proceedings, details of the accident, injuries, and apparent causes will be recorded for later use in court.
If your claim is determined to be potentially successful, our experts will need to start compiling a strong case, backed up by strong evidence. This means that photographs of both your injuries, and the environment in which they were sustained, could be extremely useful. Call us today to discuss your potential claim.
