Accident Advice Helpline provides expert secondary school injury advice to teachers and pupils that have been involved in accidents at school. Unfortunately, accidents in secondary school are a common occurrence with slips and falls likely to occur on a daily basis due to active and outgoing children partaking in sporting activities and other games. Most of the time there is no one at fault, but if you or your child has been injured and a third party was negligent, then our expert solicitors can help you to make a no-win, no-fee claim to cover the costs of the injury.
Common school injuries
You can make a secondary school personal injury claim if you or your child slipped on a wet floor or fell over a structure or piece of equipment that should not have been there. You could also claim if you have been involved in a sports-related accident that was the fault of another person or have contracted food poisoning while eating at the canteen. There is a three-year deadline to make a claim for any injuries so we suggest taking action sooner rather than later, as you may soon be unable to get the compensation your deserve. You or your child must also have received medical treatment for any of the injuries sustained. If you think you can make a claim, then use our 30-second online compensation calculator to see how much you may be able get.
Secondary school accidents do not always take place within the school grounds. If you have been injured during a school trip, then a teacher may to be blame if they failed to supervise to sufficient standard or failed to keep pupils from danger. You could also claim if you were injured in a school bus accident. The requirements are different for every accident, so we suggest getting in touch with a helpful advisor at Accident Advice Helpline to see whether we can help you with your personal injury claim.
A successful claim always requires sufficient evidence, so it is vitally important that you note down all of the relevant details about the accident at the time or as soon as you are feeling better. Witness accounts, dates and times, photographs and other small details can help to build a large body of evidence to support your claim. This will make it easier for our expert solicitors to get the compensation you need.
Making a claim with us is simple and straightforward. Our no-win, no-fee policy means there are no fees to pay upfront, which is especially important if you are struggling financially after the accident. Covering the costs of private medical bills and supplementing lost income can be extremely difficult following a serious accident. We cannot bring those responsible to justice, but we can teach them a lesson by sharing the burden of compensation. If someone was at fault, it should not be up to you to cover the costs of an injury.
To get started with your claim, text “claim365” to 88010 or call our free 24-hour helpline, 0800 180 1423.
