West Bromwich is a town that is situated in Sandwell, a metropolitan borough in England. Football fans and enthusiasts are all well aware of West Bromwich, seeing as how it is home to the football club entitled West Bromwich Albion Football Club.
Since West Bromwich is home to over 20 primary schools, 4 secondary schools and a college, you can expect the region to have witnessed several school and university related accidents, over the years.
However, parents may avoid making claims against these schools, as they fear that their children might get expelled for going to such lengths. Self-sustaining students do not claim against their schools for the same reason.
Know that as a student (or as the parent of one), you can form an accident compensation claim in West Bromwich, and that your college or school cannot ask you to leave on those grounds. It is illegal for an institute to do so.
What is the first thing that you need to do, after sustaining an accident?
As a student, your first instinct might be to make a claim against your school or university and to hire a solicitor right away but here’s the thing- you need to think like a claimant and not just as a student.
A claimant, considering making a claim, should visit a doctor. This doctor should be able to confirm, had it not been for the school or university accident, the student would not have sustained injuries.
This will strengthen your case and it is required, in any case, to get an independent medical report.
When should you hire a solicitor?
Once you have collected the evidence that you need, hire a solicitor. He or she will have a look at your case and tell you what you need to do to improve your chances of succeeding. The solicitor might ask you to collect more evidence or inform you of other, possible, grounds on which to make an accident compensation claim in West Bromwich.
Some solicitors charge their clients by the hour while others might work on a no win, no fee policy.
