    Advice on personal injury claims in Sefton


    As a parent, you need to know your child is in good hands and safe in school. Accidents in schools are inevitable but the law requires school administrators and teachers to do everything possible to minimise or prevent accidents from happening. When your child is injured, the first question in your mind is who is responsible? Our personal injury solicitors can give you advice on personal injury claims in Sefton in order to understand how the personal injury law works in regards to negligence of school administrators, teaching and non-teaching staff.

    School liability

    To ensure students are adequately protected from potential injuries, its upon the school administrators, teaching and non teaching staff to ensure that they do everything possible to protect students from potential harm, injury or death.

    One of these duties involves providing a safe environment for students. The school administration must see to it that repairs are carried out or possible hazards eliminated as quickly as possible and ensure students receive proper supervision while on school grounds, onboard the school bus or while off the school grounds during school sponsored extracurricular activities.

    When a school fails to protect its student/s from potential harm, then it’s held liable and you as a parent upon receiving advice on personal injury claims in Sefton can make an injury claim and seek compensation. Compensation will help cater for your child’s medical, chiropractic and therapy bills, our-of-pocket medications, crutches, slings, travel expenses etc.

    How do you prove your case…Evidence!!!

    If you believe that your child’s injury was caused by the school’s actions or inactions, then you need to gather as much evidence as you can. It must show that school failed to minimise or eliminate a potential hazard or the school failed to properly monitor or coordinate activities that your child was involved in.

    Photographs

    Take as many photographs as you can with dates and timestamps and from all angles showing the hazard that led to your child’s injury

    Witness statements

    These are very important went proving your claim. Good Samaritans who came to your child’s rescue can give a detailed account of what really happened. The school nurse who treated your child immediately after the accident is very helpful, although reaching out to them to get a statement about the injury and treatment of your child can present difficulties.

    To prove that your child was injured due to negligence you need medical records showing your child’s injuries were caused by negligence.
