Claiming compensation in the Forest Dean is the right of anyone who has been injured through no fault of their own.
People often complain that the so-called “compensation culture” is changing the way in which people live. One of the most common examples used to illustrate this point is school trips.
Claiming compensation in the Forest of Dean is no bad thing
These days, the argument goes that claiming compensation in the Forest Dean, or anywhere else here in the country, has made teachers loath to taking pupils on trips that might pose a risk of a student being injured in an accident that was not their fault. It is regularly said that this happens because parents these days jump at the chance to litigate over incidents that 20 or 30 years ago would have just been pretty much ignored.
But is this a bad thing? Would you want your child being taken somewhere he or she might be at a risk of being involved in an accident that was not his or her fault? Probably not. Personal injury law exists for a reason.
Although the primary purpose of personal injury litigation is to arrive at some form of compensation for an injured party, it also acts as a deterrent which can persuade people not to behave in a manner that might result in a person being injured in an accident that was not their fault.
As such, you should have no qualms about taking personal injury action against your child’s school, or one of its contractors, and you can employ the services of a no win no fee* injury claim lawyer should the need arise.
School accidents and personal injury action
School trip accidents happen all of the time. For example your child might get injured in a road traffic accident that involved a coach used on a school trip. If the crash occurred because of the negligent behaviour of the driver, and your child was injured as a result, you might well have a case.
In circumstances such as these, you would either need to take action against the school, if the coach or bus was being driven by a teacher, or the coach firm that the school had hired.
