Have you been hurt whilst at University?
Although students at University or college are more independent than students who are still at school, their University still owes them a duty of care. This means that the University facilities should meet the relevant health and safety standards and that students shouldn’t be at risk of suffering an injury.
As many students live in accommodation provided by the University, such as in Halls of Residence, it is up to the University to maintain these accommodations and ensure that they are safe and habitable. Whilst students may not be the ideal tenants all the time, the buildings must be kept safe for all residents.
However, if you’re hurt whilst you’re at University and it wasn’t your fault, there may be action that you can take. In addition to making a complaint to the University, you could also take legal action and, with help from an experienced solicitor in Ifield, you could successfully obtain compensation.
Should I wait until I’ve graduated until I contact an experienced solicitor in Ifield?
Although you don’t have to make a claim straightaway after an incident, you may not want to wait too long after the incident. Making a claim more quickly can mean that you receive your compensation faster which could come in handy while you’re trying to study.
If you’re concerned that making a claim with an injury solicitor in Ifield will affect you negatively, you needn’t be. You won’t be penalised for making a genuine claim with a solicitor in Ifield and you could even help to ensure that the University is made safer for other students and that no-one else is injured.
