Education facility accidents that may result in the need to use expert injury lawyers in Plympton
Many types of accidents can happen when our children attend school, college or university, just a few of them are:
- A slip, trip or fall because of wet floors without warning signs, stairs with no handrail or perhaps the hole the gardener has dug and not clearly signed could have a student falling down it.
- Electric shocks from exposed wires, or trailing wires causing someone to trip over them
- Injuries from faulty equipment such as desks and chairs or faulty electrical equipment that gives a shock to someone
- Sporting and athletic injuries, not the normal ones you get in play, but ones caused by intentional or reckless behavior
- Being hit by a vehicle in the car parks
- Assault or bullying that cause trauma
- Sexual harassment or abuse
- Food poisoning perhaps contracted in the canteen
- Exposure to asbestos causing asbestos related diseases, this still happens in old buildings if it is not treated and removed correctly
- Heavy lifting without proper training
If any of these happen to you, or one of your children, and injuries are the result, whether physical or psychological, a personal injury claim using injury lawyers Plympton should be made, by the parents if the child is under 18.
