    Expert injury lawyers in Polzeath


    Polzeath is a small seaside resort in Cornwall. Until 1934 the main street through the village crossed the stream by means of a long ford. A footbridge was provided for pedestrians, which was sometimes washed away by winter storms. In 1934 the road bridge was built. Polzeath, just like towns and cities all over the UK has children who have to attend school.  We all like to think that when we leave our children in the care of their teachers they will be perfectly safe. When accidents do occur however, and someone else is to blame, you may wish to seek personal injury compensation with expert injury lawyers in Polzeath.

    Sometimes accidents happen at school, kids get knocks and bumped all the time.  What if the accident is worse than that, if they get injuries so bad they need medical attention, and this has happened through no fault of their own but through something the school are responsible for? You would then be perfectly within your rights to make a personal injury claim, using expert injury lawyers in Polzeath, on behalf of your child against the school.

    An accident at school could mean you need to use expert injury lawyers in Polzeath on behalf of your child

    Once your child is on school property, any number of things can go wrong, such as:

    • They could be hurt on damaged furniture
    • They could fall down wet stairs that have no warning signs, or the stairs could have a broken or missing handrail
    • In older buildings, they could be exposed to asbestos
    • They could be injured while in the gym because of a lack of teacher supervision
    • They could have contracted food poisoning
    • They could be run over by a car in the car parks

    These are just a sample of accidents that could happen, and if they are injured in one of these or any other accident at school, you should use injury lawyers to make a personal injury claim on their behalf.

    An accident claim against a school

    Victims, or their parents, sometimes have a problem making a claim against a school because they feel guilty that school funds will be used to pay damages – no need for this, the school will be insured for such incidents, a premium they have to pay whether or not any claims are made against them.
