Has your child suffered an injury at school?
When a parent sends a child to school, they trust that they will be well looked after and cared for, as well as educated. As there are very strict guidelines regarding the treatment and supervision of children in schools, in most cases, the children are cared for appropriately.
Whilst many children will experience a few cuts or bruises whilst at school or playing, if a more serious incident or injury occurs, you may want to examine how and why this happened. For example, you may want to find out whether your child was properly supervised or if they were given inappropriate materials to use and whether this resulted in them being harmed.
As their school often owes the pupil a duty of care, they can be held responsible if an injury does occur. If for example, your child wasn’t supervised when they should have been and an injury occurred, your child may be able to obtain compensation for the harm that they suffered.
Can an expert solicitor in Holsworthy help a child to claim compensation?
Although many people assume that you have to be over the age of eighteen in order to make a compensation claim with an expert solicitor in Holsworthy, this isn’t always true.
If a child has suffered an injury which wasn’t their fault, a solicitor in Holsworthy could help them to obtain compensation as well.
Of course, as a parent or guardian, you may need to act on behalf of your child in order to facilitate a compensation claim and you may be required to liaise with a solicitor in Holsworthy or a personal injury law firm.
