Types of accident
Your injury claim lawyer in Grindleford will be able to help you making a financial claim for compensation if your child has been involved in a variety of accidents.
For example, your child might have been injured in a road traffic accident. They might have been the passenger in a vehicle which was directly responsible for the accident, or a passenger in a vehicle which was caught up in an accident caused by another road user. Equally, your child might have been a cyclist or pedestrian and been injured by another road user.
Your child might have been injured whilst travelling on public transport. Your injury lawyer Grindleford will advise you that such accidents do not always result from being involved in a road traffic collision. For example, an injury could occur as a result of a trip on a bus, or something falling on them from an overhead storage compartment whilst on a school trip on a coach.
Your child might be injured by a slip, trip or fall which occurred on school property, for example, if the playground had not been suitably gritted following a snow storm and the ground remains icy and treacherous.
Your child might be injured at an amusement park, theme park or in a playground. An injury may occur as the result of defective or faulty machinery or equipment, which, as the result of someone failing to report or maintain, has created a dangerous environment.
Should you claim?
Ultimately it is up to you whether you should make a claim or not, but your injury claim lawyer in Grindleford will know that you have every right to make a claim if your child has been injured in some way. You have a legal right to make the claim for compensation.
