Injury claim solicitor in Godstone


A small proportion of the cases that are handled by Accident Advice Helpline arise in schools. Fortunately, the expert personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline have great experience in handling school personal injury claims, so they are well placed to help you with your school claim. These can be pursued by employees or by pupils.

Potential school employee claims

Manual handling injuries are very common in all types of workplaces — schools are no exception. It is not surprising, therefore, that some school claims involve a manual handling incident. The most common manual handling injury is a back injury. These can range from mild soft tissue injuries to more serious disc and joint issues. Some victims even require major spinal surgery with a long spell in hospital and lengthy rehabilitation.

A school injury claim can arise from a manual handling incident where the lifting task was not properly risk assessed before it was attempted and the correct equipment and environment were not provided. The risk assessment takes into account the weight and shape of the object(s) that need to be lifted and the frequency that they need to be lifted. The lighting and floor surface around the object also have to be taken into account.

If you have injured yourself in a manual handling incident in a school in the Godstone area, then you may be able to start a school claim with an injury claim solicitor in Godstone.

Starting a school claim

Start by jotting down all of the important information relating to your accident. This should include the following:

  • Was the accident your own fault?
  • Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
  • Was your accident less than three years ago?
  • Which part of your body was injured?

It is useful to have this sort of information close at hand, as these are the sort of questions that you will be answering in the Accident Advice Helpline unique 30-second test.

Next, ring Accident Advice Helpline and talk to our friendly, professional advisers to find out whether your claim is likely to succeed and how much compensation you may receive.

Getting compensation for your school injury

It is likely that you will be showing that your employer was at fault for your accident because they did not safeguard your health and safety at work. This may be because they did not adequately risk assess your lifting task or provide you with the correct equipment.

Once this has been established, your Accident Advice Helpline injury claim solicitor in Godstone will show that you suffered an injury in the accident. This is generally shown using your medical records and a specially prepared medical assessment report. Finally, a sum of money (compensation) is negotiated on your behalf.
