Do you think you need an injury claim solicitor in Godmanchester?
The selection of people who may need to start a claim for compensation following a school accident with an injury claim solicitor in Godmanchester is potentially huge. Schools are a place of employment for many people and a place of learning for many more. The larger high schools can have several thousands of individuals on-site every day, and it is not surprising that accidents can sometimes happen. Smaller schools are not immune to the same sort of problems.
If you have had an accident at a school in Godmanchester, instead of looking for an injury claim solicitor in Godmanchester, just call us at Accident Advice Helpline instead.
What can go wrong in a school?
The simple answer to this question is – a lot of things! Here is just a small selection of the types of accident that can happen in a school:
- Cook slips on a greasy substance on the kitchen floor and suffers head injuries;
- Secretary suffers a repetitive strain injury in her hand after entering data;
- School maintenance worker falls from the school roof as he is cleaning guttering;
- Child falls from a piece of play equipment; and
- Teacher injures their back whilst lifting a heavy and awkward load.
What happens next?
Not all injuries can be the subject of a school injury claim – there are a few criteria that have to be fulfilled. If you, or your child, have been injured in an accident or incident in a school, then you should determine the following:
- Was the injury someone else’s fault?
- Was medical attention sought for the injury?
- Did the injury occur less than three years ago?
If you can answer yes to all of the above questions, then it is more likely that you will be able to pursue a school claim. If you are not sure about how to answer any of the questions, or you wish to discuss any aspect of your claim, then you should call us at Accident Advice Helpline at once on our freephone number. You can call us at any time of the day or night and on any day of the week.
How does a school claim work?
Once Accident Advice Helpline has agreed to help you with your case, you will be allocated one of our in-house solicitors who has experience of dealing with claims such as yours. You won’t need a personal injury claim solicitor in Godmanchester to help you.
The solicitor you are allocated will first of all set out to show who was at fault for the accident, which may involve collecting witness statements and documents, as well as taking account of your statement of what happened. He, or she, will then prove that you were injured, by obtaining your medical records.
You will also need to attend one medical assessment appointment, during which a medical assessment report will be prepared. Once liability has been admitted (the person at fault has admitted that they were to blame), your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor will negotiate a sum of compensation on your behalf.
