Injury lawyers in Sleat think we need to look after the children
Sleat is a peninsula on the Island of Skye in the Highland council area of Scotland. Sleat is a traditional parish that has several communities and two major landowners (the Clan Donald Lands Trust and Eilean Iarmain Estate). After the Trotternish peninsula, the Sleat peninsula is the second strongest Gaelic-speaking area in Skye. There was some local and national controversy in 2006 about the decision to change the status of the school from an English school with a Gaelic medium unit to a Gaelic school.
Sometimes accidents happen in schools, colleges and universities, and our children get hurt through no fault of their own. If in the last three years this has happened to your child, you should be talking to injury lawyers in Sleat about making a personal injury claim on their behalf.
Injury lawyers in Sleat say the minors need taking care of
In every way, parents or legal guardians see to the needs of our youngsters, so why should claiming compensation for them be any different? Their age should not stop the law being applied to them — the law that says if you have been injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else, the guilty party should compensate you. If your child is under 18, it is likely that a court would insist in the compensation being put into trust for when they are older.
The accidents that happen in schools, colleges and universities
Really, they are not much different to accidents that happen to adults anywhere else, but can include:
- Falling down stairs because of broken or lack of handrails;
- Slipping on wet floors that have no warning signs;
- Being hurt on damaged furniture;
- Burns or scalds in cookery classes or the chemistry labs;
- Sporting injuries that are outside of normal play;
- Being knocked over in the car parks;
- Assault by another pupil;
- Accidents while out on trips; and
- Accidents when there is unruly students because of a lack of supervision.
These are just a few examples of the accidents that can happen, and why you might want to make a personal injury claim on behalf of your child using injury lawyers in Sleat.
