As soon as your child arrives at school, his or her care is the sole responsibility of the teachers present. If your kid suffers an injury as the result of an accident that was not his or her fault while on school premises, either during school hours or while taking part in extracurricular activities or, God forbid, a detention, you may be able to use the services of good injury lawyers in Westward Ho to sue for compensation.
School personal injury claims and injury lawyers in Westward Ho
It doesn’t matter where or when your child was injured at school, if the accident they were involved in was not in any way their fault, you may be able to use the services of injury lawyers in Westward Ho or another legal firm to sue for compensation on their behalf. Perhaps your daughter was playing on a trampoline during PE and then asked by a teacher to help put the equipment away. If she was to be injured after her arm became trapped while putting the trampoline away, you may have a case.
Perchance your son was out in the playground enjoying a game of football during break time, only to slip on a patch of ice, fall down and break his arm. As it is a school’s responsibility to make sure a playground is safe to play on, particularly in cold weather, under these circumstances, you may be able to use the services of injury lawyers in Westward Ho to seek compensation.
You may even be able to launch a personal injury claim against your child’s school if he or she were to come down with a bout of food poisoning after eating a meal in the school canteen. When it comes to school trips, things might not be so cut and dried. There will be a chance that the owners or managers of the location that your child visited with the school might be liable instead.
