Bamford is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District with a population of 1,241 at the time of the 2011 census. Once home to former Blue Peter presenter Peter Purves, the village today is best known for its annual carnival, which takes place in the third week of July. Bamford is well-connected to the surrounding area by road and has its own railway station, making it a popular spot with commuters. Those who have been injured here may struggle to find injury solicitors in Bamford, due to the village’s remote location, but you could always make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
Accidents in Bamford
If you or a member of your family have been injured in an accident in Bamford, you’re probably wondering what you can do about it. Parents can make a personal injury claim on behalf of their injured child, if the accident was somebody else’s fault. For example, if your child has been injured at nursery or school, you could make a 100% no win, no fee* claim with Accident Advice Helpline – you may not find many injury solicitors in Bamford who will offer this type of service. Here are a few examples of the types of school/nursery injuries we’ve handled over the years:
- Bumps and bruises, head injuries or facial injuries from colliding with another child
- Serious head and spinal injuries after a fall from height – for example from a climbing frame
- Slip, trip and fall injuries including cuts and broken bones
- Electric shock/burns from faulty electrics
- Cuts and bruises from faulty equipment or toys in the nursery
- Eye injuries, for example getting sand from the sand pit in their eyes or paint in their eyes
Obviously with proper supervision and care, most of these accidents could be avoided, but if your child has been injured, you could be eligible to make a claim.
