Can I make a claim against a teacher with injury solicitors in Wavendon?
If a child is hurt at school or playgroup and it wasn’t their fault, injury solicitors in Wavendon may be able to help them to obtain compensation for the harm that they’ve suffered. If they’ve been hurt in a school environment, it’s unlikely that injury solicitors in Wavendon would be able to help you to make a claim against the teacher directly but you could certainly work with injury solicitors in order to make a claim against the school or your local education authority.
However, if your child was receiving private tuition at the time of the incident, injury solicitors in Wavendon may be able to help you to make a claim against the teacher themselves.
Of course, when a child is hurt it can be an extremely traumatic and stressful time. Whilst making a claim with injury solicitors in Wavendon may not be your top priority, it can often be useful to gather all the information you need so you know where you stand when it does come to making a claim.
Firstly, there’s no need to panic if you’re unable to contact injury solicitors in Wavendon straightway. Often, injury solicitors will be able to help for up to three years after the incident has occurred so you could have plenty of time in which to make a claim.
Secondly, it’s possible for parents or guardians to act on behalf of children so they won’t necessarily be prevented from making a claim with injury solicitors simply because they are under eighteen. However, if they are able to make a successful claim, their compensation is unlikely to be awarded directly to their parents or guardians. Instead, it would be placed in a trust for them. Whilst their parents or guardians may act as trustees, the compensation would be awarded to the child directly.
