Finding a school accident injury claim lawyer in Stranraer at Accident Advice Helpline
Most accidents that happen in school are minor affairs, often down to the over-exuberance of children who trip over and sustain minor cuts and bruising. These do not warrant the raising of claims for any compensation. But sometimes, accidents occur that result in more serious injuries. In these instances, where the blame for the accident and injuries are the responsibility of the school, parents are justified in making a claim.
Typical causes of accidents that are down to the negligence or oversight of school staff include such things as:
- Broken glass being left on the floor or in the playground;
- Harmful chemicals being left within the reach of children;
- Trip hazards left in harm’s way;
- Faulty electrical equipment;
- Defective equipment in classrooms or the gym;
- Food poisoning; and
- Sports injuries.
The basic prerequisites any injury lawyer in Stranraer must first satisfy
- The blame for any accident, incident or circumstances that lead to an injury must be attributable to the school or a third party;
- The nature and severity of the injury must warrant a claim being raised;
- Medical proof of the nature and severity of the injury will be required; and
- The incident and injury must have taken place within the past three years.
With all of these prerequisites accordingly addressed, a specialist school accident injury claim lawyer in Stranraer or an expert from Accident Advice Helpline can set about helping claimants to obtain the compensation they are rightfully due.
Even when it’s not about the money
In many instances, claims for injuries sustained at school are not just about money. They are often instigated to ensure that another incident of a similar nature cannot take place. But having said that, if parents wish to establish how much any potential claim could be worth they can find out by visiting the Accident Advice Helpline website and making use of the compensation calculator that can be found on our homepage. After all, it only takes 30 seconds of anyone’s time to obtain an estimate.
