Looking for Monmouth accident claim solicitors?
Being bullied can be one of the single most debilitating and horrendous experiences a person can have. Whether it’s a targeted campaign from one single person to another or a group versus an individual, bullying can last for many years and have a devastating long term effect on the victim.
Monmouth accident claim solicitors are able to fight for compensation on your behalf if bullying you suffered as a child has left a long term effect on your mental well being.
It’s a well known fact that children can be cruel. The mixture of hormones, exuberance and peer pressure can turn even the kindest of children into tormentors.
However, there is a huge difference between a little light tormenting and a campaign of bullying. There is often no reason why a child is victimised, but whether bullying is verbal, physical or threatening, it is likely to leave long lasting psychical and psychological scars which scientist believe can last well into adulthood (evidence gathered in April 2014 suggested that the effects could still be measured at age 40 after leaving school at age 16).
Some, but not all of the after effects of bullying could include:
- Depression and Anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Lack of motivation
- Physical health complaints
- Decrease in academic achievement.
Of course, in many cases, the bullying was done to children by children and as much as the child doing the bullying may have been aware of what they were doing, they may not be accountable for it as they had no way of realising the long term effects of their actions.
Claim your compensation
However, this does not mean that Monmouth accident claim solicitors would not be able to pursue compensation. The majority of bullying occurs within school or formal education. During our time at school, our well being and safety is in the hands of the education authority and as part of that the school we attend. This is known as a duty of care and means that anything which occurs within school time is covered by said duty.
Of course, schools have several hundred pupils to take care of at any one time and it would be unreasonable of Monmouth accident claim solicitors to suggest that every incidence of bullying should lead to a compensation claim.
However, in a situation where you may have reported the bullying on more than one occasion and the school failed to take action, Monmouth accident claim solicitors can seek compensation from the school on your behalf for the negligence they showed in dealing with your complaint.
