When children get injured at school, it’s very upsetting for parents, as we here at Accident Advice Helpline fully understand. Parents expect the schools they send their children to fully discharge their duty of care towards their young pupils; after all, they are responsible for their well-being while they are at school.
Minor injuries are of little consequence
Many of the minor accidents that take place at school are often down to the children themselves and are just put down to their own exuberance. Falls in the playground, causing grazes and bruises are commonplace and no one would expect to go chasing after financial compensation.
But when a more serious injury takes place, and the fault is down to the school itself, either because a member of staff has been negligent, or a child has been exposed to a safety hazard like a poorly wired electrical product, or something heavy falling on a child in a cupboard is opened, that is a different matter.
No win no fee in Crosby-on-Eden claims with Accident Advice Helpline
Deciding whether or not to pursue a claim for compensation is often difficult, especially when you’re dealing with something like a child’s school; and in fact, in general terms, only approximately 30% of potential injury claims are ever registered.
But pursuing a claim is about more than just claiming financial compensation; it also draws attention to what has happened, and creates opportunities for faults to be addressed in order to prevent a recurrence of the problem in future.
So when you commission us here at Accident Advice Helpline, to pursue your no win no fee in Crosby-on-Eden school injury claim, you are acting in everybody’s best interests, not just yours, or your child’s.
Try the 30 second test
To test your potential claim out, before you actually register it, you can take the 30 second test, by using the HOW MUCH calculator that you’ll find on our website’s homepage. From the information you provide, it will indicate whether or not you have a viable claim, and if so, will give you an estimate as to how much your no win no fee in Crosby-on-Eden claim could be worth.
All of this will of course be subject to confirmation once you have completed an injury claim application form.
Taking the 30 second test costs you absolutely nothing. It’s all part of our no win no fee service. The important things to remember are:
- The blame for the incident that caused the injury has to be attributable to a third party
- The type of injury, its severity, and the circumstances in which it was sustained, must be serious enough to warrant launching an injury claim
- The incident must have happened in the last three years
